Wolrd IPV6 Day is this Wednesday.

The big change is that they aren't "shutting it off" after the test.

We're making / expecting no changes for Wednesday, as we're still taking the head in the sand approach.  (As the summer progresses, we'll be looking at IPV6 pilots)

We have taken a different approach to the World IPv6 Launch @ UPenn.  We have enabled IPv6 on all of our 802.1X campus subnets for wireless.  So far, things look good.  We use 12 Aruba M3 controllers to support about 3000 APs on campus and we turned on RA-guard on our controllers since enabling IPv6.  Every day we run some scripts to take snapshots on IPv6 concurrent user counts.  Since campus is pretty empty right now, we only see about 700 users at a time, but I imagine that when fall comes, it’ll be interesting to see how that fares.  We have different L3 subnets for each building on campus, so we run a very large IP mobility deployment here.  I have done some extensive testing with mobility and roaming with respect to IPv6 – so far things still work well.  I’d be interested in hearing some other people’s experiences on this.

We have had ipv6 turned on on our aruba wireless network since (checks blog) March 2010.

It is all working smoothly now, but we have discovered issues with the firewall after a few of the upgrades. I believe it may be because we don't have a PEF license. If we turn off the ipv6 firewall, everything is fine.
