RE: Disabling IPV6 during kickstart



If you walk through a interactive install using the "noipv6" directive for anaconda you will notice the eth device used for kickstart will display IPV6 disabled in the gui

My ifcfg-eth0 file contains: IPV6INIT=no
My /etc/sysconfig/network contains: NETWORKING_IPV6=no

I've got that part, and it's working. I want IPV6 to not be enabled on the interface when the node comes up after it kickstarts and boots.

Here's the /etc/sysconfig/network file after the host boots. But it's not enabled on the primary interface, so maybe that's all I can hope for.

# more /etc/sysconfig/network
NETWORKING_IPV6=yes
