Hi friends, I have a server where I need to set IPv6, I have given IPv6 address as given by provider in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
But when I restart network, it gives following error:

Code: [Select]
# service network restart
Shutting down interface eth0:                              [  OK  ]
Shutting down interface venet0:  Shutting down interface venet0:

This is centos 6.5 with openvz virtulization. And when I use ping to check ipv6:
Code: [Select]
# ping6 ipv6.google.com
PING ipv6.google.com(ord08s09-in-x03.1e100.net) 56 data bytes

64 bytes from ord08s09-in-x03.1e100.net: icmp_seq=4 ttl=53 time=93.2 ms
--- ipv6.google.com ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3367ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 93.141/93.185/93.244/0.308 ms

So IPv6 is working, but then what is that error all about ?
