Hi Peter. During the dev meeting Jake and other authority operators asked for a DocTor check for the reachability of their IPv6 ORPort. Presently five authorities have an IPv6 address and five don't.

tor26      => 2001:858:2:2:aabb:0:563b:1526
gabelmoo   => 2001:638:a000:4140::ffff:189
longclaw   => 2620:13:4000:8000:60:f3ff:fea1:7cff
maatuska   => 2001:67c:289c::9
urras      => has an ipv6 address, but authority is currently down
moria1     => no ipv6 address
dizum      => no ipv6 address
Tonga      => no ipv6 address
dannenberg => no ipv6 address
Faravahar  => no ipv6 address

This is all well and good, and I started writing a DocTor check, but I'm green to IPv6 and running into an issue on cappadocicum...

% ping6 2001:858:2:2:aabb:0:563b:1526
connect: Network is unreachable

% test -f /proc/net/if_inet6 && echo "Running kernel is IPv6 ready"
Running kernel is IPv6 ready

% lsmod | grep -w 'ipv6' | wc -l

No doubt something simple. Most Debian tips such as a 6to4 config look to require elevated permissions. If this is something I can/should sort out myself then tips welcome. :)

atagar, I'm currently working on IPv6 bootstrapping for clients. In my initial patch, I used the 2 authority IPv6 addresses available in Globe. Is there another place I should look (apart from this ticket) to find the latest IPv6 addresses for the authorities?
(Apologies for the off-topic question.)

Hi teor, you can find the IPv6 addresses by looking at their descriptors. See the DocTor check I mentioned above - the IPv6 address is part of the or_address entry of the consensus' router status entries.

We can't get IPv6 at 1984. If you need IPv6 for the doctor host, we need to move the service.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by atagar

Sure, can do. If we have another spot available then happy to move it over.

Hi Peter, just a quick bump since I've had another person ask for IPv6 checks (this time on #18177). If this is in my court then let me know.

It is still blocking on getting (more) space for VMs in one of the places that do v6.

Thanks for the ping.

I have set up carinatum and copied the doctor tree to /srv. We can do another sync-run later. Note that carinatum is running jessie.

Thanks Peter! Disabled DocTor on cappadocicum, synced with carinatum, and resumed the crontab there. Gonna keep this open to keep an eye on this for a day. Once I've seen this happily chugging along I'll resolve this ticket.

I'll leave /srv/ around on cappadocicum but after we see this working on carinatum you're welcome to drop it from disk if you'd like.

Resolution: implemented
Status: newclosed

DocTor has been chugging quite happily on carinatum for a full day now, successfully sending notices. Resolving.
