[lxc-users] ZeroTier Docker IPv6 6plane for LXD

Thank you for the feedback!

I manually changed LXD_IPV6_ARG in /usr/lib/lxd/lxd-bridge to

LXD_IPV6_ARG="--enable-ra --dhcp-range=::1, ::e825:FFFF,
constructor:lxdbr0, ra-names, 12h --listen-address ${LXD_IPV6_ADDR}"

However, dnsmasq requires a minimal prefix of /64:
dnsmasq: bad command line options: prefix length must be at least 64

This requirement is also documented in its man page.

So I think the easiest would be to manually set the ip in the container.

Is it possible to provide the contents
of /etc/network/interfaces.d/50-cloud-init.cfg through lxd as a config
option or parameter per container?

Regards.
