This starts in ~10 minutes (12:00 8/06/2011 NZST). Anyone finding any problems? Who is using ipv6? Any ISPs coming to the party and allowing users to use ipv6?

We've turned on IPv6 for all our clients permanently as of 11pm last night. Telstra is turning it on for some of their hosted sites but clients wont get v6 till next year. MS is turning on v6 for bing and xbox. I'm not heard anything about other NZ isp's turning it on as most are still in the trial stage I believe

Yep, going to take a few hours for the TTL's to expire for anyone who's got cached records

Not many NZ sites taking part. But Google, Yahoo, Bing, Youtube, Facebook etc should be a good test of ipv6 (probably 1/3 of all internet traffic there).

Seeing a decent increase in v6 traffic (v4 blue, v6 green)

I have just got a Tunnelbroker tunnel running on my Cisco 877 with DHCP6 to the rest of the network, and it appears to be working well.

All the sites that now have AAAA records I have not have any problems with, and one site (Linode) who are in the "Trial" plans on leaving it on unless if their customers report any major problems.

I personally think that any site that has IPv6 enabled on it now, should just leave it on - it might end up that way with some sites.

http://www.akamai.com/ipv6 is a good site to look at for IPv6 uptake.

Akamai didn't switch it on for most clients as it was a opt in thing only, Most Akamai stuff is still coming v4 only
