I am running 6.43.8 though this issue has persisted over several previous versions.

 

On a restart, the IPV6 DHCP client gets stuck on status "binding". I have to manually disable, then enable, and then IPV6 works.

 

Is there any way to fix this for reliable restarts?

Inspire, but since posting the above I have learned this is a known Mikrotik issue.

Looking at https://ipv6.inspire.net.nz/ they run Juniper BNGs. If they are like 2Degrees, they configure their end not to respond to router advertisements (RA). The CPE needs to be configured to proceeed to dhcp6 using link local addressing, otherwise it will hang waiting for the BNG. Do you have a link to the Mikrotik issue so that others can follow?

If you want IPv6 on a Mikrotik you need to understand exactly how it works and the limitations (ie bugs) it has.
