I was wondering if you could help me enable IPV6?

On my root#/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth2 IT doesn't show

IPV6ADDR=

IPV6_DEFAULTGW=

only

DEVICE=eth2

HWADDR=00:25:90:79:31:AE

TYPE=Ethernet

UUID=5a2094c3-78d7-4bc6-8af6-b57ea92563cd

ONBOOT=yes

NM_CONTROLLED=yes

BOOTPROTO=dhcp

 

I am trying to follow this guide here http://kbeezie.com/ipv6.txt

You have to add those to the file, they aren't included. Can just add it to the bottom of the file, modify values, save, etc.

Where can I find the Values for it?

Like I know I have to add 

IPV6ADDR=

IPV6_DEFAULTGW=

But I am not sure what to put in for the values.

Well the IPV6ADDR is the IPV6 address you'd like to assign to the node, and the IPV6_DefaultGW is the default gateway (gateway IP + the /subnet)

For example

IPV6ADDR=1234:5678:0123::2

IPV6DEFAULTGW=1234:5678:0123::1/48

Example IP space, obviously use your own in that case -- and the /48 is the subnet you have access to from your provider so make sure to use the proper values based on what was assigned.

Not to be taken seriously, ever!
You should have those values from your host/provider of the dedicated server.

If you are doing this on an OpenVZ node, one thing that you need to keep in mind is that you will need to run a script on the node to enable IPv6 for each container. This script is provided by SolusVM themselves and it is loaded on the node when you install SolusVM.

/scripts/openvz-ipv6

Where is the beer!
Im not trying to be mean but why are you offering vps services if you dont have a clue what your doing? But hey more power to you though for trying!

Everyone thank you for the great information, sorry for bothering you all.

Just never had much experience with networking.
