Best Practices for Conducting an IPv6 Inventory

  • Gather information about all your IPv4 devices Servers, network equipment, firewalls, desktops and look at applications that ride on that equipment
  • Determine if devices are capable of running IPv6
  • Look at the operating system software they run and then compare to vendor specifications
  • Establish a core team of project managers as most of the data gathering will need to be done manually
  • The Cisco IPv6 Scorecard (available through World Wide Technology), can help gather some of this information
