I'm afraid I can't imagine this since I do not have the IPv6
operational experience to extrapolate. I do know enough to realize
thatr my IPv4 experience does not apply. Does anyone here know of
a resource that explains how IPv6 renumbering is accomplished in
a real-world operational context? I know that there are many
medium-sized networks who have gone through IPv6 renumbering recently
as they transitioned off the 6-bone tunnels and onto native
IPv6 networks.
