Re: How to get IPv6 Address for configuring in hp-ux from IPv4

You need a network that will support it first - are your switches and routers set up for ipv6.

FROM WIKIPEDIA:
IPv6 hosts can configure themselves automatically when connected to a routed IPv6 network using ICMPv6 router discovery messages. When first connected to a network, a host sends a link-local multicast router solicitation request for its configuration parameters; if configured suitably, routers respond to such a request with a router advertisement packet that contains network-layer configuration parameters
