Assigning IPv6 address to the Switch

Hi Experts,

I'm new to IPv6 and have some doubt on configuration.

I have a 4500 switch which is supposed to get a IPv6 address via dhcp from a linux machine.

On the linux machine I have configured a pool on the /64 prefix and it handsover ip to the 4500 switch.

the problem is: although I have configured /64 prefix on my Linux PC, the switch always gets the IP on the /128 prefix so because of that i'm unable to ping the dhcp server from the client (Switch).

an I doing something wrong with my configuration

My configuration on the switch is as follows:

Switch#sh run int gig1/1

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 100 bytes

!

interface GigabitEthernet1/1

no switchport

ip address dhcp

ipv6 address dhcp

ipv6 enable

end

The logs says the following:

Switch#

Any reason why is it always assigning an ip address from the /128 mask?

Thanks for your help in advance.
