Hi Community and Product Management,


from CA Support I just get the following information:


Currently, BSI is only "IPv6 Tolerant". Which means you can install the product on machines that are running both IPv6 and IPv4.  However, we still require that all IPv4 rules are followed, as we need IPv4 for most of our communication between components. Localhost must be resolvable to, the SQL Adapters still use IPv4 for addresses, etc.

The customer wants to switch to a “pure” IPV6.This applies to all CA BSI Servers: App,- Web,- and DB-Server.


So, we need to be able to run a “pure” IPv6 environment with CA BSI.

Kind regards,
Besim Dzemaili,

Besim_Dzemaili - We have determined that BSI can connect with servers using the server hostnames (see section on IPv6 in  Supportability Matrix - CA Business Service Insight - 8.3.5 - CA Technologies Documentation ). After additional consideration, we are not planning any further levels of support.

This is increasingly important, as especially large Telco providers are running out of IP V4 Addresses. As in recent BSI roadmaps, IP V6 support was already shown as "under consideration", I would take that this feature should be available soon
