Unable to ping two VM instances with IPv6 address via DHCPv6

Hello all,

I am using Netwon release openstack and have a requirement of using IPv6 for a complete stack. I have created a tenant network with IPv6 subnet 2001:db8::/64 with a default gateway. Also selected 'Stateful DHCPv6' as option for IP allocation.

I am able to see IPs are getting allocated on the Horizon but I cant see them visible in the VM. I have to do 'dhclient -6 eth1' to attach already allocated IPv6 to VM.

I can see this on one VM:

3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP group default qlen 1000
link/ether fa:16:3e:28:22:a5 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet6 2001:db8::c/128 scope global 
   valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
inet6 fe80::f816:3eff:fe28:22a5/64 scope link 
   valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

IP is there but subnet is /128. Hence, it can't ping any other IP.

Am I missing any configuration on tenant network?

Regards AB

UPDATE 1: I tried to ping these IPs from dhcp but it dint work as well.
