You will be greeted with a popup explaining that a new replacement IPv6 subnet is available. Click Yes to continue

You will be shown a success popup to say the new IPv6 subnet has been claimed, from here we must now configure the subnet

Step 4:

Here you need to go to the networking tab on your VM manage page and select Manage on the new IPv6 subnet 

Step 5:

We need to add a new IPv6 from our subnet, we recommend using :2 as seen below, then press Add
