Router Advertisement Daemon
Since yesterday my ISP gave me access to IPV6
I got everything working but I have 1 issue here
every time PFSENSE reboots I have to manually restart the Router Advertisement Daemon otherwise my clients don't have IPV6 access
could this be a bug or I am missing something ?
I'm running the latest version of pfsense 2.3.1 , I use stateless config , with dhcp6 enabled same issue occurs

Are you merely restarting the router advertisement daemon? I have a similar issue but I must do something else to get IPv6 working again for the LAN.
If I halt pfSense, power cycle my modem and restart pfSense, the router advertisements pfSense sends don't include a default route. pfSense itself has full IPv6 connectivity but restarting radvd doesn't fix the advertisements. I have to go to interfaces->WAN and click save, then apply to get IPv6 for the LAN again.
In my logs under system->routing, I see this:
no auto-selected prefix on interface re1, disabling advertisements
I did the (pfSense halt, modem power cycle, pfSense poweron) multiple times and this happened each time. Seems like a new issue with 2.3.1?
I run pfsense as a vm on my esxi6 server
when I live migrate the nic for the lan to another nic then it works instantly
after reboot same issue
when I then migrate the lan nic to the original nic then it works also …until I reboot
your workaround works also for me
I have found the solution!
instead of configuring the lan interface to 'track interface' , I used a static ipv6 address and now it works
also those messages in the log are gone now
