router discovery, but fixed server IP?

I have a CentOS box, which is getting its address dynamically, and also learning the router dynamically:


If I enter an address in ifcfg-eth0 ("IPV6ADDR=2001:..."), it seems to be ignored, in favor of the dynamic address.  Is there a way to have static host IP, but discover router dynamically?


AFAIK, no, you can't.  If you tell it to use a static IP, you also need to tell it what the gateway is


There's also nothing stopping you from adding a static IP to the interface after it autoconfigs to have a static of your choosing as well as the autoconfig.
