How to rectify my initial IPv6 prefix?

To request for rectification of a PI Assignment, please follow the below steps;

    1. Log in to https://my.afrinic.net/
    2. Go to “Resources” > “IPv6 Resource
    3. Under “End-User Assignments”, click on “Request IPv6 Rectification”
    4. Fill in the below form;
      1. Select the prefix to be rectified.
      2. Select the new prefix size. You should select a nibble-aligned prefix size.
      3. Insert the preferred Netname. The name may be made up of letters, digits, the character underscore "_", and the character hyphen "-"; the first character of the name must be a letter, and the last character of a name must be a letter or a digit.
      4. Choose whether the prefix will be announced or not within 12 months of receiving the prefix. Examples of cases where the prefix shall not be announced are prefixes to be used for IXP peering LAN or private peering. If the prefix will not be announced, you will need to provide a valid reason.
      5. You may choose whether to request for a prefix which is adjacent to your existing prefix by selecting “Extend” or “Disaggregate” for a prefix which is not adjacent. Note that if you select “Extend”, a “Check Prefix” option will appear next to the prefix. You may check if the adjacent prefixes are available or not. If the existing prefix cannot be extended to the prefix size you chose, you will need to either choose a longer prefix length or choose Disaggregate.
      6. The rest of the form is optional, however, we encourage you to share an addressing plan which demonstrates how the requested prefix will be used. The addressing plan is required during the evaluation of your request.
      7. Once all the required information is provided in the form, click on “Request Rectification”.
