How to enable IPv6 for a CloudFont distribution along with SSL in Route53?


Current Route 53 configuration for IPv4 is:

  • -> pointing to
  • --> pointing to (another record in this hosted zone) (I've got that working for, work in progress as I have requested SSL only for *, not for yet)

So far, I have tried to

  • activate IPv6 in the CloudFront distribution
  • create AAAA IPv6 records in Route53 for both and, each pointing to (again)

After enabling the latter, neither (www or without) works anymore. What am I missing?

Please check if the domain name can be resolved using the "dig" or "nslookup" command.
Also, please make sure that this configuration is completed successfully.
