Typically one does all the work, with the other on standby, ready to
take over when the first fails. Read up on HSRP and VRRP for more

Not at the moment, but afaict it matters not. Assigning fe80::1 to each
router means not having to fiddle with the actual link-local address.

Anyway, it works fine, except YaST can't assign static ipv6 routes.
