Ok, I was able to start the recovery from EMC Legato by choosing recover and then deleting ipv6 addressfrom both eth0 and loopback.

​I am happy to hear that you have a first success with the actual recovery.​ 

To make it easy , there should be a directive in /etc/rear/local.conf to disable ipv6.

​Yes and no. ReaR should faithfully replicate ​the network configuration of the original system. If IPv6 is disabled in your original system but not disabled in the rescue system then this is a bug.
Could you please be so kind and go to https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/new and create a GitHub issue for us to track this?

In case there is no such directive or option, can you please let me know where is the best place to start adding this option ?

​I think that ATM​ ReaR actually does not handle IPv6 whatsoever. As long as we don't I think that we should force IPv6 to be disabled regardless of the situation in the orginal system. Maybe also add a warning if IPv6 is active that ReaR does not support IPv6 and that the rescue system will not have IPv6 enabled.
For very simple setups (everything autoconfigured) it might work, but anything fancy probably won't. And of course all the IP mapping etc. also won't work.
Kind Regards,Schlomo
