DHCPv6 Server

The DHCPv6 server enables network administrators to configure stateful or stateless options and manage dynamic IPv6 users connecting to a network. You can also configure domain name server using DHCPv6.

You can configure IPv6 pools with various configurations such as lease duration, DNSDomain Name System. A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users. It converts human-readable computer host names into IP addresses and IP addresses into host names. It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. server, vendor specific options, and user defined options using DHCPv6. You can also exclude IPv6 addresses from subnetsSubnet is the logical division of an IP network.. Managed Device IPv6 addresses, VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. interface IPv6 addresses, and DNSDomain Name System.

Similar to DHCPv4, a DHCPv6 server pool is associated with a VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. only through the IPv6 address configured in that VLANVirtual Local Area Network.

In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. interface can have a maximum of three global unicast addresses, but only one DHCPv6 pool.

DHCPv6 server supports stateless configuration of clients with options apart from the network addresses described in RFCRequest For Comments. RFC is a commonly used format for the Internet standards documentss. 3736.

Points to Remember

Similar to IPv4, the default router configuration is not required for IPv6 pools as IPv6-compliant routers will send RAs. The RARouter Advertisement. The RA messages are sent by the routers in the network when the hosts send multicast router solicitation to the multicast address of all routers. source address will be the default-gatewayGateway is a network node that allows traffic to flow in and out of the network. for the clients.

ArubaOS does not support Hospitality feature on DHCPv6.
