Syntax

Parameter

Description

dns-server

IPv6 address of the 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.

switch-gw-ipv6

Configure 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.

<ipv6-address>

IPv6 address of the DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  DNSDomain Name System.

domain-name

Domain name to which the client belongs.

lease

The amount of time that the assigned IPv6 address is valid for the client. Specify the lease in <days> <hours> <minutes> <seconds>. The default value is 12 hours.

network

The DHCPv6 network prefix.

no

Negates any configured parameter.

option

Client-specific option code and IPv6 address or text. See RFCRequest For Comments. RFC is a commonly used format for the Internet standards documentss. 3315, DHCPv6.

preference

The DHCPv6 server preference.

Usage Guidelines

A DHCPv6 pool should be created for each IPv6 subnetwork for which DHCPv6 services should be provided. DHCPv6 pools are not specifically tied to VLANsVirtual 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., as the DHCPv6 server exists on every 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.. When the Mobility Master receives a DHCPv6 request from a client, it examines the origin of the request to determine if it should respond. If the IPv6 address of the 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. matches a configured DHCPv6 pool, the Mobility Master answers the request.

Example

The following command configures a DHCPv6 pool:

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config) #ipv6 dhcp pool DHCPv6

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #dns-server 2001:470:20::2

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #domain-name test.org

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #lease 0 12 0 0

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #network 2001:470:20::/64

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #option 24 text “Domain Search List”

(host) [/md/X.X.X.X.X.X] (config-submode) #preference 25

The following example displays the use of extended scope of address range, which is restricted only to DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  pool configuration:
