9.2.0

Add a DHCPv6 deployment role to a network. Each network can have only a single assigned DHCP role.

DHCP roles are always set to Master or None. Roles set to None are used for DHCP services that have been designed in Address Manager, but aren't yet ready to be deployed.

Attention: To add a DHCPv6 deployment role to an DNS/DHCP Server, the server must have an IPv6 address configured only from the Address Manager web application. You can assign an IPv6 address to the Service interface (eth0) when adding or replacing a server.
Attention: DHCPv6 deployment roles previously assigned on software version 6.7.x or earlier will be preserved after upgrading to Address Manager v8.3.0. However, those servers can't be assigned any new DHCPv6 roles. Servers running software version v6.7.x or earlier must be upgraded to DNS/DHCP Server v8.1.0 or greater and be configured with an IPv6 address from the Address Manager web application to be assigned a DHCPv6 deployment role.

To add a DHCPv6 deployment role:

  1. Select the IP Space tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  2. Click the IPv6 tab. In the IPv6 Blocks section, click the FC00::/6 or the 2003::/3 address space.
  3. Click the Deployment Roles tab.

    1. Under Servers, click a server name or xHA pair.
    2. Under Server Interfaces, select the server interface and click Add. If necessary, click Up to return to the list of servers.
    The selected server interface appears in the Server Interface section and a new Secondary Server section also appears. If necessary, click Remove to delete the server and start again.
  7. Under Secondary Server, click Select Secondary Server Interface to add a secondary server for DHCPv6 High Availability.
    1. Under Servers, click a server name or xHA pair.
    2. Under Server Interfaces, select the server interface and click Add. If necessary, click Up to return to the list of servers.
