9.0.0

After configuring both Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server, you can now deploy DHCPv6 to a DNS/DHCP Server.

To deploy DHCPv6:

  1. Select the Servers tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  2. Under Servers, select the check box for one or more servers.
  3. Click Action and select Deploy.
  4. Under Confirm Server Deploy, review the list of servers to be updated, then under Services, select the services to be deployed to the server: either DNS, DHCP, DHCPv6, or TFTP.
Verify that DHCPv6 has deployed properly by viewing one of the following files.
  • Syslog—you will see:
    DHCPv6[XXXX]: Created DHCPv6 lock
    DHCPv6[XXXX]: Enable DHCPv6
    DHCPv6[XXXX]: Removed DHCPv6 lock
  • DHCPv6 Configuration file—located in /replicated/etc/dhcp6s.conf. Look for an entry similar to:
    subnet6 2001:DB8::/64 {
    range6 2001:DB8::1 2001:DB8::400;
    }
  • DHCPv6 Leases—located in /var/state/dhcp/dhcp6.leases. Look for an entry similar to:
    ia-na ")\014\000\016\000\001\000\001\022\374=\247\000\014)\252\265\233" {
      cltt 1 2011/10/03 11:27:22;
      iaaddr 2001:DB8::3dd {
        binding state active;
        preferred-life 27000;
        max-life 43200;
        ends 1 2011/10/03 23:27:22;
      }
    }
