Managing IPv6 - BlueCat Address Manager - 8.3.1

Address Manager Administration Guide

BlueCat Address Manager

Manage IPv6 blocks, networks, and addresses on the IP Space tab’s IPv6 tab.

Create AAAA resource records to resolve host names to 128-bit IPv6 addresses, and PTR records to resolve IPv6 addresses to host names. IPv6 does not support the concept of broadcast communication; instead, it relies on multicasting to communicate with a group of hosts.

Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server both support DHCPv6. Because the protocol is still being defined, there are some limitations to its use. Only a single IPv6 network can be deployed using DHCPv6 and there are only two available deployment options: the IP address of a recursive DNS server and the domain search list.
