interfaces dataplane <interface-name> vif <vif-id> dhcpv6-options

Specifies the way in which a DHCPv6 client is to acquire an address, parameters, or both from the DHCPv6 server.

set interfaces dataplane interface-name vif vif-id dhcpv6-options [ parameters-only | temporary ]
delete interfaces dataplane interface-name vif vif-id dhcpv6-options [ parameters-only | temporary ]
show interfaces dataplane interface-name vif vif-id dhcpv6-options
interface-name
The name of a data plane interface. For more information about the supported interface name formats, refer to Data Plane Interface.
vif-id
The ID of a vif. The ID ranges from 1 through 4094.
parameters-only
Acquires only configuration parameters (and not an IPv6 address) from the DHCPv6 server.

Only one of the parameters-only and the temporary parameters can be specified.

temporary
Acquires a temporary IPv6 address as described for IPv6 privacy addressing in RFC 4941.

Only one of the parameters-only and the temporary parameters can be specified.

Configuration mode


interfaces {
    dataplane interface-name {
       vif vif-id {
          dhcpv6-options [parameters-only | temporary]
       }
    }
}

Use this command to specify in what way the DHCPv6 client is to acquire an IPv6 address, parameters, or both from a DHCPv6 server.

Note that the parameters are relevant only if the dhcpv6 option has been set for interfaces dataplane <interface-name> vif <vif-id>.

The parameters-only parameter is typically used with Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC) or static address configuration. The parameters-only and temporary parameters are mutually exclusive.

Use the set form of this command to specify the DHCPv6 options for a vif.

Use the delete form of this command to remove the DHCPv6 options from a vif.

Use the show form of this command to view DHCPv6 option configuration of a vif.
