Configuration mode


interfaces {
	    bridge brx {
		       dhcpv6-options [parameters-only | temporary]
	    }
}

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

Note that these parameters are only relevant if the dhcpv6 option has been set for the interfaces bridge brx address address command. Otherwise, they are ignored.

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

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

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

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