Method to configure the DHCPv6 relay on S series switches

7

S series switches excluding the S1700 support the DHCPv6 relay function. You can use either of the following modes:
- Configure the IPv6 address of the DHCPv6 server or next-hop relay agent on the interface.
[HUAWEI] dhcp enable
[HUAWEI] ipv6
[HUAWEI] interface vlanif 100
[HUAWEI-Vlanif100] ipv6 enable
[HUAWEI-Vlanif100] dhcpv6 relay destination fc00:1::1 //Enable the relay function and configure the address of the DHCP server or next-hop relay agent.
- Bind the DHCPv6 server group to an interface.
[HUAWEI] dhcp enable
[HUAWEI] ipv6
[HUAWEI] dhcpv6 server group DHCPv6-srv1 //Create a DHCPv6 server group.
[HUAWEI-dhcpv6-server-group-DHCPv6-srv1] dhcpv6-server fc00:1::1 //Add the DHCPv6 server at fc00:1::1.
[HUAWEI-dhcpv6-server-group-DHCPv6-srv1] quit
[HUAWEI] interface vlanif 100
[HUAWEI-Vlanif100] ipv6 enable
[HUAWEI-Vlanif100] dhcpv6 relay server-select DHCPv6-srv1 //Bind the DHCPv6 server group that has been created to an interface.

Does DHCPv6 relay support PD relay on S series switch
Since V100R006C00, S series switches (except S1700 switches) support the Prefix Delegation with DHCP (DHCPv6-PD). You can view, delete, automatically generate, or manually configure routing information in the DHCPv6-PD table. The routing information in the DHCPv6-PD table will not be lost after the switch restarts.

Does the S series switch used as the DHCPv6 relay agent support PD relay
The S series switch (excluding the S1700) used as the DHCPv6 relay agent supports PD relay starting from V100R006C00. The switch can query, delete, and automatically generate routing information in the DHCPv6-PD table. You can manually configure routing information in the DHCPv6-PD table. The routing information in the DHCPv6-PD table is not lost after the switch restarts.

Method to configure the DHCP relay on S series switches
For S series switches excluding the S1700, when the DHCP client and the DHCP server are located on different network segments, configure a DHCP relay agent to assist the DHCP server in allocating IP addresses to DHCP clients. There is no difference of the DHCP relay configuration between all versions and models of Huawei S series switches.
