DHCP gets lease, but doesn't add address to interface
« on: December 14, 2011, 10:02:29 PM »

I'm not sure if I'm crazy or what, but this doesn't make sense...

I have native IPv6 from my ISP to my router/firewall (CentOS 6).
I have radvd advertising a subnet to my LAN segment.
I have isc dhcp offering DHCP leases in the same prefix to the same LAN segment.

My desktop is seeing the radvd RA's and configuring itself with a stateless address (I still don't know how; I assume it's the kernel that does this, not a daemon).
If I try to run a DHCP client, it says it's getting a lease and adding it, but it doesn't. Same behavior with isc dhclient and wide dhcp6c

Code: [Select]
# dhclient -6 -v -pf /var/run/dhclient.eth0.ipv6.pid -lf /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient.eth0.ipv6.leases -1 eth0

The above address is not on the interface, only the one that has been statelessly configured.

I'm pretty sure you have to tell it to accept DHCPv6 (with Windows you need to set two flags)

You didn't mention what OS you're running, but I"m sure if you Google for "[Your OS] dhcp ipv6 flag" you'll find what you want

Sorry, I did miss that. Firewall is running CentOS 6. My desktop is Debian 'squeeze'.

Much Google-fu has returned not much thus far, although I haven't tried any searches with the keyword 'flag' so I'll give that a shot.

Thanks for taking the time to reply :)
