Windows 8 does DHCPv6 by default
« on: April 07, 2014, 07:33:46 AM »

I was doing some playing around with a Server 2012 R2 DHCPv6 server today and noticed that Windows 8.1 will automatically pick up an address from DHCPv6.  (Windows 7 wouldn't do this without some configuration changes with netsh and some luck.)  It will also propagate IPv6 DNS servers automatically

FWIW FYI

Windows 7 dhcpv6 Just Worked(TM) for me. Nothing extra needed to be done.
