In this tutorial we will learn to  Deploy and Configure DHCPv6 Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 .It’s working very similar to DHCP Server in IPv4.

We need to create DHCPv6 POOL and named in this Lab our pool name will be LANR1. And Finally we have to tell the router interface connected with Client machines about the DHCP POOL LANR1.

DHCP for IPv6 Address Assignement

DHCPv6 configuration

Step 1:First Configure IPv6 address on Router.



Router#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#host R1

R1(config)#int fa0/0

R1(config-if)#ipv6 add 2000:1111:AAAA:BBBB::1/64

R1(config-if)#no shut



R1(config)#int fa0/1

R1(config-if)#ipv6 add 2000:1111:AAAA:CCCC::1/64

R1(config-if)#no shut



R1(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing




Step 2:Assign IP Address to DNS SERVER

Step3:Configure DHCPv6 for IPv6 on Cisco Router R1:

DHCP Configuration on IPv6


R1(config)#ipv6 unicast-routing

R1(config)#ipv6 dhcp pool LANR1

R1(config-dhcp)#dns-server 2000:1111:AAAA:BBBB::2


R1(config-dhcp)#prefix-delegation pool LANR1


R1(config)#ipv6 local pool LANR1 2000:1111:AAAA:CCCC::/64 64

R1(config)#int fa0/1

R1(config-if)#ipv6 dhcp server LANR1

R1(config-if)#ipv6 ND managed-config-flag



Step 4:Check DHCP Options on Client PC
