       obtains	the  configuration parameters from the Dynamic Host Configura‐
       tion Protocol (DHCPv6) server to configure the host.  See dhcpv6d(1M).

       supports the following options:
       Specify the default list of parameters  that  the  client  daemon  must
       request	from  the server daemon.  If this option is not specified, the
       client daemon will request all the configuration	 parameters  mentioned
       below.	The  list  of  configuration  parameters  that	the client can
       request are listed below:
	      Obtain a list of one or more IPv6	 addresses  of	DNS  recursive
	      name  servers  to	 which	a  client's  DNS resolver may send DNS

	      Obtain the domain search list that the  client  must  use	 while
	      resolving hostnames
		     using DNS.

	      Obtain  the  list	 of  IPv6 addresses that indicate SIP outbound
	      proxy servers
		     available to the client.

	      Obtain the domain names of the SIP outbound proxy	 servers  that
	      the client
		     can use.

	      Obtain the list of IPv6 addresses of one or more NIS servers
		     available to the client.

	      to log all messages to the file, including information and warn‐
	      ing messages.

       Specify the User-Class data used to represent the client in its
	      communication with the server. This option can  have  a  maximum
	      length of 16 characters. Multiple options can be used to specify
	      multiple values for  the	User-Class  data.   Depending  on  the
	      classes identified by this option, the server selects configura‐
	      tion information for the client. The User-Class option  is  used
	      to identify the type or category of the client.

       Specify the vendor-class data to be used in the client's communication
	      with  a  server. The vendor-class data contains a series of dis‐
	      tinct items, each of which describes the characteristics of  the
	      client's hardware configuration.

       The  file  is  used  for the configuration of the interfaces. To invoke
       using the script, set the variable to a non-zero value in the file. The
       script  invokes	and during bootup to obtain IP addresses.  can also be
       invoked at the command prompt.

       Once has obtained the configuration  parameters	from  the  server,  it
       stores  them in a configuration file named The configuration parameters
       are valid for a fixed time, the lease time.  The automatically tries to
       renew  the  configuration parameters before the expiration of the lease
       time. If the server responds, the  lease	 times	of  the	 configuration
       parameters are automatically extended.
