This specification extends DHCPv6 so that a DHCPv6 Relay Agent can dynamically inform the DHCPv6 server about the IP connectivity status of a host. The IP connectivity status information is also triggered by any change in the connectivity as provided to the host. The DHCPv6 server uses this information as an input to its decision- making about configuration parameters to be conveyed to that host.
