       Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) bis


   This document describes the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for
   IPv6 (DHCPv6): an extensible mechanism for configuring nodes with
   network configuration parameters, IP addresses, and prefixes.
   Parameters can be provided statelessly, or in combination with
   stateful assignment of one or more IPv6 addresses and/or IPv6
   prefixes.  DHCPv6 can operate either in place of or in addition to
   stateless address autoconfiguration (SLAAC).

   This document updates the text from RFC3315, the original DHCPv6
   specification, and incorporates prefix delegation (RFC3633),
   stateless DHCPv6 (RFC3736), an option to specify an upper bound for
   how long a client should wait before refreshing information
   (RFC4242), a mechanism for throttling DHCPv6 clients when DHCPv6
   service is not available (RFC7083), and clarifies the interactions
   between modes of operation (RFC7550).  As such, this document
   obsoletes RFC3315, RFC3633, RFC3736, RFC4242, RFC7083, and RFC7550.
