               The IPv6-Specific MIB Modules Are Obsolete

Abstract

   In 2005-2006, the IPv6 MIB update group published updated versions of
   the IP-MIB, UDP-MIB, TCP-MIB, and IP-FORWARD-MIB modules, which use
   the InetAddressType/InetAddress construct to handle IPv4 and IPv6 in
   the same table.  This document contains versions of the obsoleted
   IPV6-MIB, IPV6-TC, IPV6-ICMP-MIB, IPV6-TCP-MIB, and IPV6-UDP-MIB
   modules for the purpose of updating MIB module repositories.  This
   document obsoletes RFCs 2452, 2454, 2465, and 2466 (i.e., the RFCs
   containing these MIBs) and reclassifies them as Historic.

RFC 8096                IPv6 MIB Modules Obsolete             April 2017

1.  Motivation

   In 2005-2006, the IPv6 MIB update group published updated versions of
   the IP-MIB [RFC4293], UDP-MIB [RFC4113], TCP-MIB [RFC4022], and IP-
   FORWARD-MIB [RFC4292] modules, which use the InetAddressType/
   InetAddress construct to handle IPv4 and IPv6 in the same table.  The
   RFC Editor marked these documents as obsoleting the corresponding
   IPV6-MIBs, but the extracted content of these MIBs never changed in
   MIB repositories, and the original RFCs (as is normal IETF policy)
   never changed from being Proposed Standard.
