dhcpv6-pool (dhcpv6-server-policy-config)

Configures a DHCPv6 server address pool and enters its configuration mode. A DHCPv6 IPv6 pool is a resource from which IPv6 formatted addresses can be issued on DHCPv6 client requests. IPv6 addresses are composed of eight groups of four hexadecimal digits separated by colons.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000

dhcpv6-pool <DHCPv6-POOL-NAME>
<DHCPv6-POOL-NAME> Creates a DHCPv6 server address pool
  • <POOL-NAME> – Specify a name that appropriately identifies this DHCPv6 address pool. If the pool does not exist, it is created. The pool name cannot be modified as part of the edit process. However, an obsolete address pool can be deleted.
