ipv6 DHCPv6 BOOTP Relay Service

Usage Guidelines

Use this command to configure the remote-id option as described in RFC-4649 to an IPv6 BOOTP relay/DHCP relay agent. After receiving an IPv6 BOOTP/DHCP request packet on the specified VLAN, the agent adds the configured identifier to the packet and passes it to the server. If this option is configured to be as system-name, the switch name is used as the remote-id. The same can be unconfigured using the none option. After unconfiguring this option, the switch MAC address (the default value), is used as remote-id. This option can be configured orunconfigured to a specified VLAN or to all VLANs.
