Example for Configuring a DHCPv6 Client

Networking Requirements

In Figure 9-20, the router is required to function as a DHCPv6 client and obtain an IPv6 address and other configuration parameters from the DHCPv6 server. The address of the DHCPv6 server is fc00:3::1/64. The DHCPv6 server and client are on the same link.

Configuration Roadmap

The configuration roadmap is as follows:
  1. Enable IPv6 functions on the interface so that devices can communicate using IPv6.

  2. Enable the DHCPv6 client function so that devices can obtain IPv6 addresses using DHCPv6.


  1. Enable the DHCP service.

    <Huawei> system-view
    [Huawei] sysname Router A
    [Router A] dhcp enable

  2. Configure IPv6 functions on an interface.

    [Router A] ipv6
    [Router A] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
    [Router A-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] ipv6 enable
    [Router A-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] ipv6 address auto link-local

  3. Enable the DHCPv6 client function.

    # Enable the DHCPv6 client function on GE 0/0/1.

    [Router A-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] ipv6 address auto dhcp

  4. Verify the configuration.

    # Run the display dhcpv6 client command on the Router A to check the DHCPv6 client configurations.

    <Router A> display dhcpv6 client
    GigabitEthernet0/0/1 is in stateful DHCPv6 client mode.                         
    State is BOUND.
