WDS with ipv6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am trying to provisioning the windows using WDS in the ipv6 environment. Though we have set up the WDS on one of the Windows machine without DHCPv6 as we have already a DHCPv6 server in the same network, we did not see any offer from this WDS machine  while we are trying to lanboot in the UEFI shell.

    So I would like to know necessary requirements and configuration details for provisioning the Windows from a WDS in ipv6 environment.

    Looking forward to help from you folks.

  • Hi Harinath, 

    If we want to configure IPv6 during WDS setup, we need to configure the following network parameter. Please note that if you don’t setup IPv6 as a static address then you will get a few errors along the way. 

    Address – 2001:db8::1234:1
    Subnet Prefix – 64
    DNS – 2001:db8::1234:1
