  • To enable state of interface to Dhcpv6 Stateful mode, Run the following netsh command from elevated command prompt:

     

    netsh interface ipv6 set interface ipv6 <interface_name> advertise=enable managed=enable

     

    I hope this answers your question.

  • The command is:
    netsh interface ipv6 show interface
    note the IDX number of the interface you want to use
    then
    netsh interface ipv6 set int "interface number" advertise=enable managed=enable

  • A step by step instruction how to enable a Windows host to use DHCPv6 to retrieve an IPv6 address can be found in the following KB article:

  • I found out that by applying the method in this KB 961433, the client actually DOES pick up an address from the DHCPv6 server in Windows 2008R2, but it does NOT add a route to the routing table telling how to route the IPv6 traffic for the internal LAN. This causes traffic to be delivered through the default gateway. To solve this problem, do NOT apply the commands provided in KB 961433 (you can simply reverse the commands if you already did so), but follow the instructions in the following forum topic instead. This will make the DHCPv6 server broadcast that it is providing IPv6 leases and will also broadcast the route to add in order to send traffic over the network. this saves you from having to go to each IPv6 client and execute the command and it follows the IPv6 suggested designs.

  • Don't you get two IP addresses at the client (one from DHCPv6 and one from the router advertisement)?  Three if temporary addresses are turned on.
