Steinar - I would be very uncomfortable with, and probably would not want to
use, DHCP options which would let the DHCP server control address allocation
without any kind of preconfiguration on the router.

What kind of preconfiguration on the router you need ? Pls. read my reply to
Bernie's question.

OPTION_PREFIX_POOL defined in this draft just help your relay to know which
pool your customer's prefix are from, and this information could help your
router to do the dynamic route aggregation, which sounds your need on your
PE router.


Best Regards,
Leaf

> BTW - I think I may have indicated this before, but does this really avoid
the need for configuration on the router (relay)? How are items such as the
link-address and next hop (dhcp server) addresses configured (rfc 3315 has a
multicast default)? So there is still a bunch of "manual" configuration
required? Admittedly you do say "more automation" but not really sure that
has a lot of value - perhaps we need a Dynamic Router Configuration BOF?

As an operator I would prefer DHCPv6 to work similarly to DHCPv4 in a
typical scenario of:

- Large pools are explicitly configured on routers (relay agents).
- DHCP server is allowed to hand out addresses *within these pools*.
- Routers (relay agents) use information in the relayed DHCP packets to
build up some state (for instance making it possible to invalidate the IP
address when the lease expires).

Thus the DHCP server has a *limited* amount of freedom to hand out IP within
pools already known by the routers.

I would be very uncomfortable with, and probably would not want to use, DHCP
options which would let the DHCP server control address allocation without
any kind of preconfiguration on the router.
