	I think a minimum is a good idea, but it probably should not be
reset to 24 
	hours.  That's probably not what an admin intended by setting the
value that 
	low.

	Also, are 0 or 0xffffffff a special case like elsewhere in dhcpv6?
I am not 
	sure it's necessary; I am just bringing up the point.

	Thanks,
	Joe Quanaim.

	I agree that this is an issue, but I don't think it's something this
document 
	should address.  It's a larger part of the dhcp specification, and
the 
	example you gave could happen in stateful configuration as well.

	For the example involving dns and this option, I read the draft as
such: when 
	the option expires, don't dismiss the configured dns data.  Request
new 
	information.  When new information is received, replace the existing
data 
	with the newly obtained.  This prevents the client from being left
without 
	dns while making an attempt to be current.  Also, if a server
returns an 
	empty set of dns servers, that is what the client should use.  It
doesn't 
	make much sense, but misconfigured dhcp servers aren't something a
client 
	should be programmed to handle.

	Generalizing this issue is not simple.  How does a dhcp client
update the ntp 
	configuration?  And why does it?  The ntp configuration could be
pointing to 
	a server reachable from multiple networks.  This seems like local
policy.

	Hi,
	    Can you please clarify  in he RFC 3315 (DHCP6) 

	   "Appearance of Options in Message Types" section mentions that
the dhcp6 relay should support 
	     vendor class option.
	  
	    But in the message processing in the "Section 22.16 Vendor Class
Option"  does not mention any 
	    thing about this for relay . It only mentions about how the
client should process this.

	     Can some one please clarify this  what should be done for dhcp6
relay ?


	regards,
	keshava
