Novell DHCP for IPv6

Running oes 15sp1
using Novell DHCP
I see in services dhcpd6 when I try to start it says it not configured. Does Novell dhcp support ipv6 addressing and how to you configure it? The documentation has nothing in it on dhcpv6.

Well, some basics first. There is no "Novell DHCP". The DHCP Server in
OES is the "original" linux ISC DHCP server, entirely unaltered.

The only thing Novell has added, is a nice GUI for the eDirectory (LDAP)
configuration. But you could as well point a, say, buntu box against
that configuration, and it would work.

Now of IPv6. Dhcpd6 too is the original ISC dhcp server for v6, and it
also supports ldap as configuration source.

*But*, there is currently no added gui to configure it, no. As IPv6 is
mostly self-configuring, and dhcp in the majority of cases isn't
strictly necessary, the demand for it is basically non-existant.

Feel free to add an idea at https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-oes
