ISC DHCP ipv4 and ipv6 options

Hi

I am looking to set-up ISC DHCP to support ipv6, and to migrate my existing SUN DHCP ipv4 to ISC,

finding the ipv4 options for the SUN DHCP options was ok eg
TFTPsrvN = tftp-server-name
OptBootF = bootfile-name

However if I set up a DHCPv6 does anyone know what the equivalent options are I have checked
ISC DHCPv6 Options
but can't seem to find what I am looking for anybody got any ideas

Thanks
sken

If you just want to define the equivalent info if the client is IPv6 rather than IPv4, i.e telling the client the server where it can find the boot file, and the boot file location on that server, the options for IPv6 are

59 OPT_BOOTFILE_URL
60 OPT_BOOTFILE_PARAM

Option code 59 is a URL, but can be an IP address if enclosed in brackets, []

Option code 60 can be a boot file, similar format to what you'd define in OptBootF for an IPv4 client.

Exact details are defined in RFC 5970
Obviously the IPv6 client needs request those parameters.

If you are just porting IPv4 DHCP definitions from Solaris DHCP to ISC DHCP the option codes are the same , 66 and 67
