Abstract

The IPv6 stateless auto-configuration(SLAAC) mechanism allows a host to generate its own addresses using a combination of locally available information and information advertised by routers. This document describes a failure scenario for SLAAC and discusses how hosts can recover from this failure in a properly configured network.
