Technical Summary This document describes four options for NIS-related configuration information in DHCPv6: NIS Servers , NIS+ Servers , NIS Client Domain Name , NIS+ Client Domain name . Working Group Summary This document was produced by the DHC WG and has been through WG last call and IETF last call. In the last call process, it was verified that an IPv6 implementation of NIS is available. Protocol Quality This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman. RFC Editor Note: RFC Editor, please change section 1. of the document as follows: OLD: 1. Introduction This document describes four options for passing configuration information related to Network Information Service (NIS)  in DHCPv6 (RFC 3315 ). NEW: 1. Introduction This document describes four options for passing configuration information related to Network Information Service (NIS)  in DHCPv6 (RFC 3315 ). The options defined in this draft can only be used to configure information about NIS servers that can be reached using IPv6. The DHCP option to configure information about IPv4 NIS servers can be found in RFC 2132 . Mechanisms for configuring IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack applications are being considered, but are not specified in this document. And, please add an additional informative reference:  Alexander, S. and Droms, R., "DHCP Options and BOOTP Vendor Extensions", RFC 2132, March 1997.
