Technical Summary This document specifies a DHCP relay agent information sub-option that causes the DHCP server to insert a different value for the Server Identifier option instead of the IP address of the DHCP server. By inserting the IP address of the DHCP relay agent option in the Server Identifier option, the DHCP client will send all DHCP messages through the DHCP relay agent, which is useful in some deployments in which the DHCP relay agent maintains state about the DHCP client. Working Group Summary The DHC WG reviewed this document and raised several issues during the WG last call. All of the issues have been resolved or addressed in this revision of the draft. Protocol Quality This specification is an extension to the DHCP specification. It provides the same function as the requirement in RFC 3315, DHCP for IPv6, that all DHCP messages be sent to the IPv6 All_DHCP_Relay_Agents_and_Servers multicast address. This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman. Note to RFC Editor Please change: OLD: the DHCP Relay should forward all DHCP packets all servers. NEW: the DHCP Relay SHOULD forward all DHCP packets to all servers.
