Comment 2 David Cantrell 2008-01-15 23:38:36 EST
Fixed upstream and will be in dhcpv6-1.0.5.
Comment 5 Zhiyong Wu 2008-02-20 03:57:54 EST
I thank that the test reports with dhcpv6-1.0.4 on rhel5.2 should be same with
those with dhcpv6-1.0.10 on rhel5.2

the bug still exists when using dhcpv6-1.0.10 to have a test.

for the test result, pls see:

Comment 6 Zhiyong Wu 2008-02-20 04:01:03 EST
a more thing, they are all running tests on dhcpv6 server.
Comment 8 Denise Dumas 2008-02-27 10:23:20 EST
In order to debug this problem, we need the test case for RHEL 5.2 with an exact
reproducer, including output with verbose debugging messages from the DHCPV6
software.  One way to do this would be to extract the commands that TAHI runs.
The man pages for dhcp6s, dhcp6r, and dhcp6c all show how to generate verbose
debug messages.

The current version of dhcpv6 does not work with multiple relays.  This is a known problem and will be 
addressed upstream.
