           Triggering DHCPv6 Reconfiguration from Relay Agents

Abstract

   This document defines two new DHCPv6 messages: Reconfigure-Request    and Reconfigure-Reply.  The Reconfigure-Request message is sent by a    DHCPv6 relay agent to notify a DHCPv6 server about a configuration    information change, so that the DHCPv6 server can send a Reconfigure    message accordingly.  The Reconfigure-Reply message is used by the    server to acknowledge the receipt of the Reconfigure-Request message.
