J. Brzozowski: AUTHOR [+4]
Redundancy and high availability for many components of IPv6 infrastructure are desirable and, in some deployments, mandatory. Unfortunately, for DHCPv6 there is currently no standards-based failover or redundancy protocol. An interim solution is to provide semi-redundant services: this document specifies an architecture by which this can be achieved.
