Stateful addresses

A DHCPv6 server configures stateful IPv6 addresses on HP Jetdirect print servers. A DHCPv6 policy on the print server determines when to use the DHCPv6 server for stateful configuration. You can select one of the following DHCPv6 policies for the print server to use:

Under router control Use DHCPv6 stateful configuration when requested by the router.

Stateless configuration fails Use DHCPv6 stateful configuration if stateless configuration fails.

Always use DHCPv6 On startup, always use DHCPv6 for stateful configuration.

Stateful configuration is useful when host configuration beyond that provided by a router is necessary, such as a domain name or DNS server addresses.
