AOS8 AP Deployment IPv6 Only Network

    I recently worked on a project focusing on how an AP discovers its controller in an IPv6 only network.

    IPv6 address allocation, DHCPv6 Stateful & Stateless plus the AP discovery options lead to interesting design considerations.

    I've summarized all this in the attached document.

     

    Thanks to Ben van Zeggelaar and Kevin Marshall for their assistance.

    I'm currently designing a v6-only deployment.

     

    Sniffing dhcpv6 solicits and requests, I did not find any way to identify an aruba ap by the dhcpv6-request to utilize client-classes in kea (similar to option 60 'vendor class identifier' in legacy-ip).

     

    Is there anything I can use to classify it as an ArubaAP?
