Hello Simon Kelley

Referring to

The thread mainly focuses on Operating System side of a IPv6 dhclient functions.

But here are other aspects of the issue, more difficult to figure out:
The World of UEFI IPv6 network boot agents residing on a system's FW  (a.k.a UNDI)
Host Management (BMC's) that support IPv6

For those two dhclients, an administrator's nightmare begins in trying to understand what DUID approach was chosen by the original manufacturer ( the vendor )
And that would only go down the hill if more than one NIC exist in the system

Can you please comment on that, knowing what you know on DUID approach
How can a network administrator have control of the IP address assignment for specific clients, in  a DHCP server/dnsmasq config, to clients of the types I described above
This is just food for thought ...
