I have been trying to find solution for providing host based DHCPv6 options.
Using host-identifier option under host declaration block has given me no
result. If you have not read my earlier mail, this my network configuration.

preferred-lifetime 2000;
default-lease-time 2000;

subnet6 fc00:0000:4491::/64 {
    range6 fc00:0000:4491:0200::25 fc00:0000:4491:0200::100;

host test-box {    host-identifier option dhcp6.client-id
    option dhcp6.name-servers fc00:0:4491::18;
# the client-id is perfectly matches hex-string displayed in wireshark

Well while trying to debug that ... in the DHCP4.0.0a1 release notes I
noticed that, under DHCP limitations,

<<The "host-identifier" option is limited to a simple token>>

What does this exactly mean? Do you think it has anything to do with the
problem I am facing.
