Hi David,

Regardless of what the official position is, some of us using the ISC dhcpd, need a means of selecting a host declaration based on part of the DUID.  I don't want to get into whether this is the 'right-thing' to do or not. In order to make any sort of progress with our IPv6 roll-out, I cannot see any other alternative.  You indicated in an earlier post that it would be possible to either make 'hardware-address' work or expose the hardware-address in a DHUID-L or -LLT.  I have no problems with this functionality only working with a cmdline switch or a 'special option'.  Any idea as to when such functionality could become available ?
