DHCPv6 can be in much the same way as you'd have used DHCP in a v4
environment, ie, use it to assign, an IP, subnet mask, default router,
DNS, domain info, etc.
DHCPv6 can also be used in concert with router
advertisements/solicitations to issue the configuration that "rtadvd"
In my deployments thus far, I've been relying on "rtadvd" for client
addressing, prefix-length, & router information, and on DHCPv6 for DNS
server info, domain info, and to initiate a Dynamic-DNS registration on
my *nix clients.
