Does the dhcpv6 server provide the subnet information to the client like dhcpv4?

Hi all,

In ipv4 configuration, we can specify the netmask key word like below,

subnet netmask {


and the client can acquire the subnet information from the dhcpv4 server.

in ipv6 configuration, we can also specify the subnet network:

subnet6 2001:0:0:9::/64 {


but the client can not acquire the subnet information from the dhcpv6
server, is that

Any input would be appreciated!

Best Regards,
Derek Wang
