IPv6 and dhcpv6.vendor-opts

Hi all,

I've been trying for a while now to make dhcpv6.vendor-opts and omapi work.

So far, I write the host entry successfully (at least that's what I think).
The client requests the host well, the IPv6 gets assigned (fixed address)
but the vendor options won't work.

Whether I write in the host entry:

    option dhcp6.vendor-opts 6d:79:2d:6f:70:74:69:6f:6e:73;

    option dhcp6.vendor-opts "my-options";

What I can see in the leases file in the dhclient lease is:

    option vsio.unknown-1836658031 "ptions";

4 characters are gone.

In the dhclient.conf I set:

    request dhcp6.vendor-opts;

When setting the ORO 17 request no options are sent whatsoever.

Any hint of why is not working?
