I have no issues with clients receiving an ipv6 from the server.   The only real issue i have is the isc-dhcp-server6 doesnt service doesnt start on OS boot.  I have to start the service manually (service -isc-dhcp-server6 start) for the server to issue addresses.  I'm looking for a solution to where this server will start on boot.

 An automatic lease comes from an assigned range of addresses on a subnet after matching either the defined host statement to the client identifier or the hardware address. It's granted an infinite lease.

A Static lease is granted from an assigned address to client identifier or hardware address relationship. This is also granted an indefinite lease time.

Are the above statements correct?

Does the logic for a ping check get executed when processing requests for either of these lease types?
