When setting up a router as dchp server in ipv4, we specify a pool under which we give the network and the default-gateway and that's it:

However in ipv6 stateless dhcp , we create the pool then refer it in A PARTICULAR INTERFACE

Why can't we do something for all the interfaces like in the ipv4 case ?

  • I'm not really familiar with Cisco, but doing DHCPv4 with one subnet on multiple LANs is not a great idea either. Especially if machines need to reach each other within the subnet.

    Because v4 and v6 are totally different things, that work in totally different ways. Stateless DHCPv6 doesn't hand out addresses, just "other" information. (yes, DHCP in IPv6 was a bolt-on afterthought. SLAAC is The One True Way(tm), except the nuts ignored all the other things a host needs to function)
