This document defines two new DHCPv6 messages: Reconfigure-Request
and Reconfigure-Reply.  The Reconfigure-Request message is sent by a
DHCPv6 relay agent to notify a DHCPv6 server about a configuration
information change, so that the DHCPv6 server can send a Reconfigure
message accordingly.  The Reconfigure-Reply message is used by the
server to acknowledge the receipt of the Reconfigure-Request message.

This document is a product of the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
