Updated: December 16, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

red

The DHCPv6 Relay Agent is a Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) relay agent that relays Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) messages between DHCP clients and DHCP servers on different IP networks. For each IP network segment that contains DHCP clients, either a DHCP server or a computer acting as a DHCPv6 Relay Agent is required.

After the DHCPv6 Relay Agent (IPBOOTP) is initialized, the DHCP Relay Agent can relay DHCP/BOOTP requests and responses from different networks.

  3. Click Yes to confirm the deletion.
  4. Under IPv6, right-click General, and then click New Routing Protocol.
  5. Click DHCPv6 Relay Agent, and then click OK.

Check memory usage on the server

To check memory usage on the remote access server:

  1. On the remote access server, click Start, click Run, type taskmgr, and then click OK.
  2. In the Windows Task Manager dialog box, click the Performance tab.
  3. Under Physical Memory, check the remote access server's memory usage.
