SYMPTOMS

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service on a Windows Server 2008-based computer interprets DHCPv6 Option 39 incorrectly. This behavior occurs when a DHCP client sends its fully qualified domain name (FQDN) in a DHCPv6 Option 39 message that is compliant with Request for Comments (RFC) 4704, "The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol for IPv6 (DHCPv6) Client Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) Option."
