Description

When changing the configuration of an interface currently dhcp6c is killed and restarted. That comes with all kinds of problems, for example addressess are dropped and need to be re-acquired. Instead dhcp6ctl should be used with the start/stop commands for that interface so others are unaffected.

  • Target version changed from 2.7.0 to CE-Next
  • Plus Target Version changed from 22.11 to Plus-Next

It's something we can consider, but a change like this could have other fallout that might need to be accounted for, can't make any commitments on a timeframe.
