[Subscriber Management] - Dual-Stack handling of separate IA_NA and PD Solicits over a single PPP session using DHCPv6 Local Server

0

Article ID: KB34594 KB Last Updated: 11 Jul 2019Version: 1.0
Summary:

This article explains the behavior of Enhanced-Subscriber Management for Dual-Stack PPP subscribers using DHCPv6 to request an IPv6 IA_NA and PD (Prefix-Delegation) via separate Solicits over a single PPP session.

Symptoms:

That following behavior maybe seen when a DHCPv6 CPE device sends a separate Solicit requesting an IA_NA (Global Address) address and a separate Solicit for a PD (prefix-delegated) address over the same PPP session.  The major complaint is that the first Solicit will be serviced, and a binding created.  The other address type will be seen trying over and over as the CPE fails to get the other requested address assigned.

In the example below, the MX is acting as an L2TP LNS for PPP subscribers performing Dual-Stack for both IA_NA and Prefix-Delegation.  Radius is providing both the IPv6 Framed address and IPv6 Delegated-Prefix upon client login.  The CPE will a send a separate DHCPv6 Solicit for PD first and then another for IA_NA which will fail.   The expectation is for the Enhanced Subscriber Management to service both Solicits individually.  However, this is not the case in some scenarios which will be discussed.

Example:

L2TP PPP session logs in to establish IPv4 connectivity and Link-Local address for IPv6.  The Ipv6 IA_NA and Prefix-Delegated address is returned via Radius AVP during the PPP authentication phase:

The CPE now sends a new Solicit requesting an IA_NA address.  This fails and there is no subscriber entry or binding.  The Solicit is seen and in some cases the Advertisement will be sent out as well.  In the output below, the Received Solicit count increased by 3 and the Sent Advertisement increased by 3, indicating that JDHCPD is receiving the Solicits and is sending the Advertisements in response.  However, you will notice that the Received Requests do not increment:

Enabling JDHCPD traceoptions will provide more insight on this behavior.  The traceoptions will show that the Solicit is seen and processed, but the sending status code is “NO_ADDR_AVAIL”:

As no address is found for the IA_NA request, the Advertisement is still sent to the client but has no address assigned.  This causes the client to resend the Solicit requesting an IA_NA address.  Most CPEs may never stop trying:

Cause:

DHCPv6 uses a client-id option.  Typically, the client-id represents the clients MAC address.  The client-id option is used to carry the DHCP Unique Identifier (DUID) as well. Each DHCPv6 client and server has a DUID.  A DUID consists of a two-octet type code represented in network byte order followed by a variable number of octets that make up the actual identifier.   A DUID can be no more than 128 octets long (not including the type code). 

There are 3 main types of DUID.   RFC3315 Section 9 describes in detail what each DUID type is in detail:

  1. Link-layer address plus time (DUID-LLT)
  2. Vendor-assigned unique ID based on Enterprise number (DUID-EN)
  3. Link-layer address (DUID-LL)

Only DUID type 2(DUID-EN) and type 3 (DUID-LL) will run into this issue where only the first Solicit (either request IA_NA or PD) will be serviced and the second will have NO_ADDR_AVAIL.  This is because these two types of DUID do not change.  Type 1 (DUID-LLT) will work fine as the type 1 is the link-layer and time.  The time will be unique between the 2 solicits and both will be serviced.

How to determine what DUID type is used by the CPE:

  1. Enable traceoptions for JDHCPD

    set system processes dhcp-service traceoptions file DHCP.log
    set system processes dhcp-service traceoptions file size 100m
    set system processes dhcp-service traceoptions file files 10
    set system processes dhcp-service traceoptions level all
    set system processes dhcp-service traceoptions flag

Find offending Solicit and look at option code 1 (client-id)

Note: Below are the DUID types in order (1,2 and 3)

  1. DUID type 1 link-layer plus Time (DUID-LLT)

    • 0x01 = Type 1 (LLT)

    • 0x2492afad = Time (this option makes the DUID UNIQUE between the IA_NA and PD solicits)

    • 0x005f01000001 = Link Layer (MAC)

Solution:

JUNOS needs to interpret each Solicit as being unique.  LLT has this ability. The CPE will use the Link-Layer (MAC) address and a Time stamp.  The Time Stamp is what makes the IA_NA solicit Unique from the PD solicit which contains its own time stamp.  For clients using DUID Type 1 LLT, JUNOS will be able to handle each Solicit separately starting in 16.2 and up ONLY if Radius is supplying the Framed-IPv6-Address and Delegated-Prefix during initial PPP login.

For DUID types 2 and 3, since the DUID options will be the same in each Solicit, the first Solicit will be handled accordingly and the next Solicit will not be able to assign an address.  For clients using DUID Type 2 or Type 3 Enhanced Subscriber Management requires that the following conditions are met:

  1. A single Solicit requesting IA_NA and PD

  2. RLI38500 was created to address separate Solicits for DUID type 2 and 3.  There is NO ETA at this time.
