so, what problems are there with dhcpv6 that differ from those we have
experienced with dchpv4?  what would be good to know before trying to
deploy it?

do organizations you know prefer autoconf or dhcpv6? and why?

Actually we are using stateless form of DHCPv6 to announce DNS servers with autoconf + static address comfiguration for servers. This is satisfactory for a small organisation like us (less than 40 persons). We are testing DHCPv6 also. For a larger organisation (>1000 computer) I will ask my colleagues about their DHCPv6 experiences....
