Description

Consider the following scenario:

  • You use a DHCP unique identifier (DUID) as a unique identifier in a network environment.
  • You use DUID and cable modem identifier mapping in the network.
  • You have client computers that are running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 in the network environment.
  • One of the client computers sends a DHCPv6 message from a cable modem.
  • Another client computer sends a DHCPv6 message that has the same DUID from a different cable modem.
  • The record for the new DUID and cable modem mapping overwrites the previous record.
  • In this scenario, the client computers have no network connectivity.

    This update should be installed to resolve this issue with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
