IPv6 provides abundant address space and automatic network-parameter configuration. The IETF has proposed three approaches for DNS configuration in IPv6 hosts for recursive DNS server addresses and the DNS search list. The authors analyze these approaches and describe four deployment scenarios in IPv6 wired and wireless networks. They provide guidelines for DNS configuration that IPv6 network administrators and users can apply in their target networks.
