Maybe you should be looking at DHCPv6 if you want those kinds of logs.

I'm guessing that because the sniffing box doesn't have an address on each VLAN, it's not participating in ND and registering for multicast, so we're getting pruned. IGMP snooping is on by default on all VLANs.

Is there a way to tell the switch to force IPv6 multicast traffic for ff02::1 to go to a specific port? Our core is a QFX5100; the other switches in the network are a mix of EX3200/4200/3400.
