  ipv6 dhcp client never started.

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm in a ipv6 network that sets ip number with dhcpv6 and not using
  the stateless protocol.

  but using ubuntu 15.04 there is never any dhclient started for ipv6
  and no way to change any configuration that I can find to start it.

  if I attach the cable and then manually start dhclient with "dhclient
  -6 -i eth3_109" I do get a ipv6 address and things works as intended.

  There has to be some way to star the dhclient software from network
  manager but I can't find it.

  There should be two dhclients started per network device one for ipv4
  and one for ipv6 only one is started for me.
