Description (partial)

DHCPv6 client is not able to get IPv6 address once LDRA server-facing policy is enabled on the uplink of switch.

"debug ipv6 dhcp-ldra" shows SOLICIT message received from the client and RELAY-FORWARD message generated by the switch, but the RELAY-FORWARD message is not put on the wire.

*Jan 28 06:51:56.504: DHCPv6 LDRA EVENT: [Gi5/1 Vlan 114] Received SOLICIT from FE80::277:8DFF:FE38:A16C to FF02::1:2.
*Jan 28 06:51:56.504: DHCPv6 LDRA EVENT: [Vlan 114] Sending RELAY-FORWARD from F
VANIR#E80::277:8DFF:FE38:A16C to FF02::1:2.

There are no RELAY-REPLY in the debug.
Packet capture on the uplink doesn't show any DHCPv6 packets relayed.

- DHCPv6 client is connected to an access switch which has dual/redundant uplinks:

Interface           Role Sts Cost      Prio.Nbr Type
------------------- ---- --- --------- -------- --------------------------------
Te1/1               Altn BLK 500       128.1    P2p  ### 2nd uplink blocked by STP
Te1/2               Root FWD 200       128.2    P2p ### 1st uplink 
Gi5/1               Desg FWD 4         128.513  P2p  ### Client port

- Client facing interface has a client-facing LDRA policy (either trusted or untrusted) 
- Uplinks have a server-facing LDRA policy
