bootp (dhcpv4-server-policy-config)

Configures a BOOTP specific configuration. Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) requests are used by UNIX diskless workstations to obtain the location of their boot image and IP address within the managed network. A BOOTP configuration server provides this information and also assigns an IP address from a configured pool of IP addresses. By default, all BOOTP requests are forwarded to the BOOTP configuration server by the controller. When enabled, this feature allows controllers, using this DHCP server policy, to ignore BOOTP requests.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
