Configuring the DHCP Server

The following commands allow you to configure the DHCP server included in the switch. The parameters available to configure include the IP address range, IP address lease, and multiple DHCP options. Until EXOS 15.1, the DHCP server had a limited set of known DHCP options it could send out on request, i.e., Default Gateway, DNS, and WINS server(s). General option support has been added in EXOS 15.2. This allows you to add support for any option needed, with no EXOS code changes. The three options mentioned above can also be overwritten to support a larger number of servers, if needed. This feature allows the switch administrator to add an option based on DHCP option code value, and support various was of setting the value.
