When you configure the DHCP service on your network, you configure and start the first DHCP server. Other DHCP servers can be added later and can access the same data from a shared location if the data store supports shared data. This chapter describes tasks that enable you to configure the DHCP server and place networks and their associated IP addresses under DHCP management. This chapter also explains how to unconfigure a DHCP server.
Each task includes a procedure to help you perform the task in DHCP Manager and a procedure for the equivalent task with the dhcpconfig utility. This chapter contains the following information:
If you experience problems configuring the DHCP service, see Chapter 17, Troubleshooting DHCP (Reference).
After you configure the DHCP service, see Chapter 15, Administering DHCP (Tasks) for information about managing the DHCP service.
