ProcedureHow to Specify Network Interfaces for DHCP Monitoring (dhcpconfig)

  1. Become superuser or assume a role or user name that is assigned to the DHCP Management profile.

    For more information about the DHCP Management profile, see Setting Up User Access to DHCP Commands.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Type the following command on the DHCP server system:

    # /usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -P INTERFACES=int,int,...

    int, int,... is a list of interfaces to monitor. The interface names must be separated by commas.

    For example, you would use the following command to monitor only ge0 and ge1:

    #/usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -P INTERFACES=ge0,ge1

    Interfaces that you want to ignore should be omitted from the dhcpconfig command line.

    The changes you make with this command persist across reboots.
