System Administration Guide: IP Services

ProcedureHow to Add a DHCP Network (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 -N network-address

    network-address is the IP address of the network you want to add to the DHCP service. See the dhcpconfig(1M) man page for suboptions you can use with the -N option.

    If you do not use suboptions, dhcpconfig uses network files to obtain information about the network.

You must add addresses for the network before the network's IP addresses can be managed under DHCP. See Adding IP Addresses to the DHCP Service for more information.

If you leave the network table empty, the DHCP server can still provide configuration information to clients. See Setting Up DHCP Clients to Receive Information Only (Task Map) for more information.
