ProcedureHow to Change Values for Options in a DHCP Macro (dhtadm)

  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. Change option values by typing a command of the following format:

    # dhtadm -M -m macroname -e 'option=value:option=value' -g

    For example, to change the lease time and the Universal Time Offset in the macro bluenote, you would type:

    # dhtadm -M -m bluenote -e 'LeaseTim=43200:UTCOffst=28800' -g
