Make sure that you have read Chapter 13, Planning for DHCP Service (Tasks) before you configure your DHCP server. In particular, you should use the guidelines in Making Decisions for Your DHCP Server Configuration (Task Map) to help you perform the following tasks:
Select the system that you want to use as a DHCP server.
Make decisions about your data store, lease policy, and router information.
Become superuser on the server system.
Start DHCP Manager.
Choose the option Configure as DHCP Server.
The DHCP Configuration Wizard starts, to help you configure your server.
Select options, or type requested information, based on the decisions you made in the planning phase.
If you have difficulty, click Help in the wizard window to open your web browser and display help for the DHCP Configuration Wizard.
Click Finish to complete the server configuration when you have finished specifying the requested information.
At the Start Address Wizard prompt, click Yes to configure IP addresses for the server.
The Add Addresses to Network wizard enables you to specify which addresses to place under the control of DHCP.
Answer the prompts according to decisions you made in the planning phase.
See Making Decisions for IP Address Management (Task Map) for more information. If you have difficulty, click Help in the wizard window to open your web browser and display help for the Add Addresses to Network wizard.
Review your selections, and then click Finish to add the IP addresses to the network table.
The network table is updated with records for each address in the range you specified.
You can add more networks to the DHCP server with the Network Wizard, as explained in Adding DHCP Networks.
