Solaris DHCP Administration Guide

How to Start DHCP Manager

  1. (Optional) Become superuser on the DHCP server system.

  2. If you are logged in to the DHCP server system remotely, you can display DHCP Manager on your local system as follows.

    1. Type the following on the local system:


      # xhost +server-name
      
    2. Type the following on the remote DHCP server system:


      # DISPLAY=local-hostname;export DISPLAY
      
  3. Type the following command:


    # /usr/sadm/admin/bin/dhcpmgr &
    

    The DHCP Manager window opens, displaying the Addresses tab if the server is configured as a DHCP server, or no tabs if the server is configured as a BOOTP relay agent.
