How to Add a DHCP Network (dhcpconfig)

  1. Become superuser or a user assigned to the DHCP Management profile .

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

    # /usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -N network_address

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

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

  3. Add IP addresses for the network so clients on the network can obtain addresses.
