How to Configure a BOOTP Relay Agent (DHCP Manager)

  1. Select the system you want to use as a BOOTP relay agent.

    See Selecting a Server for DHCP.

  2. Become superuser on the server system.

  3. Type the following command:

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

    If the system has not been configured as a DHCP server or BOOTP relay agent, the DHCP Configuration Wizard starts. If the system has already been configured as a DHCP server, you cannot configure it as a BOOTP relay agent unless you unconfigure the server first. See Unconfiguring DHCP Servers and BOOTP Relay Agents.

  4. Select Configure as BOOTP Relay.

    The Configure BOOTP Relay dialog box opens.

  5. Type the IP address or host name of one or more DHCP servers that are configured to handle BOOTP or DHCP requests received by this BOOTP relay agent, and click Add.

  6. Click OK to exit the dialog box.

    Notice that the DHCP Manager offers only the File menu to exit the application and the Service menu to manage the server. Other menu options are disabled because they are useful only on a DHCP server.
