The term “client” is sometimes used to refer to a physical machine that is performing a client role on the network. However, the DHCP client described in this document is a software entity. The DHCP client is a daemon (dhcpagent) that runs in Oracle Solaris on a system that is configured to receive its network configuration from a DHCP server. The DHCP client can interoperate with both the legacy Sun DHCP server and the ISC DHCP server.
See Chapter 12, Configuring and Administering the DHCP Client for detailed information about the DHCP client.
