System Administration Guide: IP Services

ProcedureHow to Add a DHCP Network (DHCP Manager)

  1. In DHCP Manager, click the Addresses tab.

    Any networks already configured for DHCP service are listed.

    See How to Start and Stop DHCP Manager for information about DHCP Manager.

  2. Choose Network Wizard from the Edit menu.

  3. Select options, or type requested information. Use the decisions that you made during the planning phase to determine what information to specify.

    Planning is described in Planning DHCP Configuration of Your Remote Networks.

    If you have difficulty with the wizard, click Help in the wizard window. Your web browser displays help for the DHCP Network Wizard.

  4. Click Finish to complete the network configuration when you have finished specifying the requested information.

    The Network Wizard creates an empty network table, which is listed in the left pane of the window.

    The Network Wizard also creates a network macro whose name matches the IP address of the network.

  5. (Optional) Select the Macros tab and select the network macro to view the macro's contents.

    You can confirm that the information that you provided in the wizard has been inserted as values for options in the network macro.

You must add addresses for the network before the network's IP addresses can be managed under DHCP. See Adding IP Addresses to the DHCP Service for more information.

If you leave the network table empty, the DHCP server can still provide configuration information to clients. See Setting Up DHCP Clients to Receive Information Only (Task Map) for more information.
