ProcedureHow to Assign a Consistent IP Address to a DHCP Client (pntadm)

  1. Become superuser or assume a role or user name that is assigned to the DHCP Management profile.

    For more information about the DHCP Management profile, see Setting Up User Access to DHCP Commands.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Set the lease flags by typing a command of the following format:

    # pntadm -M ip-address -i client-id -f MANUAL+BOOTP network-address

    For example, to enable the Oracle Solaris DHCP client whose MAC address is 08:00:20:94:12:1E to always receive IP address, you would type:

    pntadm -M -i 0108002094121E -f MANUAL+BOOTP

    Tip –

    Refer to the Client ID entry in Table 15–4 for more information about how to determine client identifiers.
