ProcedureHow to Add Options to a DHCP Macro (dhtadm)

  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. Add options to a macro by typing a command of the following format:

    # dhtadm -M -m macroname -e 'option=value' -g

    For example, to add the ability to negotiate leases in the macro bluenote, you would type the following command:

    # dhtadm -M -m bluenote -e 'LeaseNeg=_NULL_VALUE' -g

    Note that if an option does not require a value, you must use _NULL_VALUE as the value for the option.
