ProcedureHow to Configure a BOOTP Relay Agent (dhcpconfig -R )

Before You Begin

Select the system that you want to use as a BOOTP relay agent, using the requirements listed in Selecting a Host to Run the DHCP Service.

  1. Log in to the server that you want to configure as a BOOTP relay agent.

  2. 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.

  3. Configure the BOOTP relay agent by typing a command of the following format:

    # /usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -R server-addresses

    Specify one or more IP addresses of DHCP servers to which you want requests to be forwarded. If you specify more than one address, separate the addresses with commas.

    For example, you might type a command similar to the following:

    /usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -R,
