ProcedureHow to Unconfigure a DHCP Server or a BOOTP Relay Agent (dhcpconfig -U)

  1. Log in to the DHCP server or the BOOTP relay agent system that you want to unconfigure.

  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. Unconfigure the DHCP server or the BOOTP relay agent:

    # /usr/sbin/dhcpconfig -U

    If the server does not use shared data, you can also use the -x option to remove the dhcptab and network tables. If the server uses shared data, do not use the -x option. The -h option can be used to remove host names from the host table. See the dhcpconfig(1M) man page for more information about dhcpconfig options.

    See DHCP Data on an Unconfigured Server for more information about removing data.
