Solaris DHCP Administration Guide

How to Add a DHCP Network (DHCP Manager)

  1. Click the Addresses tab in DHCP Manager.

    Any networks already configured for DHCP service are listed.

  2. Choose Network Wizard from the Edit menu.

  3. Select options or type requested information based on the decisions you made during the planning phase.

    Planning is described in Planning for Remote Network Configuration.

    If you have difficulty with the wizard, click Help in the wizard window to open your web browser and display help for the DHCP Network Wizard.

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

    The Network Wizard creates a network macro whose name matches the IP address of the network. If you click the Macros tab in the DHCP Manager window and select the network macro, you can confirm that the information you provided in the wizard has been inserted as values for options contained in the macro.

    The Network Wizard creates an empty network table, which is listed in the left pane of the window. You must add addresses for the network before the network's IP addresses can be managed under DHCP. See Adding Addresses to the DHCP Service for more information.
