dhcpconfig Features

The dhcpconfig utility supports a list of options that allow you to configure and unconfigure a DHCP server, as well as convert to a new data store and import/export data to and from other DHCP servers. When you use the dhcpconfig utility to configure a DHCP server, it obtains information from the system files discussed in Updating System Files and Netmask Tables. You cannot view and confirm the information it obtains from system files as you can with DHCP Manager, so it is important that the system files be updated before you run dhcpconfig. You can also use command-line options to override the values dhcpconfig would obtain by default from system files. The dhcpconfig command can be used in scripts. Please see the dhcpconfig man page for more information.
