Linux DHCP


The Linux DHCP Server DSM for JSA accepts DHCP events using syslog.

JSA records all relevant events from a Linux DHCP Server. Before you configure JSA to integrate with a Linux DHCP Server, you must configure syslog within your Linux DHCP Server to forward syslog events to JSA.

For more information on configuring your Linux DHCP Server, consult the man pages or associated documentation for your DHCP daemon.

  1. Log in to JSA.
