    Use of DHCP Option 50 to Request a Specific IP Address

    Subscriber management enables you to specify that DHCP local server assign a particular address to a client. For example, if a client is disconnected, you might use this capability to assign the same address that the client was using prior to being disconnected. If the requested address is available, DHCP assigns it to the client. If the address is unavailable, the DHCP local server offers another address, based on the address allocation process.

    DHCP local server supports the specific address request feature. DHCP local server uses DHCP option 50 in DHCP DISCOVER messages to request a particular address.
