    Release Information

    Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 11.3 for QFX Series switches.

    Description

    Set the minimum allowed number of seconds that the BOOTP client has waited before packets are forwarded, based on the secs field in the BOOTP request message. If the value of minimum-wait-time is less than the value of the secs field in the BOOTP request message, the packet is not forwarded to the BOOTP servers and relay agents that are configured at the hierarchy level of this statement. You can use the minimum-wait-time statement to determine which servers the device should forward packets to based on how long the BOOTP client has been waiting to receive a BOOTP reply from a server. The BOOTP client sets the secs field in the BOOTP request to reflect the number of seconds elapsed since the client began address acquisition or a renewal process.

    The default value for the minimum wait time is zero (0) seconds. If the minimum wait time is 0 and the secs field in the BOOTP request message is 0, the device forwards the packet.
