option-82 (DHCP Local Server Pool Matching)



Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0.


Configure the extended DHCP local server to use the option 82 value in the DHCP client DHCP PDU together with the ip-address-first method to determine which address-assignment pool to use. You must configure the ip-address-first statement before configuring the option-82 statement. The DHCP local server first determines which address-assignment pool to use based on the ip-address-first method. Then, the local server matches the option 82 value in the client PDU with the option 82 configuration in the address-assignment pool. This statement is supported for IPv4 address-assignment pools only.
