    Overriding Default DHCP Local Server Configuration Settings

    Subscriber management enables you to override certain default DHCP local server configuration settings. You can override settings at the global level or in a routing instance level, for a named group of interfaces, or for a specific interface within a named group.

    • To override global default DHCP local server configuration options, include the overrides statement and its subordinate statements at the [edit system services dhcp-local-server] hierarchy level. In a routing instance, include the overrides statement and its subordinate statements at the [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name system services dhcp-local-server] hierarchy level.
    • To override DHCP local server configuration options for a named group of interfaces, include the statements at the [edit system services dhcp-local-server group group-name] hierarchy level. In a routing instance, include the statements at the [edit routing-instances <routing-instance-name> system services dhcp-local-server group group-name] hierarchy level.
    • To override DHCP local server configuration options for a specific interface within a named group of interfaces, include the statements at the [edit system services dhcp-local-server group group-name interface] hierarchy level. In a routing instance, include the statements at the [edit routing-instances routing-instance-name system services dhcp-local-server group group-name interface] hierarchy level.

    To override default DHCP local server configuration settings:

    1. Specify that you want to configure override options.

      Global override:

      [edit system services dhcp-local-server]
      user@host# edit overrides

      Group level override:

      [edit system services dhcp-local-server]
      user@host# edit group boston overrides

      Per-interface override:

      [edit system services dhcp-local-server]
      user@host# edit group boston overrides interface ge-1/0/1.1
    2. (Optional) Override the maximum number of DHCP clients allowed per interface.

      See Specifying the Maximum Number of DHCP Clients Per Interface.

    3. (Optional) Configure DHCP client auto logout.
