Release Information

Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.
Command used without any keywords introduced in JunosE Release 8.2.0.
unknown keyword added in JunosE Release 9.2.0.


When used without any optional keywords, creates and enables DHCP relay in the current virtual router independent of any DHCP servers.

When used with optional keywords, adds a new DHCP/BOOTP server and specifies that the E Series router is either a DHCP relay or DHCP relay proxy between the DHCP client and DHCP server. Optionally, configures the DHCP relay agent, including specifying the DHCP relay agent information (option 82) that is included in all packets forwarded to the DHCP server.

If you issue the set dhcp relay command when a local server has been configured, the local server is deactivated.

The no version used without other keywords deletes the DHCP relay agent and its configuration from the virtual route. The no version used with optional keywords removes the specified server or disables the specified relay agent configuration.

Note: The set dhcp relay agent command, when used to configure option 82 suboptions, is a legacy command, which JunosE Software continues to support to provide backward-compatibility for existing scripts. We recommend that you use the dhcp relay agent sub-option command for new option 82 suboption configurations.
