Configuring a Domain Name and Domain Search List for a DHCP Server Host

To configure the name of the domain in which clients search for a DHCP server host, include the domain-name statement:

domain-name domain;

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

[edit system services dhcp][edit system services dhcp pool][edit system services dhcp static-binding]

The domain-name statement sets the domain name that is appended to hostnames that are not fully qualified. This statement is optional. If you do not configure a domain name, the default is the client’s current domain.

To configure a domain search list, include the domain-search statement:

domain-search [ domain-list ];

You can include this statement at the following hierarchy levels:

[edit system services dhcp][edit system services dhcp pool][edit system services dhcp static-binding]

The domain-search statement sets the order in which clients append domain names when searching for the IP address of a host. You can include one or more domain names in the list. For more information, see RFC 3397, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Domain Search Option.

The domain-search statement is optional, if you do not configure a domain search list, the default is the client’s current domain.
