Configuring Dynamic Reconfiguration Attempts for DHCP Clients

You can configure how many attempts the local server makes to initiate reconfiguration of the DHCP client by sending forcerenew messages. You can also specify how long the server waits between attempts. By default, eight attempts are made and the initial interval is two seconds.

(Optional) To configure DHCP local server reconfiguration behavior for all DHCP clients:

  1. Specify the number of reconfiguration attempts.
    [edit system services dhcp-local-server reconfigure]user@host# set attempts 5
  2. Specify the interval between reconfiguration attempts.
    [edit system services dhcp-local-server reconfigure]user@host# set timeout 8

To override the global configuration for a particular group of clients, include the statements at the [edit system services dhcp-local-server group group-name reconfigure] hierarchy level.
