Hierarchy Level

  • For platforms with Enhanced Layer 2 Software (ELS):

  • For MX Series platforms:


Configure the circuit-id suboption (suboption 1) of DHCP option 82 (the DHCP relay agent information option) in DHCP packets destined for a DHCP server. This suboption identifies the circuit (the interface, the VLAN, or both) on which the DHCP request arrived.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.


If DHCP option 82 is enabled on the switch, the circuit ID is supplied by default in the format interface-name:vlan-name or, on a Layer 3 interface, just interface-name.


When you configure circuit-id, remote-id is also enabled, even if you do not explicitly configure remote-id .
