default-action (DHCP Relay Agent Option)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the action DHCP relay agent takes when the option string in client traffic does not satisfy any match criteria or when no match criteria are configured.

The default-action statement is optional. If the match criteria are not satisfied or not configured and no default-action is specified, DHCP relay processes the traffic in the normal manner.

The local-server-group option is not supported for DHCPv6 relay agent.

The remaining statements are explained separately. Search for a statement in CLI Explorer or click a linked statement in the Syntax section for details.
