delimiter (DHCP Relay Agent)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the character used as the delimiter between the concatenated components of the username. Use the statement at the [edit ... dhcpv6] hierarchy levels to configure DHCPv6 support.


delimiter-character—Character that separates components that make up the concatenated username. You cannot use the semicolon (;) as a delimiter.

  • Default: . (period)


When you include the interface-description in the username, the delimiter must not be a character that is part of the interface description. For example, if the text description is configured as “Backbone connection/PHL01”, you cannot use the forward slash (/) as the delimiter.
