Hierarchy Level


Configure the match criteria when you use the DHCP vendor class identifier option (option 60) in DHCP client packets to forward client traffic to specific DHCP servers. The extended DHCP relay agent compares the option 60 vendor-specific strings received in DHCP client packets against the match criteria that you specify. If there is a match, you can define certain actions for the associated DHCP client packets.


The vendor-option statement has been deprecated and might be removed from future product releases. We recommend that you phase out its use. See option-number.
