forward-only (DHCP Relay Agent Option)


Hierarchy Level


Forward specified DHCP client packets, without creating a new subscriber session, when you use DHCP relay selective processing feature. You can configure the forwarding operation globally or for a group of interfaces, and for either DHCP or DHCPv6 relay agent.


DHCP packets forwarded with the forward-only statement do not consider other configurations except for the trust-option-82 option. The DHCP relay agent ignores all other configured options.
