DHCP Options

The following topics provide descriptions of all predefined options available for use with the Microsoft® Windows® 2000 DHCP service. These options are defined according to the updated standards reference for DHCP options (RFC 2132, DHCP Options and BOOTP Vendor Extensions ).

You can use the Properties dialog boxes in DHCP Manager to configure each DHCP option for specific values and then enable it for assignment and distribution to DHCP clients based on server, scope, class, or client-specific levels of preference.
