To assign a scope-based option

  1. Open DHCP.

  2. In the console tree, click Scope Options.

  3. On the Action menu, click Configure Options.

  4. In the list of available options, select the check box for the first option you want to configure.

  5. Under Data entry, type the information required for this option.

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for any other server options you want to specify, and then click OK.

    Options assigned at this level are only provided to clients identified as members of the classes specified on this tab.
