Modify an Option

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can use this procedure to modify an option.

Membership in the Domain Admins group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

To modify an option

  1. Open DHCP.

  2. In the console tree, click the applicable DHCP server.

  3. On the Action menu, click Set Predefined Options.

  4. In Predefined Options and Values, select the following:

    • For Option class, select the class where the option to be modified is used.

    • For Option name, scroll to select the option you want to modify.

  5. Click Edit.

  6. Modify the Name and Description fields for the option as needed.

Additional considerations

By default, standard DHCP options and BOOTP extensions as described in RFC 2132 are predefined for use at DHCP servers running Windows ServerĀ 2008.

For options already defined, only the Name and Description fields can be modified using this procedure. To change other fields (such as Data type, Code, or the applicable class where the option is used), the existing option must be removed and a new option defined.
