Issue Description
Netbios parameter settings on S series switch.
Solution
When S series switches (except S1700 switches) function as DHCP servers, they can deliver NetBIOS service parameters to clients through DHCP. The configuration process is as follows:

- Interface address pool:
[HUAWEI] interface vlanif 10
[HUAWEI-Vlanif10] ip address 10.10.10.1 24
[HUAWEI-Vlanif10] dhcp select interface
[HUAWEI-Vlanif10] dhcp server nbns-list 10.10.1.1 //Configure the NetBIOS server address.
[HUAWEI-Vlanif10] dhcp server netbios-type p-node //Configure the NetBIOS node type.

- Global address pool:
[HUAWEI] ip pool pool1
[HUAWEI-ip-pool-pool1] nbns-list 10.10.1.1 //Configure the NetBIOS server address.
[HUAWEI-ip-pool-pool1] netbios-type p-node //Configure the NetBIOS node type.

- Using a DHCP Option template:
[HUAWEI] dhcp option template template1
[HUAWEI-dhcp-option-template-template1] nbns-list 10.10.1.1 //Configure the NetBIOS server address.
[HUAWEI-dhcp-option-template-template1] netbios-type p-node //Configure the NetBIOS node type.
