      Table 1-123  Parameters for configuring a DHCP global address pool

      Parameter

      Description

      DHCP status

      Whether to enable the DHCP function globally.

      Address pool type

      DHCP address pool type (global address pool/interface address pool)

      Address pool name

      Name of the global address pool. The name is a string of 1 to 64 characters, including only numbers, letters, dots (.), hyphens (-), and underscores (_). A single hyphen (-) or multiple hyphens (--) alone cannot be used as an address pool name.

      Subnet address

      Available network segment addresses in a global address pool.

      Subnet mask

      Subnet mask of the IP address assigned to the DHCP client; namely, the subnet mask of the current interface. The gateway IP address and subnet mask together identify the range of an interface address pool.

      Vendor-defined

      User-defined option for the global IP pool. The options are as follows:
      • none: The user-defined option is not configured for the interface IP pool.
      • hex: Specifies the user-defined option code as a hexadecimal number.
      • sub-option: Specifies the value of the user-defined sub-options and configures the parameter of the sub-options.
        • ascii: Specifies the user-defined option code as an ASCII character string.
        • hex: Specifies the user-defined option code as a hexadecimal number.
        • ip-address: Specifies the user-defined option code as an IP address. One to eight IP addresses can be specified.

      Gateway IP

      Egress gateway IP address in a global address pool.

      • To add a gateway IP address, enter a gateway IP address and click . You can repeat this operation to add a maximum of eight gateway IP addresses.
      • To delete a gateway IP address, select a gateway IP address and click .

      Address pool interface

      Interface that can use addresses in the address pool. Users going online through this interface can obtain configuration information, such as IP addresses, from the global address pool.

      • To add an interface, select an interface and click . To add multiple interfaces, repeat this operation.
      • To delete an interface, select an interface and click .

      Not allocated IP

      IP address that will not be dynamically allocated to clients. When IP addresses are assigned to other servers such as DNS servers, the IP addresses cannot be assigned to DHCP clients. Specify these IP addresses as forbidden IP addresses. This operation avoids IP address conflicts and shortens the IP address detection time during IP address assignment, which improves DHCP efficiency. Perform the following operations to add or delete forbidden IP addresses:
      • Adding forbidden IP addresses: Set the start and end IP addresses and click . To add multiple forbidden IP addresses or IP address segments, repeat this operation.
      • Deleting forbidden IP addresses: Select the check boxes of forbidden IP addresses or select the check box next to Forbidden IP, and click .

        • ascii: Specifies the user-defined option code as an ASCII character string.
        • hex: Specifies the user-defined option code as a hexadecimal number.
        • ip-address: Specifies the user-defined option code as an IP address. One to eight IP addresses can be specified.

      Not allocated IP

      IP address that will not be dynamically allocated to clients. When IP addresses are assigned to other servers such as DNS servers, the IP addresses cannot be assigned to DHCP clients.
