Match classes in Address Manager (also known as classes in ISC DHCP and as user and vendor classes in Microsoft DHCP) allow you to restrict address allocation and assign options to clients that match specified criteria.

For example, using a match class, you could assign a specific DHCP lease length to clients that match a MAC address pattern or clients that are configured to send a specific identifier. A DHCP client becomes a member of a class when it matches the specified criteria.

Address Manager provides the following seven match criteria values:
  • MATCH_HARDWARE
  • MATCH_DHCP_CLIENT_ID
  • MATCH_DHCP_VENDOR_ID
  • MATCH_AGENT_CIRCUIT_ID
  • MATCH_AGENT_REMOTE_ID
  • CUSTOM_MATCH
  • CUSTOM_MATCH_IF
