DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 raw options allow you to add DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 deployment options that Address Manager does not directly support.

A raw option is passed to the DHCP services on the managed server exactly as you type it in the rawData parameter. Therefore, it's essential that you enter the data with the correct syntax. There is no error checking or data checking on the raw option. In the event of a syntax error in a DHCP raw option, DHCP service will stop and then roll back to the previous DHCP configuration, resulting in a service outage.

Raw options are not inherited between levels. You cannot set them at the configuration or IP block level because options set at these levels would not be inherited below. You can set them at the following levels:
  • For DHCPv4 raw options:
    • Server
    • Server group
    • IPv4 network
    • IPv4 network template
    • IPv4 DHCP range
    • DHCP match class
    • DHCP match class value
    • MacAddress
    • MacPool
    • IPv4 DHCP reserved address
  • For DHCPv6 raw options:
    • Server
    • Server group
    • IPv6 network
    • IPv6 DHCP reserved address
API method: POST /v1/addRawDeploymentOption to add a raw deployment option.

PUT /v1/updateRawDeploymentOption to update a raw deployment option.

Note: GET /v1/getDeploymentOptions can also be used as a generic method for retrieving deployment options.
