Add a DHCPv4 deployment role to a network. Each network can have only a single assigned DHCP role.

DHCP roles are always set to Master or None. Roles set to None are used for DHCP services that have been designed in Address Manager, but are not yet ready to be deployed.

Note: For shared networks, each member network of the shared network must have the same type of DHCP deployment role assigned to its network object.

To add a DHCPv4 deployment role:

  1. Select the IP Space tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  2. On the IPv4 tab, select an IPv4 block.
  3. Click the Deployment Roles tab.
  4. Under Deployment Roles, click New and select DHCP Role.
  5. Under Role, select a DHCP deployment role from the Type drop-down menu: None or Master.
  6. Click Select Server Interface.
    1. Under Servers, click a server name or xHA pair.
    2. Under Server Interfaces, select the server interface and click Add. If necessary, click Up to return to the list of servers.
    The selected server interface appears in the Server Interface section and a new Failover Configuration section also appears. If necessary, click Remove to delete the server and start again. The Failover Configuration section does not appear when adding a DHCPv6 deployment role.
  7. Under Failover Configuration, click Select Secondary Server Interface to add a secondary server for failover.
    1. Under Servers, click the server name or xHA pair.
    2. Under Server Interfaces, select the server interface and click Add. If necessary, click Up to return to the list of servers.
    The selected server interface appears in the Secondary Server Interface section. If necessary, click Remove to delete the server and start again.
