After defining match class values, you may assign a DHCP deployment role to the match class directly, although this is not necessary.

If any network or network object (such as an IP address or DHCP range) in the same Address Manager configuration as the match class refers to that match class, the match class will be deployed automatically. If you assign a DHCP deployment role to the match class, then it will be deployed whether or not any other object refers to it.

To assign a DHCP deployment role to a match class:

  1. From the configuration drop-down menu, select a configuration.
  2. 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.
  3. Click the DHCP Settings tab.
  4. Under DHCP Match Classes, click a match class.
  5. Click the Deployment Roles tab.
  6. Under Deployment Roles, click New and select DHCP Role.
  7. Under Role, select a DHCP deployment role from the Type drop-down menu: None or Master.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Under Change Control, add comments, if required.
  11. Click Add or click Add Next.
