8.3.0

Greatly reduced DHCP deployment times and DHCP downtime.

In previous releases, DHCP service stop and restart every time you would deploy DHCPv4 and DHCPv6, resulting in service outages. With streamlined DHCP, you can benefit from drastically reduced deployment times* and near-zero-downtime DHCP**, which greatly reduces the duration of service interruptions you may have previously encountered when restarting DHCP service. No additional configurations or options are necessary. Customers can modify their DHCP configuration and deploy as they would normally and Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server will take care of the rest.
Note: *The duration of DHCP deployment depends on the size of your DHCP configuration.

**There are no DHCP service interruptions during DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 deployments (that is, deployments involving DHCP ranges and deployment options).
