dhcpServerClientIDBehavior

testvar version 10.7

Value Type

keyword-list

Accepted Values

rfc2131 | rfc6842

Default Value

rfc6842

Description

This option determines whether CDRouter’s DHCP server includes a client identifier option in DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages. RFC 2131 specified that DHCP servers must not include the client identifier option in DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK or DHCPNAK messages. RFC 6842, which updated RFC 2131, reversed this requirement making it mandatory to include the client identifier option in such messages.

If this option is set to rfc6842, CDRouter’s DHCP server will follow the newer behavior and include the client identifier option in DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages. If this option is set to rfc2131, CDRouter’s DHCP server will preserve the original behavior and not include the client identifier option in DHCPOFFER, DHCPACK and DHCPNAK messages.

This option is also used to indicate how the DUT’s DHCP server on the LAN behaves with respect to the client identifier option. If this option is set to rfc2131, the LAN side cdrouter_dhcp_server_620 test will be skipped automatically.
