To show DHCP class ID information at a client computer

  1. At a DHCP-enabled client computer running Windows XP or Windows 2000, open a Command Prompt.

  2. Use the Ipconfig command-line utility to show the DHCP class ID that the client uses when obtaining its lease from the DHCP server.

    You can type the ipconfig /showclassid command as demonstrated in the following example command. This example shows an ASCII string ("MyNewClassId") that is currently set as the DHCP class ID for the local area network connection at the client computer:

C:\>ipconfig /showclassid "Local Area Connection"

Notes

  • To open a command prompt, click Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

  • For a DHCP options class to be in effect between the DHCP server and its clients, both must be configured with a matching DHCP class ID string that identifies the client as a member of a specific user or vendor options class when it obtains its address lease from the server.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
