You can use this procedure to assign an advanced (class-based) option.

Membership in the Domain Admins group, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. Open DHCP.

  2. In the console tree, choose one:

    • Click Server Options to assign advanced options for use by all new scopes at the DHCP server.

    • Click Scope Options to assign advanced options for use by a specific scope at the DHCP server.

  3. Right-click the folder, and then click Configure Options.

  4. Click the Advanced tab.

  5. Select from the following:

    • For Vendor class, scroll to select the defined vendor class at the DHCP server (or use the default, DHCP Standard Options) for assigning options for the server or scope.

    • For User class, scroll to select the defined user class at the DHCP server (or use the default, Default User Class) for assigning options for the server or scope.

  6. In the list of available options, select the check box for the first option you want to configure.

  7. Under Data entry, type the information required for this option.

  8. Repeat the two previous steps for any other options you want to specify, and then click OK.

If a class-based option is assigned, it applies only to DHCP clients that are identified as members of the specified user or vendor class.
