DHCP Option 82 on Stacked EtherSwitch Modules


DHCP Option 82 on Stacked EtherSwitch Modules


This feature introduces support for DHCP relay agent information option (option 82) on stacked EtherSwitch network modules. This functionality is also available on standalone EtherSwitch network modules.

Automatic DHCP address allocation is typically based on an IP address, either the gateway IP address or the incoming interface IP address. In some networks, it is necessary to use additional information to further determine which IP addresses to allocate. By using the relay agent information option (option 82), the Cisco IOS relay agent can include additional information about itself when forwarding client-originated DHCP packets to a DHCP server.
