Hello All,

has anyone successfully used the IOS DHCP Server to return option 67 (i.e. filename) to DHCP clients?

Trying to enable this, returns "% DHCP does not allow raw option 67" ??!!?

Would appreciate any comments/suggestions/references in this regard.

Many Thanks in advance.

This option is used to identify a bootfile when the 'file' field in the DHCP header has been used for DHCP options.

The code for this option is 67, and its minimum length is 1.


Hostname(dhcp-config)#bootfile [path_string] -->path to the boot file
