Is it possible to add multiple domain-names in dhcp-pool config on the 6513?

In other words is this a legitimate command : domain-name abc.net,xyzoa.net,xyz.co.jp? Or is there some other way to make it work?

Noran... Thanks.

I need to know if you can set multiple domain search suffix for each DHCP pool.

Unless I missed it the document only shows one dhcpd domain - example.com. I actually tried to add another domain but it replaced the previous one.

Let me know if you figure this out. I'm trying to do the same thing.

I have been toying with this in my lab to no avail. After further research i found this:


It makes mention of option '135' which MS recognizes as domain suffix search-order, but that doesn't mean anything. I tried a couple different variations under my test dhcp pool...

option 135 ascii "\"test1.com\",\"test.com\""

option 135 ascii "test1.com,test.com"

but none of these ever get served to my client (according to wireshark). I would lean towards this being an issue with the IOS not serving statically configured options.

Per advice from another forum this can only be accomplished in a Windows environment via group policy.
