dhcp dynamic bootfile response based on client

hi,

i have following scenario on a router:

ip dhcp pool VOB

vrf VOB

network 10.255.150.0 255.255.255.248

next-server 10.1.1.1

bootfile xx/xx/mac

default-router 10.255.150.1

domain-name xx.xx

is it possible to response the dhcp client with the bootfile dynamically based on the mac like in this example?

or if not the eem any other suggestions?

thanks

chris

Re: dhcp dynamic bootfile response based on client

I've not done it, but I know you can create an assigned address from the DHCP server for each machine requesting based on the MAC. Perhaps you could put the bootfile configuration in the section for each MAC.

I was thinking along the lines of Jeff.  There is no DHCP event detector for EEM.  And any auto-configuration you might do based on a timer, might introduce a race condition if you have multiple clients requesting addresses at once.

hi both,

thanks for responding.

joseph: yes, i am looking for an "generic" configuration to avoid touching every time the dhcp sequence

when the client is an other one... - i supposed there is an possible "variable" option for putting the

mac "as" variable in the bootstring and the server identifys and responses the "real string" os option back.

so it looks there is currently no such method?

thanks!

No.  I found some similar requests internally, but it doesn't look like variables within the bootfile name is possible.
