dhcpsvc.conf(4) 			   File Formats 			  dhcpsvc.conf(4)

NAME
       dhcpsvc.conf - file containing service configuration parameters for the DHCP service

DESCRIPTION
       The  dhcpsvc.conf file resides in directory /etc/inet and contains parameters for specify-
       ing Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service configuration  settings,	including
       the type and location of DHCP data store used.

       The  description of the dhcpsvc.conf file in this man page is informational only. The pre-
       ferred method of setting or modifying values within the	dhcpsvc.conf  file  is	by  using
       dhcpconfig(1M) or the dhcpmgr(1M) utility. Do not edit the dhcpsvc.conf file.

       The dhcpsvc.conf file format is ASCII; comment lines begin with the crosshatch (#) charac-
       ter. Parameters consist of a keyword followed by an equals (=) sign followed by the param-
       eter value, of the form:

	 Keyword=Value

       The following Keyword and Value parameters are supported:

       BOOTP_COMPAT		   String. automatic or manual. Enables support of BOOTP clients.
				   Default is no BOOTP. Value selects  BOOTP  address  allocation
				   method. automatic to support all BOOTP clients, manual to sup-
				   port only registered BOOTP clients. server mode  only  parame-
				   ter.

       CACHE_TIMEOUT		   Integer.  Number  of  seconds the server caches data from data
				   store. Used to improve performance.	Default  is  10  seconds.
				   server mode only parameter.

       CONVER			   Integer.  Container version. Used by DHCP administrative tools
				   to identify which version of the public module is  being  used
				   to  administer  the	data  store. CONVER should not be changed
				   manually.

       DAEMON_ENABLED		   TRUE/FALSE. If TRUE, the DHCP daemon can  be  run.  If  FALSE,
				   DHCP  daemon  process  exits  immediately  if  the  daemon  is
				   started. Default is TRUE. Generic parameter.

       HOSTS_DOMAIN		   String. Defines name service domain that  DHCP  administration
				   tools  use  when  managing  the  hosts  table. Valid only when
				   HOSTS_RESOURCE is set to nisplus or dns.

       HOSTS_RESOURCE		   String. Defines what name service resource should be  used  by
				   the	DHCP  administration tools when managing the hosts table.
				   Current valid values are files, nisplus, and dns.

       ICMP_VERIFY		   TRUE/FALSE. Toggles ICMP echo verification  of  IP  addresses.
				   Default is TRUE. server mode only parameter.

       INTERFACES		   String.  Comma-separated list of interface names to listen to.
				   Generic parameter.

       LOGGING_FACILITY 	   Integer. Local facility number (0-7	inclusive)  to	log  DHCP
				   events to. Default is not to log transactions. Generic parame-
				   ter.

       OFFER_CACHE_TIMEOUT	   Integer. Number of seconds before OFFER cache timeouts  occur.
				   Default is 10 seconds. server mode only parameter.

       OWNER_IP 		   String. List of supplemental ownership addresses  that will be
				   used by  the  DHCP  server  in  determining	the  dhcp_network
				   records  that  are  under its management. Addresses are in the
				   dotted Internet form of an IPv4 address. Primary value is  the
				   IP  address	associated  with  the  system's primary interface
				   (nodename == hostname). Server-mode-only parameter. Note  that
				   using OWNER_IP has some performance impact, thus using a large
				   number might not be advisable.

       PATH			   Path to DHCP data tables within the data  store  specified  by
				   the	RESOURCE parameter. The value of the PATH keyword is spe-
				   cific to the RESOURCE.

       RELAY_DESTINATIONS	   String. Comma-separated list of host names and/or IP addresses
				   of relay destinations. relay mode only parameter.

       RELAY_HOPS		   Integer.  Max  number  of  BOOTP  relay  hops before packet is
				   dropped. Default is 4. Generic parameter.

       RESCAN_INTERVAL		   Integer. Number of minutes between automatic dhcptab  rescans.
				   Default is not to do rescans. server mode only parameter.

       RESOURCE 		   Data  store resource used. Use this parameter to name the pub-
				   lic module. See the PATH keyword in dhcp_modules(5).

       RESOURCE_CONFIG		   String. The private layer provides for module-specific config-
				   uration  information  through  the  use of the RESOURCE_CONFIG
				   keyword. See dhcp_modules(5).

				   Providers can access RESOURCE_CONFIG using the configure func-
				   tion  by  specifying  an  optional  service provider layer API
				   function:

				     int configure(const char *configp);

				   If this function is defined by the public module provider,  it
				   is  called  during module load time by the private layer, with
				   the contents of the RESOURCE_CONFIG	string	acquired  by  the
				   administrative  interface (in the case of the dhcpmgr, through
				   the use of a public module-specific java  bean  extending  the
				   dhcpmgr  to	provide  a configuration dialog for this informa-
				   tion.

       RUN_MODE 		   server or relay. Selects daemon run mode. Default is server.

       SECONDARY_SERVER_TIMEOUT    Integer. The number of seconds a secondary server waits for	a
				   primary server to respond before responding itself. Default is
				   20 seconds. This is a server mode only parameter.

       UPDATE_TIMEOUT		   Integer. Number of seconds to wait for a response from the DNS
				   server  before  timing  out. If this parameter is present, the
				   DHCP daemon updates DNS on behalf of DHCP clients,  and  waits
				   the	number	of seconds specified for a response before timing
				   out. You can use UPDATE_TIMEOUT without specifying a number to
				   enable  DNS updates with the default timeout of 15 seconds. If
				   this parameter is not present, the DHCP daemon does not update
				   DNS for DHCP clients.

       VERBOSE			   TRUE/FALSE. Toggles verbose mode, determining amount of status
				   and error messages reported by the daemon. Default  is  FALSE.
				   Set to TRUE only for debugging. Generic parameter.
