The DHCP service is disabled by default. After you complete the DHCP configuration, you can start DHCP service on a member. To enable the member to provide DHCPv6 service as well, you must start the DHCP service and then enable the DHCPv6 service on the member. In addition, you must specify the DHCP Unique Identifier (DUID) of the member. IPv6 clients use DUIDs to identify the source of the DHCP messages from servers.
To start DHCP service on a member:

  1. From the Data Management tab, select the DHCP tab -> Members tab -> -> Members -> member check box.
  2. Expand the Toolbar and click Start.
  3. In the Start Member DHCP Service dialog box, click Yes.
  4. Grid Manager starts DHCP on the selected member.

You can stop DHCP service on a member by selecting the member check box and click Stop from the Toolbar. This will stop DHCP service enabled on the LAN port.
To stop DHCP service enabled on the LAN2 port:

  1. From the Data Management tab, select the DHCP tab -> Members tab -> Members -> member check box.
  2. Click the Edit icon.
  3. In the Member DHCP Properties editor, select the General Basic tab.
  4. Clear the check box for LAN2 under DHCP interfaces.
  5. Save the configuration.

To enable DHCPv6 service on the member:

  1. From the Data Management tab, select the DHCP tab -> Members tab -> member check box.
  2. In the Member DHCP Properties editor, select the General Basic tab.
  3. In the IPv6 Properties section, do the following:
    • Server DUID: Enter the DUID of the member.
    • Enable DHCPv6 Service: Select this check box.
  4. Save the configuration.
