DHCP Policy for Android phones - New Vendor Class creation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are trying to configure a DHCP policy so that the least time for Android phones can be configured separately.

    We were following this article https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn425038%28v=ws.11%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396.

    However we were having trouble to add Android phones as a New Vendor Class.  We have done some research but could not find information on the Binary and ASCii values for the New Class for Android phones.

    HAs anybody done this before?  Can you please provide some information on how to get the Binary and ASCii values for the Andriod Vendor class?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Regards

    Winnie

    >>Can you please provide some information on how to get the Binary and ASCii values for the Andriod Vendor class?

    As far as I know , you should contact the Android Vendor to know how to switch the unit to use ASCII.

    And then the corresponding ID and Binary values will be automatically added.

    For example,Polycom vendor will reply costumer to use Polycom-SSIP6000 as the Vendor Class ID.

  • Hi Candy,

    Thanks for your reply.

    We were not able to find information regarding the Vendor ID configuration for Andriod, hence we posted the question here.

    Would you be able to provide some direction on where to find this info or if you have assisted other customer with simliar configuration that could share with us?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

  • Hi Winnie,

    When using this option, vendors can define their own specific identifier values, such as to convey a particular hardware or operating system configuration or other identifying information.

    For your reference:

    DHCP Vendor Class Polycom Phones

    https://windowsserveressentials.com/2017/02/15/dhcp-vendor-class-polycom-phones/

    Since we are not familiar with Android phone, I would suggest you contact the Android phone to get the  Vendor ID.

    May be the following link will be helpful:
