2008 R2 DHCP creating a new option

    Question

  • So in Windows server 2003, if I needed a specific scope option that was not included in the available options, I could hit the "add" button in the predefined options and create a new option. 

    It seems that in 2008 R2 I do not have this ability.  I need to create Option 150 (Cisco IP phone thing) and for the life of me cannot figure that out.

    At best, it looks like I could go the long route of using the Server Migration Tools, which from other articles I read will create all of the options I have defined in my 2k3 DHCP server. 

    Anyone had some experience in creating the option instead of having to migrate (export/import)?

    Thanks,

    James

  • Thanks Santhosh.  The problem turned out to be that you need to click on the IPv4 server icon, NOT the server name iteself, as the article infers.

  • Yes. That is correct. You need to select IPV4 icon.
