Method to configure DHCP on S series switches

For S series switches excluding the S1700, the switch can both function as the DHCP server to assign IP addresses to clients and function as a DHCP client to dynamically obtain an IP address from the DHCP server. When the DHCP client and DHCP server are located on different network segments, the switch can also function as the DHCP relay agent to assist DHCP server in allocating IP addresses to clients. In addition, the switch can be configured with DHCP snooping to defend against DHCP attacks.
