Method to configure DHCP server on S series switches

For S series switches excluding the S1700, the switch can function as the DHCP server to assign IP addresses to DHCP clients. Two configuration modes are available:
- Interface address pool: This mode is simple. It only applies to scenario where the DHCP server and DHCP client are located on the same network segment, that is, there is no need to deploy the DHCP relay agent.
- Global address pool: It applies to the scenario where the DHCP server and DHCP client are located on different segments, that is, the DHCP relay agent needs to be deployed. It also applies to the scenario where the DHCP server and DHCP client are located on the same network segment and IP addresses to be assigned to clients on multiple interfaces.
