A DHCP profile specifies a DHCP server type and configuration. You can use the default profile or create others as needed.
A DHCP profile can be used by multiple segments and gateways in your network. You can create DHCP server profiles and DHCP relay profiles. See Add a DHCP Profile in the NSX-T Data Center Administration Guide.

- For a DHCP Server, specify an IPv4 Server IP Address and optionally change the Lease Time.
- For a DHCP Relay, specify the Server IP Address as the address of your on-premises DHCP server. Be sure that your on-premises firewall allows DHCP traffic (ports 67 and 68) to reach this address. Lease time is controlled by the on-premises server configuration.
- Click SAVE to create the profile.
The new profile is available for use when you specify the DHCP configuration of a routed segment. See Create or Modify a Network Segment. The Where Used column lists segments that specify this profile.
