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 to configure DHCP servers of DHCP relay servers anywhere in your SDDC network. See Add a DHCP Profile in the NSX-T Data Center Administration Guide.
- Log in to the VMware Cloud Console at https://vmc.vmware.com.
- Select .
- Click ADD DHCP PROFILE and give the profile a Name.
Choose a Profile Type and provide the required configuration parameters.
- 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 the target DHCP server. If the target DHCP server is on-premises, be sure that your on-premises firewall allows DHCP traffic (ports 67 and 68) to reach this address. Lease time is controlled by the target 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.
