DESCRIPTION

dhtadm manages the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service configuration table, dhcptab. You can use it to add, delete, or modify DHCP configuration macros or options or view the table. For a description of the table format, see dhcptab(4).) The dhtadm command can be run by root, or by other users assigned to the DHCP Management profile. See rbac(5) and user_attr(4). SunOS 5.8 Last change: 13 Mar 2001 1 Maintenance Commands dhtadm(1M) After you make changes with dhtadm, you should issue a SIGHUP to the DHCP server, causing it to read the dhcptab and pick up the changes. Do this using the command using the pkill -HUP in.dhcpd command. See in.dhcpd(1M).

OPTIONS

One of the following function flags must be specified with the dhtadm command: -A, -B, -C, -D, -M, -P or -R. The following options are supported: -A Add a symbol or macro definition to the dhcptab table. The following sub-options are required: -d definition Specify a macro or symbol definition. definition must be enclosed in single quotation marks. For macros, use the form -d 'symbol=value:symbol=value:'. For symbols, the definition is a series of fields that define a symbol's characteristics. The fields are separated by commas. Use the form -d 'context,code,type,granularity,maximum'. See dhcptab(4) for information about these fields. -m macro_name Specify the name of the macro to be added. The -d option must be used with the -m option. The -s option cannot be used with the -m option. -s symbol_name Specify the name of the symbol to be added. The -d option must be used with the -s option. The -m option cannot be used with the -s option. -B Batch process dhtadm commands. dhtadm will read from the specified file or from standard input a series of dhtadm commands and execute them within the same pro- cess. Processing many dhtadm commands using this method is much faster than running an executable batchfile itself. Batch mode is recommended for using dhtadm in scripts. The following sub-option is optional: -v Display commands to standard output as they are processed. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 13 Mar 2001 2 Maintenance Commands dhtadm(1M) -C Create the DHCP service configuration table, dhcptab. -D Delete a symbol or macro definition. The following sub-options are required: -m macro_name Delete the specified macro. -s symbol_name Delete the specified symbol. -M Modify an existing symbol or macro definition. The following sub-options are required: -d definition Specify a macro or symbol definition to modify. The definition must be enclosed in single quota- tion marks. For macros, use the form -d 'symbol=value:symbol=value:'. For symbols, the definition is a series of fields that define a symbol's characteristics. The fields are separated by commas. Use the form -d 'context,code,type,granularity,maximum'. See dhcptab(4) for information about these fields. -e This sub-option uses the symbol =value argument. Use it to edit a symbol/value pair within a macro. To add a symbol which does not have an associate value, enter: symbol=NULL_VALUE_ To delete a symbol definition from a macro, enter: symbol= -m This sub-option uses the macro_name argument. The -n, -d, or -e sub-options are legal compan- ions for this sub-option.. -n This sub-option uses the new_name argument and modifies the name of the object specified by the SunOS 5.8 Last change: 13 Mar 2001 3 Maintenance Commands dhtadm(1M) -m or -s sub-option. It is not limited to mac- ros. . Use it to specify a new macro name or symbol name. -s This sub-option uses the symbol_name argument. Use it to specify a symbol. The -d sub-option is a legal companion. -p path Override the dhcpsvc.conf(4) configuration value for PATH= with path. See dhcpsvc.conf(4) for more details regarding path. See dhcp_modules(5) for information regarding data storage modules for the DHCP service. -P Print (display) the dhcptab table. -r data_store_resource Override the dhcpsvc.conf(4) configuration value for RESOURCE= with the data_store_resource specified. See dhcpsvc.conf(4) for more details on resource type. SeeSolaris DHCP Service Developer's Guide for more information about adding support for other data stores. See dhcp_modules(5) for information regarding data storage modules for the DHCP service. -R Remove the dhcptab table. -u uninterpreted Data which will be ignored by dhtadm, but passed to currently configured public module, to be interpreted by the data store. This might be used for a database account name or other authentication or authorization parameters required by a particular data store. Unin- terpreted data is stored within RESOURCE_CONFIG key- word of dhcpsvc.conf(4). See dhcp_modules(5) for information regarding data storage modules for the DHCP service.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Creating the DHCP Service Configuration Table The following command creates the DHCP service configuration table, dhcptab: # dhtadm -C Example 2: Adding a Symbol Definition The following command adds a Vendor option symbol definition for a new symbol called MySym to the dhcptab table in the SUNWfiles resource in the /var/mydhcp directory: SunOS 5.8 Last change: 13 Mar 2001 4 Maintenance Commands dhtadm(1M) # dhtadm -A -s MySym -d 'Vendor=SUNW.PCW.LAN,20,IP,1,0' -r SUNWfiles -p /var/mydhcp Example 3: Adding a Macro Definition The following command adds the aruba macro definition to the dhcptab table. Note that symbol/value pairs are bracketed with colons (:). # dhtadm -A -m aruba -d ':Timeserv=10.0.0.10 10.0.0.11:DNSserv=10.0.0.1:' Example 4: Modifying a Macro Definition The following command modifies the Locale macro definition, setting the value of the UTCOffst symbol to 18000 seconds. Note that any macro definition which includes the definition of the Locale macro will inherit this change. # dhtadm -M -m Locale -e 'UTCOffst=18000' Example 5: Deleting a Symbol The following command deletes the Timeserv symbol from the aruba macro. Note that any macro definition which includes the definition of the aruba macro will inherit this change. # dhtadm -M -m aruba -e 'Timeserv=' Example 6: Adding a Symbol to a Macro The following command adds the Hostname symbol to the aruba macro. Note that the Hostname symbol takes no value, and thus requires the special value _NULL_VALUE_. Note also that any macro definition which includes the definition of the aruba macro will inherit this change. # dhtadm -M -m aruba -e 'Hostname=_NULL_VALUE_' Example 7: Renaming a Macro The following command renames the Locale macro to MyLocale. Note that any Include statements in macro definitions which include the Locale macro will also need to be changed. # dhtadm -M -m Locale -n MyLocale Example 8: Deleting a Symbol Definition The following command deletes the MySym symbol definition. Note that any macro definitions which use MySym will need to SunOS 5.8 Last change: 13 Mar 2001 5 Maintenance Commands dhtadm(1M) be modified. # dhtadm -D -s MySym Example 9: Removing a dhcptab The following command removes the dhcptab table in the NIS+ directory specified. # dhtadm -R -r SUNWnisplus -p Test.Nis.Plus. Example 10: Printing a dhcptab The following command prints to standard output the contents of the dhcptab that is located in the data store and path indicated in the dhcpsvc.conf file:. # dhtadm -P Example 11: Executing dhtadm in Batch Mode The following command runs a series of dhtadm commands con- tained in a batch file: # dhtadm -B addmacros
