DHCP Options

A DHCP option is an IP address configuration setting that is not already included in the fixed DHCP header. For example, there is no DHCP option for the IP address allocated to the DHCP client because that is already indicated in the Your IP Address field. There are DHCP options for lease management, such as the lease timeout values, and options for configuration settings explicitly requested by DHCP clients, such as the default gateway IP address.

The Windows Server 2008 DHCP Server service supports the standard DHCP option types defined in RFC 2131 and 2132 and vendor-specific DHCP options that you can use to provide Windows-based DHCP clients with additional configuration settings.
