Need help with Extended DHCP option 119 - domain-search


#1

Hi there,

Using balance one with firmware 6.2.1.
Configured Extended DHCP Option 119 with type string and value “mydomain1.com mydomain2.com

dhclient returns: Expecting a domain string. option domain-search ;

Is that the right way to specify it, any idea what is wrong?

Thank you.

Hello,

I believe if your defining more then 1 domain you will have to use a “;” to separate them.

mydomain1.com;mydomain2.com

Thank you Jarid,

Your suggestion does not work, still same problem (even with single domain name).

Hi modiam,

Please try DHCP Option 119 with Type Byte and Hex value. 2 articles below are very helpful to setup DHCP Option 119.
