Hi Med, Leaf,

I fully understand the requirement for network automation versus manual
configuration, but I still don’t think defining a new dhcp option is the
right direction to go in order to do routes aggregations in a router.

As somebody else already pointed out here, if you need a way to
automatically interact with the router i2rs is the right place to discuss
your requirements.

In addition you said:

Ø  I confirm this option is not a per-customer configuration parameter.

 If it is not a per-client configuration why  would you like to use DHCP
for that?

I understand that in DHCP Server there are already some global parameters
like the pool of addresses to be used for the clients, but my understanding
of DHCP behavior , and please correct me if I’m wrong, is that the DHCP
Server provides a per-client configuration.

How would it work with this new option? How does the DHCP Server know if it
has to add or not this option if it is not based on client profile or on
client request?

Do you plan to insert the option in all  the DHCP Server replies/to all
clients?

I assume the router is going to install the route once and what does it do
if it gets the same routes more the one? Just ignore? It seems like a waste
of cycles on the router.

In my opinion having global parameters on DHCP Server seems  a major change
in the DHCP model.

Thanks

Roberta
