Brocade DHCP on 7450 Switch

I had the need today to setup DHCP on a Brocade 7450 Switch. I had never done this before, but very straight forward. Thought I would document how to/options if anyone ever needs it.

DHCP pool to create – TX-POOL, scope 192.168.6.0/24

config t

ip dhcp-server pool TX-POOL
dhcp-default-router 192.168.6.1
dns-server 192.168.1.183
excluded-address 192.168.6.1 192.168.6.10
lease 1 0 0
network 192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0
deploy

Notice the “Deploy” option – this puts everything into motion. Lots more options available like Domain-name, Options, lease times, etc.

To make sure everything is working you have some great show commands:
