Using automatic configuration update with DHCP Option 66


To use automatic configuration update with DHCP Option 66, you must do the following:

  • Enable one or more DHCP servers with Option 66.

  • Insure that one or more TFTP servers have the desired configuration file.

  • Insure that the configuration files to be updated were generated on the switch.

  • Enable the configuration file to update with Option 66, as described in Enabling and disabling the configuration file update using Option 66.

Aruba switches are initially booted up with the factory-shipped configuration file. The automatic configuration update provides a way to automatically download a different configuration file from a TFTP server using DHCP Option 66.
