You can define the Hardware Operator option and add it as a match rule to an option filter. This option enables BloxOne DDI to match the hardware type and MAC address of the DHCP client, which it derives from the hardware type, hlen (hardware length) and chaddr (client hardware address) fields of the client’s DHCP Discover and Renew packets.

To define an IPv4 hardware filter:

  1. From the Cloud Services Portal, click Manage -> IPAM/DHCP ->  IPv4 Filters -> Create, and select IPv4 Hardware Filter from the drop-down list.

  2. On the Create IPv4 Hardware Filter page, specify the following:

    • Name: Enter a meaningful name for the hardware filter.

    • Description: Enter additional information about the filter.

    • Tags: For information about tags, see Managing Tags.

    • In the MAC addresses panel, click Add to add a Mac address to the list or click Remove to delete the entry:
      • MAC ADDRESS: Select this option to assign an IP address from the address range to a requesting host whose MAC address matches the MAC address in the filter.
    • In the DHCP Configuration panel, click Add to add a DHCP option space or an option group to the list or click Remove to delete the entry:

      • Type: Select Option or Option Group based on what you want to add to the list.

      • Space: Select a value from the drop-down list. The list displays either option spaces or option groups based on the Type you select.

      • Name: Select a value from the drop-down list. The list displays names of the option spaces or option groups based on the Space you select.

      • Option Type: Displays the option type.

      • Value: Enter the match value that you want the filter to use for the selected DHCP option. To add more options to the filter, click Add and repeat the steps.

  3. Click Save & Close to save the details or click Cancel to exit.
