When a DHCP object has an inherited value from a specific source, BloxOne DDI displays the value on the Cloud Services Portal. It also displays Inherited From <object> (where <object> can be the server, the address block, or the DHCP address range) to indicate the source from which the value is inherited.
For example, when you set the Global DHCP Properties object and do not override the properties at any level lower on the hierarchy chain, all child objects will inherit the properties from the Global DHCP Properties level. BloxOne DDI displays the property values as Inherited from Global DHCP Properties for each configured DHCP property.
Single Inheritance Criteria
Subnets and ranges can have a single DHCP server associated with them (through assignment).
When a single DHCP server is associated and the settings have been saved, the DHCP configuration for that object will only show inheritance for the associated server.
Only the available, assigned server is shown as inherited. The server in the list comes from the objects table in the same order listed in the table.
If the hostname is not available, the host IP Address is displayed instead.
Any changes made to the inheritable settings apply to all objects across all associated DHCP servers.
Single Inheritance Scenario
In a scenario where the DHCP Config Profile is assigned to one or more on-prem hosts, all properties in the configuration retain their default inherited values, with no overriding of object properties. In this scenario, inheritance is obtained from the DHCP Server, which in the hierarchical inheritance chain functions as the parent because it is located at the top of the inheritance chain with all objects below it being child objects.
