Administering eG Manager to work with DHCP server

To manage the DHCP server, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. If a DHCP server is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the components - manage/unmanage page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage). However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the DHCP server manually using the components page (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Discovered components, however, are managed using the components - manage/unmanage page. Figure 9 and Figure 10 clearly illustrate the process of managing a DHCP server.
