DHCP Server Options Clarification

Is setting custom DNS nameservers the same as using either DHCP option 5 or 6? If either is the same, which one and which method would be preferred?Switch L3 - Meraki Dashboard.png

Kind of a big deal

Re: DHCP Server Options Clarification

No one should be using option 5 these days (that was for IEN 116 name servers that pre-date DNS servers).

 

Using the "DNS name servers" is the same as setting DHCP option 6.
