When configuring DHCP option 33 with the DNS/DHCP Management Console, the dialog requests a netmask, not the IP address of the routing host.  If configured with the IP address of the routing host, the error, "Invalid Subnet Mask" is reported.


Use iManager to configure this option.

Additional Information

According to RFC 2132, the netmask is irrelevant, as the required parameters are: the option code, the length, and the address pair.

This has been reported to engineering.
