DNA Center DHCP option 60 configuration

Hello All,

I have installed a Cisco DNA Center appliance and I am wanting to use it for provisioning new switches. With the APIC-EM, there was documentation on how to configure option 60 in the DHCP scope on a DHCP server. Does anyone know where to get the scope option configuration for DNA Center, or is it the same as APIC-EM?

Thank you

Ty

There are 2 types of  PnP with DNA Center:  PnP for LAN Automation and PnP for Device Management. I have enclosed some links that should answer your questions.

DHCP Option based Discovery over an IPv4 Network

 

The DHCP option 43 and option 60 is a vendor specific identifier which is used by the PnP agent to locate and connect to the PnP server. To support multiple vendors, the PnP agent in Cisco device sends out a case-sensitive “ciscopnp” as the option 60 string during the DHCP discovery. The DHCP server can be configured with multiple classes matching with a different option 60 string that comes from each network device. After the option 60 string matches, the DHCP server sends out the corresponding option 43 string back to the device. The following is the format for defining the option 43 for PnP deployments:

 

option 43 ascii "5A;K5;B2;I10.30.30.10;J443;Ttftp://10.30.30.10/ ios.p7b;Z10.30.30.1

 

The field ‘T’ in the PnP string provides an option for the network administrator to specify the location of the certificate bundle, which can be hosted on a local or remote file server.
