Not sure whether you are asking about making a cat6k switch as DHCP server or client? If you are thinking of making it as a client, then what is the use if you don't plan to have a server ?

Actually I want to make a cat6k switch as a server.

Sample config on a 6500 with MSFC

ip dhcp pool 0

network 10.40.4.0 255.255.255.0

default-router 10.40.4.232

lease infinite

You can exclude IP addressess or ranges to refine your scope

ip dhcp excluded-address 10.40.4.1 10.40.4.42

ip dhcp excluded-address 10.40.4.44 10.40.4.254

In this case only 10.40.4.43 would be availabel for issue.
