Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

Config load resets the request-option in "tmsh sys management-dhcp" to its default value when they are set to "none" in configuration.

Impact

User configuration is reverted as a side-effect of config load.

Conditions

- A config load in which request-option in "tmsh sys management-dhcp" is set to "none".

Workaround

request-option specify the minimal set of configuration that DHCP server must provide as part of the lease. Setting it to "none" defeats the whole purpose of DHCP. It's better to set it to a minimal value like "routers, subnet-mask" in order to have management connectivity.

Fix Information

DHCP request-options when set to "none" are reset to defaults when loading the config.
