DhcpV4SetOptionValue function

The DhcpV4SetOptionValue function sets information for a specific option value on the DHCP server. This function extends the functionality provided by DhcpSetOptionValueV5 by allowing the caller to specify a policy for the option.

Syntax


DWORD DHCP_API_FUNCTION DhcpV4SetOptionValue(
  _In_opt_  LPWSTR ServerIpAddress,
  _In_      DWORD Flags,
  _In_      DHCP_OPTION_ID OptionId,
  _In_opt_  LPWSTR PolicyName,
  _In_opt_  LPWSTR VendorName,
  _In_      LPDHCP_OPTION_SCOPE_INFO ScopeInfo,
  _In_      LPDHCP_OPTION_DATA OptionValue
);
