Cisco Router DHCP options for SCCM

brrance used Ask the Experts™
I am working on getting SCCM going and need to add options to the routers at each location.  I am looking for any help on adding the options 66 and 67.  I am just starting out in networking so any additional articles or books recommended would be great as well.

Thanks in advanced for the help.

Are you sure you are using your routers as dhcp servers? I would strongly recommend moving dhcp to Microsoft dhcp servers unless it is a very small environment.

On a Cisco device, the options specified can be configured under the dhcp pool using:

option 66 ascii tftp-server-name
Bootfile bootfile-name

Bootfile is equivalent to option 67.
To provide the IP address or name of a TFTP server for option 66, enter the following command:

ip dhcp pool NAME
 option 66 ascii server_name
 option 67 ascii "file.cfg"

ip dhcp pool NAME
 option 66 ip XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
 option 67 ascii "file.cfg"
