 DHCP server does not take vendor class identifier into account for DHCP option 43

Products: Firebox & XTM
Operating System: Fireware
Issue Status: Open
Tracking ID: FBX-4310
Status: Open
Resolved In:
DHCP option 43 for vendor specific information does not take into account the vendor class identifier. All DHCP clients receive the same value for DHCP option 43, regardless of the vendor class identifier (DHCP request option 60) submitted to the Firebox DHCP server.
No workaround is available at this time. You could deploy a third-party DHCP server in environments that use a vendor class identifier in the DHCP request.
