Overview: Configuring DHCP lease query
The F5® Policy Enforcement Manager™ (PEM) obtains DHCP lease information from the DHCP servers, to create new PEM™ sessions. There is support for both IPv4 and IPv6. When data packets arrive at BIG-IP® system, PEM also uses DHCP lease query to obtain IP lease information and re-create the PEM sessions.

Note: When you use an IPv4 address without specifying a prefix, the BIG-IP® system automatically uses a /32 prefix.Tip: You can use a catch-all virtual server (0.0.0.0) to specify all traffic that is delivered to the BIG-IP® system. Configure the source and destination setting, during forwarding mode only. In the relay mode, the client does not have an IP address and the DHCP provides the client with an IP address.The system will create a virtual server using the address or network you specify.
- For the Service Port setting, type or select the service port for the virtual server.
- From the VLAN and Tunnel Traffic list, select Enabled on. Then, for the VLANs and Tunnels setting, move the VLAN or VLANs on which you want to allow the virtual servers to share traffic from the Available list to the Selected list.
