All RCEs use DHCP for IP address assignment.
The DHCP server can be located internally on a COB, or on an external host.
Internal DHCP servers require IP configuration of the shelf manager.
To use the internal DHCP server, select a single COB to be the DHCP host.
Extract the COB and set dip switch 4 to the ON position.
Make sure all other COBs on the subnet have dip switch 4 OFF.
Make sure no other DHCP servers are running on the subnet.
The DTM on the DHCP enabled COB will now act as a DHCP server for all RCEs on the subnet.
To use an external DHCP server not located on a COB, set dip switch 4 to OFF on all COBs.
For shelf DHCP and IP configuration, read pages 5, 7, and 8 of the following workshop presentation:
