Would selecting class based on relay address work?
Each host would have membership in one class(C-1) based on the present
criteria and another class(R-1) based on the relay address. Class R-1
would then have the option 43 and class C-1 has other options.
This is probably murky water, each host will then be member in two
different classes - assuming that both class definitions contain
options, how would dhcp resolve which options to use if the same option
is set (differently) in both classes?
I have never tried anything like this, never had the use. It might still
be an interesting way to solve some challenges.
No improvements come from shouting:
