SNMP - Additional Option Question

I wish to setup a few new options in my /etc/dhcpd.conf file. Currently, running with V3.0.5_RedHat. During my testing I've added a new option "platform-name" and restarted the DHCPD daemon. It starts fine but when I run "dhclient -R platform-name" I get the response that the option does not exist?

Any help would be appreciated and here is a copy of my "/etc/dhcpd.conf" that I'm testing with:

ddns-update-style interim;

# Declare Setup Information
option platform-name code 130 = text;

subnet netmask {
option subnet-mask ;
option domain-name-servers;

host test {
        hardware ethernet 00:1A:A0:AF:48:F6;
        option host-name test;
        option platform-name "isis";

I've tried both "text" and "string" and get the same response that the option does not exist. Any standard options "root-path" or "host-name" work just fine.
