Hardware Version:
Firmware Version: 5.0.15

Hello

 

A lot of deployments make use of DHCP options 66 & 67 for networking booting of computers with PXE, whereas Omada only has the ability to set option 66, and no option 67.

 

Are there any plans in the roadmap to add this as an option? It would make setups a lot cleaner and allow DHCP to be ran on the omada system itself as opposed to a separate server handing DHCP requests.

 

Thanks.

I'd like to update this feature request here.

 

Omada Software Controller v5.8 and OC200/OC300 Controller v5.9 has added the following New DHCP Options for Omada Routers:

✔ Option 2: Time Offset

✔ Option 42: NTP Server Network Boot

✔ Option 67: TFTP Server

✔ Option 252: WPAD URL

✔ DHCP Options Customization

 

Please ensure that both your Omada Controller and Router are updated to the firmware adapted to Controller v5.8 or later version.

 

Note:

For OC200/OC300 controller v5.9, you may need to manually upgrade the firmware via local access as it is a major firmware upgrade.

 

FYI, the following router firmware has added support for new DHCP Options in Controller mode.

ER605 V1_1.2.3_Build 20230413 Beta Firmware For Trial (Released on Apr 14th, 2023)

ER605 V2_2.1.1 Official Firmware (Released on Jan 30th, 2023)

ER7206 V1_1.3.0 Official Firmware (Released on Mar 28th, 2023)

I also request this feature. I am attempting to utilize netboot.xyz on the network, and cannot use option 67.

I can set option 66 but the client don't get it with the DHCP response. Should this work or is it a known issue?

  @AffectedArc07 @Fae  - 

I just ran into this issue - Yet Another basic feature missing or only half implemented.

ER605 DHCP option 67 : TPLinkOmada (reddit.com) - says it's disable when using the controller?!

  @AffectedArc07 

I've notice the latest version of ER605 V2_2.1.1 Official Firmware items 23. Add support for DHCP Option field which seems to implement a lot of feature required for PXE Boot server support.   Any plan when this would be move into other device like the ER7206 and eventually be configurable in the SDN Controler ?

 

I am still waiting for this key feature that should be out of the box with a prosumer device like Omada.

  @Irish1986 - it's in (the release notes for) the controller v5.8.4 for Windows and Linux, so presumably when show up on each hardware platform as that version of the controller software is updated.
