How to Activate Text-Based Configuration

  • Last updated on

You can view and configure the DHCP server settings in a text configuration file. Note that if you manually configure the DHCP server in a text configuration file, all of the settings that have been made in the user interface are disabled.

Before You Begin

Before you can view and configure the DHCP server in a text configuration file, enable advanced pool configuration in the DHCP service setup. For more information, see How to Configure Advanced DHCP Settings.

View the Configuration File

To view the DHCP server configuration in read-only text:

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > DHCP > DHCP Enterprise Configuration.
  2. In the left menu expand Configuration Mode and click Advanced View.
  3. In the left menu, select GUI as Text.
  4. Click Lock.
  5. Enable Show GUI as Text.
  6. Click Send Changes and Activate

In the GUI Corresponding Text table, the read-only DHCP server configuration is displayed.

Configure the DHCP Server Text Configuration File

The DHCP server text configuration file must be created directly on the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall when configuring a managed firewall.

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > DHCP > DHCP Enterprise Configuration.
  2. In the left menu expand Configuration Mode and click Advanced View.
  3. In the left menu, select Text Based Configuration.
  4. Click Lock.

    option <option-name> <parameter>
