    Need to have my new NetVanta 1534P boot up and pull a DHCP address

      Based on my reading, when the factory new 1534P is booted up, it defaults to  I want it to boot up and grab a DHCP IP so that I can remote into it remotely (I am sending it to a remote location that I am connected to via a VPN).


      After it boots up I will be able to see the new IP in the Router that I have access to remotely.


      If the unit does not get a DHCP IP by default (and instead gets the 10.10.10.a with how can I change this via altering the DHCP settings on the router(?)  supposedly, according to this:  https://supportforums.adtran.com/servlet/JiveServlet/previewBody/1714-102-2-6734/61200560L1-29.2B.pdf

      a user can setup the DHCP server to tell the device things... Presumably the only thing I need to tell the device it to use DHCP, can somebody tell me how to do that?


      Thanks in advance,

          Hi Steve:


          Before shipping the switch, configure interface vlan 1 to obtain a DHCP address.  From the enable prompt:


          interface vlan 1

          ip address dhcp


          Remember to write the configuration for persistence:





          Now you can power down and ship the switch.  Alternately, if you have shipped a switch with default IP address, logon to the remote router and assign IP address or similar as a secondary address.  Then you can telnet from the router CLI to the switch.  This presumes that the switch allows telnet (it does by default).


          From an ADTRAN router's config prompt:


          interface eth 0/1  (or whatever you use for the LAN interface)

          ip address secondary




          NOTE:  the word secondary is very important.
