The main purpose of a DHCP server is to provide dynamic configuration for a group of hosts (mainly IP, Gateway and DNS). There are several options that can also be sent.
Option 12 (client hostname), which is supported by Cisco devices, doesn't make sense to me. I tried it. I set this option ON and set the value to "Tom". Then you can see that all hosts got the same name, which is "Tom".
In which scenarios would I need to set all hosts to the same exact name? What is the importance of such a thing?
