allow booting; deny booting; ignore booting;
The booting flag is used to tell dhcpd whether or not to respond to queries from a particular client. This keyword only has meaning when it appears in a host declaration. By default, booting is allowed, but if it is disabled for a particular client, then that client will not be able to get an address from the DHCP server.
The DHCP server will normally assume that the configuration information about a given network segment is not known to be correct and is not authoritative.
Network administrators setting up authoritative DHCP servers for their networks should always write authoritative; at the top of their configuration file to indicate that the DHCP server should send DHCPNAK messages to misconfigured clients.
The update-static-leases flag, if enabled, causes the DHCP server to do DNS updates for clients even if those clients are being assigned their IP address using a fixed-address statement.
If the use-host-decl-names parameter is true the name provided for the host declaration will be supplied to the client as its hostname.
