Hi,

I have an issue with Enterasys B3 on 6.61.13.0006 firmware.
I have to use an ascii option like that :
set dhcp pool phone option 130 ascii "MITEL IP PHONE"
but after reboot the option has been deleted, i think because we have a "space" in the ascii

I had the same error with B5, but a new firware have been solve this issue.

Is it planned to change this in the B3 firmware ?

Thanks,
Fabien.

A bit of digging on this issue finds that the only known fix is in 6.71 firmware 6.71.02.0007 or higher. But, there is a ready workaround by not using any space characters in the quoted text string. Here, using "MITEL_IP_PHONE" should work for the B3 since there is no firmware-based fix.
