I was doing this in Windows Server 2013, and they actually accept Hex and Decimal.  But if you are not on 2012 you have to convert it.

You need to look what format the device supports - there is no general format/command.
Some devices allow to configure the IP in the GUI and some require it in hex via CLI.
The vendor of that hardware is responsible for the implementation and not Extreme Networks.

i.e. here a example for a Fortigate Firewall...
The controller has IP 10..10.10.10 which is in hex 0A0A0A0A plus you need to add 00 in the front...

Spoke1 # show system dhcp serverconfig system dhcp server
    edit 1
        set default-gateway 10.128.1.254
        set dns-service default
        set interface "internal"
            config ip-range
                edit 1
                    set end-ip 10.128.1.199
                    set start-ip 10.128.1.101
                next
            end
        set netmask 255.255.255.0
        set option1 78 '000A0A0A0A'
    next
end


To convert from decimal to hex I use my Windows build in Calculator.

Here another example for a Cisco ASA5505
# dhcpd option 43 ip 10.10.10.10 interface inside
