DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The xjoin program is a graphical  user  interface  program
       that  enables  you to configure the DHCP server and server
       databases.  For more information on DHCP, see dhcp(7).

   The Main Window    [Toc]    [Back]
       Each  tab  along  the  top of the Main window represents a
       category of parameters that you set to  configure  systems
       on  your  network.   When you select a tab, the parameters
       for the subject of the tab are listed.

       For the Server/Security, Subnets, Nodes, and Groups  tabs,
       the  window is separated into three parts.  On the left is
       the subject to be configured, in the middle are the parameter
  choices  for  the  subject,  and on the right is the
       field into which you enter a value for a parameter.   When
       you  select  a  parameter in the middle of the window, you
       enter a value for it into a field on the right side of the

       For  the Active IP Snapshot and Preload MAC addresses, the
       window is divided into two parts. On the  left  are  those
       addresses that have been configured.  On the right are the
       corresponding parameters for the configured addresses.

   Entering Information into Fields    [Toc]    [Back]
       You can  enter  the  following  information  in  a  field:
       Descriptive  text,  like an IP address Time in hours, minutes,
 and seconds A true or false selection

       Where there is more than one value  field,  press  Tab  to
       move to the next field.

       To  delete  information  in  a  field, select the text and
       press the Delete key.

       As you add or revise information in a field, the  information
 is automatically saved in memory.  However, to update
       the database with the changes you have made, click on  the
       Update button.

       For  some subjects, you can add more than one record, such
       as when you  are  adding  certain  client  configurations.
       When  you  want  to add a new record, select New Record on
       the left side of the window.  If there is only one  possible
 record for a subject, New Record does not appear.

       To print the contents of a record, select Print.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       You must have superuser privileges to use xjoin.

       A  cluster member should never be a DHCP client. It should
       always use static addressing.

       If a cluster is to support a DHCP  server,  there  can  be
       only  one  DHCP server for all the cluster members using a
       common database with failover.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies the command path.
