I need to send vendor-options to DHCP server using dhclient (ISC). As I understand I need to describe that options in the dhclient.conf.

Do I need make new "space" for options? Or I can do "send"?

Can someone help me with this or give me, please, any good examples/ links to text.

Thank you in advance.

Finally I came to this solution: in your config file add 00:00:11:8b:00:02:00:04:45:53:54:42 - this is hex string

send dhcp6.vendor-opts 00:00:11:8b:00:02:00:04:45:53:54:42;
