    Hi all,

    Can anyone please advise how I can delete a predefined option (global) that
    I have just created? DHCP server is a windows 2003 box and I created an
    option for PXEClient but set the value as byte rather than string. I just
    want to remove this new optiion but I don't know how to.

    When I go in to delete it, (select dhcpserver\click Action menu\Set
    predetermined options\Select option 60) the delete button is disabled. The
    only way I can delete anything is if I change the OPtion class to anything
    other than 'dhcp standard options'

    Does anyone know how I can go about deleting this option as I need to reset
    it from byte to string?

    Please email me to if you can help me out with this.

    Run NETSH
    then to delete entry:
    dhcp server \\servername
    delete optiondef 60
    show optionvalue all

    to add new entry:
    add optiondef 60 PXEClient STRING 0 comment=â€Option added for PXE supportâ€
    set optionvalue 60 STRING PXEClient
    show optionvalue all
