Task 1: Exporting all DHCP ranges

While it is possible to export one DHCP range at a time in the GM, it is difficult to use the graphical interface to bulk-export this object. Instead, use the CSV Job Manager tool to export all DHCP Ranges quickly. Open the exported data (CSV format) and remove unneeded data if desired.


Task 1 Solution: Exporting all DHCP ranges

The CSV Job Manager can be used for this exercise

  1. Login to NIOS GM web interface.

  2. Navigate to Grid → Grid Manager

  3. From the Toolbar click on CSV Job Manager

  4. Once the CSV Job Manager opens, switch to CSV Export

  5. In the CSV Export window, click + to add a New CSV Export job

  6. This opens the Global CSV Export Wizard, where you can choose what you want to export

  7. Change the separator if you want to (Comma is used by default)

  8. Scroll down the list of objects and check the box for IPv4 DHCP Ranges

  9. Click Export Data

  10. Read the message and click Yes to start the export operation

  11. CSV Global Export progress will show the export status

  12. Once the export finishes, the browser will prompt for the download location and filename for the exported file
