VM::EC2::REST::dhcp(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation VM::EC2::REST::dhcp(3)

 use VM::EC2 qw(:vpn);

These methods manage DHCP Option objects, which can then be applied to a VPC to configure the DHCP options applied to running instances. You get these methods when you import the tag ":vpn".

This method creates a DhcpOption object, The single required argument is a configuration list hash (which can be passed either as a hashref or a flattened hash) with one or more of the following keys:
 -domain_name            Domain name for instances running in this VPC.
 -domain_name_servers    Scalar or arrayref containing up to 4 IP addresses of
                         domain name servers for this VPC.
 -ntp_servers            Scalar or arrayref containing up to 4 IP addresses
                         of network time protocol servers
 -netbios_name_servers   Scalar or arrayref containing up to 4 IP addresses for
                         NetBIOS name servers.
 -netbios_node_type      The NetBios node type (1,2,4 or 8). Amazon recommends
                         using "2" at this time.
On successful completion, a VM::EC2::VPC::DhcpOptions object will be returned. This can be associated with a VPC using the VPC object's set_dhcp_options() method:
 $vpc     = $ec2->create_vpc(...);
 $options = $ec2->create_dhcp_options(-domain_name=>'',

Delete the indicated DHCPOptions, returning true if successful. You may also use the named argument -dhcp_options_id..

This method returns a list of VM::EC2::VPC::DhcpOptions objects, which describe a set of DHCP options that can be assigned to a VPC. Called with no arguments, it returns all DhcpOptions. Pass a list of option IDs or a filter hashref in order to restrict the search.
Optional arguments:
 -dhcp_options_id     Scalar or arrayref of DhcpOption IDs.
 -filter              Hashref of filters.
Available filters are described at

Associate a VPC ID with a DHCP option set. Pass an ID of 'default' to restore the default DHCP options for the VPC.
