Based off of work initially done by Dell, extended by Atalanta Systems and reworked by Opscode.

Pools, failovers, classes and subclasses are not yet supported.

Data Bag

Configuration for this service is through the dhcp data bag so other cookbooks and recipes may have access to this information as necessary. The configuration of the dhcpd.conf can either be done through attributes or through the default item in the data bag (data bag takes prescedence).

% knife data bag create dhcp
