DHCP Client name does not print in my router client name.

Hey folks,

Can anybody tell me, why my "DHCP client ID" does not appear in a router?

[code]

cat /var/run/nm-dhclient-wlan0.conf

# Created by NetworkManager

send dhcp-client-identifier "jazzman"; # added by NetworkManager

uname -r

2.6.32-131.17.1.el6.x86_64

[/code]

My OS is CentOS 6 - 64 bit.

Here is the screenshot from a router:

Thanks in advance.

The forum attachment function is permanently broken.

I can only guess that the DHCP server is ignoring the client identifier.
