  The xjoin program is a graphical user	interface program that enables you to
  configure the	DHCP server and	server databases.  For more information	on
  DHCP,	see dhcp(7).

  To start xjoin, enter	the following command:

       # /usr/bin/X11/xjoin

  Click	on one of the tabs to get started.

  To exit xjoin, select	File then Exit.	Click on Yes in	the Verify dialog box
  to confirm that you want to exit the program.

  The Main Window

  Each tab along the top of the	Main window represents a category of parame-
  ters that you	set to configure systems on your network.  When	you select a
  tab, the parameters for the subject of the tab are listed.

  For the Server/Security, Subnets, Nodes, and Groups tabs, the	window is
  separated into three parts.  On the left is the subject to be	configured,
  in the middle	are the	parameter choices for the subject, and on the right
  is the field into which you enter a value for	a parameter.  When you select
  a parameter in the middle of the window, you enter a value for it into a
  field	on the right side of the window.

  For the Active IP Snapshot and Preload MAC addresses,	the window is divided
  into two parts. On the left are those	addresses that have been configured.
  On the right are the corresponding parameters	for the	configured addresses.

  Entering Information into Fields

  You can enter	the following information in a field:

    +  Descriptive text, like an IP address

    +  Time in hours, minutes, and seconds

    +  A true or false selection

  Where	there is more than one value field, press Tab to move to the next

  To delete information	in a field, select the text and	press the Delete key.

  As you add or	revise information in a	field, the information is automati-
  cally	saved in memory.  However, to update the database with the changes
  you have made, click on the Update button.

  For some subjects, you can add more than one record, such as when you	are
  adding certain client	configurations.	 When you want to add a	new record,
  select New Record on the left	side of	the window.  If	there is only one
  possible record for a	subject, New Record does not appear.

  To print the contents	of a record, select Print.


  You must have	superuser privileges to	use xjoin.

  A cluster member should never	be a DHCP client. It should always use static

  If a cluster is to support a DHCP server, there can be only one DHCP server
  for all the cluster members using a common database with failover.


      Specifies	the command path.
