As strange as this sounds, I have a need to be assigned an address on  
a Cat6500 Running IOS via dhcp (to a vlan or a dedicated port).  On  
most routers running IOS the command syntax is, "ip address dhcp" as  
just about anyone knows but on the sups running IOS (tested sup1a-ge/ 
MSFC1, sup2 and sup720s) I have not found a way to be assigned an  

I can only assume this is because no one in their right mind would  
ever do this on this platform but my install is requiring such.    
Before I try a flexwan with a PA-FE in it has anyone out there had  
this issue and if so would you be so kind to pass along a solution if  
there is one.

Thanks in advance for the time and help. //db
