This article describes on how to enable DHCP server on ePMP devices for the clients connected below the SM ethernet interface. This would avoid use of external DHCP server.

This option is available on the Subscriber Module only in NAT or Router mode and acts as a DHCP server for the devices associated to its ethernet interface.
DHCP Server Enabled: Use this setting when SM is in NAT or Router mode, to use the SM’s local/onboard DHCP server to hand out IP addresses to its clients.
DHCP Server Disabled: Use this setting when SM is in NAT or Router mode if there is an existing DHCP Server below the SM handing out IP Addresses or if all devices below the SM will be configured with static IP Addresses.
Navigate to SM Configuration > Network > Enable NAT
Navigate to SM Configuration > Network > Enable Router
