How to configure DHCP option 66 on a SRX device.

DHCP option 66 is the name of the TFTP server. It can also be the IP address of the TFTP server.
root# set system services dhcp option 66 string "tftp://"

root# commit check
[edit system services dhcp option]
Set `boot-server' instead of `option 66'
error: configuration check-out failed
So, you have to configure boot-server as follows:
root# set system services dhcp boot-server tftp:// > It can also be an IP address

root# commit check
configuration check succeeds
You can either specify the boot-server globally or specifically to a pool. If the boot server is configured in both places, then the value that is specified under the pool will be used.
