I am using a new MAC running OSX Mavericks with a solaris ISC DHCPD server.

I have setup some additional options on the DHCPD server but it is my understanding that most DHCP clients don't request all DHCP Options.

I'm trying to ascertain how I configure OSX to send a DHCP request that includes these additional options.

My overall goal here is to issue option 26 which stipulates an MTU size.
