Create DHCP Server in VyOS

set service dhcp-server shared-network-name <NAME-OF-NETWORK> subnet <SUBNET-ADDR/MASK> start <IP-ADDRESS-OF-START>stop <IP-ADDRESS-OF-STOP>

You may want to set up static leases which you can do by using

set service dhcp-server shared-network-name <NAME-OF-NETWORK> subnet <SUBNET-ADDR/MASK> static-mapping <NAME-OF-RULE> mac-address <MAC-ADDRESS-OF-MACHINE>
set service dhcp-server shared-network-name <NAME-OF-NETWORK> subnet <SUBNET-ADDR/MASK> static-mapping <NAME-OF-RULE [same as above]> ip-address <IP-ADDRESS-OF-MACHINE>

You can also set the default router (IE the gateway) and the DNS server using

set service dhcp-server shared-network-name <NAME-OF-NETWORK> subnet <SUBNET-ADDR/MASK> default-router <IP-ADDRESS>
set service dhcp-server shared-network-name <NAME-OF-NETWORK> subnet <SUBNET-ADDR/MASK> dns-server <IP-ADDRESS>
