DHCP client identifier 61 return VLAN id

I am using my pa-850 as a DHCP server on a small office LAN. I need to assign a VLAN to the phones and another VLAN to the computers. The phones are sending Option 61 Client identifier as part of DHCP Discover. How do I configure DHCP custom options to use the Option 61 value and return a specified VLAN ID?

I would probably best refer you to this section of the Admin guide for DHCP option assistance.

Thanks, I've been through the guide and I think I'm configuring it correctly, but it's not working. It would be nice to see an example screenshot or two instead of just instructions. For example a screenshot with Step 3 '(Optional) Configure a vendor-specific or custom DHCP option that the DHCP server sends to its clients' would really help to verify syntax.
