Has anyone set SLP custom options in the Aerohive DHCP server? In our ISC DHCP server, they are:
option slp-service-scope true "pinn_scope";
option slp-directory-agent true 10.2.24.10;

I specified it as a Hex value in the DHCP config
Option 78 - Hex - 010a02180a
Option 79 - Hex - 0170696e6e5f73636f7065

In both cases the leading 01 is a mandatory field that sets whether the DHCP options override locally set options.

See http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2610 for more info on the SLP DHCP options
