Description (partial)

Current ASA software generates the DHCP client ID based by concatenating the 
following elements :

ASA 5505 +MER Connection Type
Hi My UK (SKY) Fibre provider requires MER authentication so I need to have my ASA 5505 to perform that. Even though ASA 5505 supports DHCP with option 61 it appears that you can only use either MAC close or the default settings "Cisco-<MAC address>-<Interface>-Host" However there is no option to parse credentials over DHCP option 61. Anyone aware of any workarounds? Thanks
