Information

 
TitleClients are not able to get IP addresses via DHCP
Symptoms
Clients are not able to get IP addresses via DHCP
Environment
  • EXOS All
  • DHCP
Cause
The DHCP server is not local to the client vlan, and bootprelay is not configured to forward the dhcp request to the dhcp server on another vlan.
Resolution
Configure bootprelay for the client and server vlans.
  • configure bootprelay add <DHCP_SERVER_IP>
  • enable bootprelay <vlan>
    • ​If you leave out the vlan bootprelay is enabled on all IP vlans
    • If you specify each vlan, it is important it is enabled on the client vlan but also on the vlan where the DHCP server resides !
