EOS-based switches report DHCP Relay messages"Request could not be relayed to Server"
EOS based switches report this type of message when logging application "router" and "logging default severity" is set to 8
0.0.0.0 DHCPRELAY: relay_main.c(315) 207319 This is from manager 1 %% Request could not be relayed to Server
set logging local console enable file enable
set logging default Severity 8
set logging application Router level 8

The logging of the message was caused by DHCP discover packets traversing the other vlans. These packets could not be serviced by the relay agent because there is no ip helper-address configured on some of interface vlans so the DHCP request was never processed..
To address the issue using a sniffer, capture traffic on the interfaces that do not have a ip helper-address applied, to only capture the DHCP packets, use the filter in wireshark: bootp
Then Add the proper ip helper-address to the interfaces
To temporally hide the messages: Change the logging application level for Router back to the default setting of 6
