I have the following:

subnet1----Router1-------------Router2(DHCP pool1 + pool2)



I added ip helper-address pointing to Router2;

when the clients on Subnet1 or Subnet2 trying to get ip address;

on Router2 debug appears

"there is no address pool for"

where 172..18.1.0 is the link between the two routers not the pools.

Address assignmnet in the DHCP is totally depend on the GID field DHCP Packet if you try to do some reacher on DHCP packet theory then you will come to know how DHCP will assign the IP address to perticular host from perticular pool...

explaination is little bit long so if you will try to search it from internet then it will be good... otherwise come back to disscussion forum
