3750 in routing mode acting as dhcp servr. Two vlans: client and staff. dhcp pool is set up relevant to client vlan. Only one port in staff vlan which is connected to a 2960, all of whose ports are in staff vlan. Off this 2960 is a w2k3 dhcp server. Obviously, I do not want any dhcp traffic from 3750 to staff switch. How do I disable/prevent dhcp on the 3750 staff port? The 2960 has a management interface in the staff vlan. The 3750 also has a management interface in the staff vlan. All other ports are in trunking mode since the neighbor switches have management interfaces in the staff vlan.
You configure DHCP for a specific VLAN when you configure the network address in the DHCP pool. When the 3750 receives a DHCP request it looks at the address of the VLAN interface on which it received the request and looks for a network address in a pool that matches the interface address. So in your config network 172.17.0.0 255.255.128.0 matches VLAN 2 and will offer IP addresses to clients in that VLAN. Since there is no network address in any pool on the 3750 that matches 10.10.x.x then it will not offer DHCP on VLAN 1.
