Hi all,

My case is like as follow:

A switch C2960 is connecting a DHCP server with trunk vlan 2.

If one client PC without static IP is connecting to a vlan-2 port. It can get DHCP IP.

If one client PC with static IP is connecting to a vlan-2 port. However, it can't get DHCP IP.

If the trunk port C2960-to-DHCP server connection changes to access port with vlan 2, it has get DHCP IP again.

Can anyone help me to fix the problem?

Is the Ip helpder-address configured on u r SVI which is doing intervlan routing.What is the other side config of the switch,verify it is also trunk.
