Secondary DHCP scope in a single VLAN

Unanswered Question
Mar 31st, 2008


I am running out of IP. So i want to assign a secondary pool into my vlan. After doing so the end users are unable to get IP from the dhcp server.



ip address

ip helper-address

Now IP pool is finished. So i created a secondary pool for the same VLAN as i can't create any further vlan into the switch as per client instruction. But if i use static IP it works.

Please suggest.

I do not believe that we have enough information yet to be able to help you with your issue. You have shown us the VLAN, its IP address, and its helper address. But you have given us no information about the primary DHCP pool or about the secondary DHCP pool that you are trying to use. If you provide some details about these perhaps we will be able to give you better answers.

the problem is resolved.

i used the command "ip dhcp smart-relay" in global configuration.
