I'm facing issues in getting an ip address from a DHCP server in a central site. ip helper-address command is configured on the catalyst switch l3 that am connected to. this is connected to an mpls router goes through mpls cloud to the server. please confirm that we have to ask the MPLS service provider to configure ip helper-address in all their routers till the DHCP network.
Also once we configure the scope in the DHCP server for a particular VLAN network. Will it get the ipaddress from a DHCP server which resides different networks away..
also..;)..would it be just better to configure the l3 switch as a dhcp server..
