Hello Roman,

I suppose you are using a multilayer switch.


I tried to look at command reference for debug ip packet in 12.2SX used in Cat6500.

I didn't find forus packet.


However, the first raw should be a DHCP request from a booting client if no ip helper-address pointing to a dhcp server is configured under vlan1 SVI the packet is discarded for its broadcast destination and this is correct behavior


the following lines are about a packet with source 10.132.16.1 with d= 10.132.1.16 and same size 330 byte as first discarded packet.


This packet is sent to 10.132.1.16.


I may be wrong but I think that you have ip helper-address under vlan1 pointing to ip 10.132.1.16 and that vlan1's ip address is 10.132.16.1

If so you are seeing the switch activity when receiving a dhcp request :

original packet is discarded

a modified version as per ip helper-address is routed to vlan10:

*Mar 1 00:16:34.419: IP: s=10.132.16.1 (local), d=10.132.1.16 (Vlan10), len 330

, sending full packet


Hope to help

Giuseppe
