Im using 2 x 3750G switches as callapsed core/distribution switches. I have 6 Vlans (1, 10,20,30,40,50) that will be assigned per switch block.
Switch block 1
This will have 5 switches in the block connected at the top switch via fibre trunk to core_1 and at the bottom switch via fibre trunk to core_2. Each switch is then daisy chained, via copper, to one and other and all switches in the stack have vlan 10 assigned to there ports. Vlan 1 also has access as it is the management vlan and all servers are configured on this vlan.
All the other switch blocks are connected the same as above but have a different Vlans configured and some have less switches in the stack.
I have a selection of switches mainly 6+ x 3560G's, but also 3550G, 3550 and 5 x 2960G's.
I'm looking at configuring a DHCP server on the top switch on each switch block/stack, to assign IP address to clients on the assigned vlan eg Vlan 10 - 10.217.13.0/24 network.
I have been trying to configure DHCP on a 2960G Lanbase switch but cannot get it to assign an ip to a laptop I plug in to it.
I have reset the config now but was trying:
ip dhcp pool Vlan10
network 10.217.13.0 255.255.255.0
default-router 10.217.12.1 (ip of vlan 1 on core_1)
option 150 ip 10.217.12.1 (not sure why? read a sample config)
(again do not have dns-server configured and connected to the network, just 1 x laptop, 2x cores and 2 x 2960G's)
I assigned an IP address pool and created excluded-addresses, but still I have problems!! :0(
Can someone please help me with the config as I'm struggling? , also if the configuration would be better on one of the other model of switches I have eg. 3560G etc then please give your opinion?
