I setup an interface on my ASA5520 to be a guest network so visitors of our company would have access to the internet. However, I'm not able to get DHCP working properly. If I hardcode the settings, everything works fine. Can someone look at this config and let me know if I'm missing something? Thanks.

interface GigabitEthernet0/2

nameif guest

security-level 50

ip address

dns domain-lookup guest

dns server-group DefaultDNS



nat (guest) 10

dhcpd address guest

dhcpd dns interface guest

dhcpd update dns both override interface guest

dhcpd enable guest

The config for basic dhcp is fine, I have seen scenarios where dhcpd get stuck by disabling and re-enabling it activates ..


no dhcpd enable gues, then re-enable it

dhcpd enable guest

if not then

debug dhcpd event

debug dhcpd packet

Thanks!! Disabling and Enabling fixed the issue.

I hate when that's the problem.
