I have my local network hooked to a vlan with a primary and secondary ip address assigned to the vlan. I have manual DHCP bindings setup in the switch using the MAC address of my laptops for the client identifier. Some laptops aren't pulling addresses and I am not seeing any message sent from the DHCP server in the switch stating NAKs, Offers, or Requests. Should DHCP work correctly even if there is a secondary IP address on the VLAN?
So would I be correct in assuming the secondary IP address would be causing the problem?
Yes, it's not a supported configuration for translating DHCP broadcast traffic into unicast towards the DHCP server located in a different Vlan.
