You will need to implement (DHCP Snooping) and trust DHCP on the required uplinks and access ports.

Another way is to check (IP Source Guard) Feature.

Please have a look at the attached document.

Hello Rajeesh,

on several platforms are available security features like dynamic ARP inspection.

On the basis of DAI ip source guard and DHCP snooping are possible and the latter is the specific tool to use to fight rogue DHCP servers.


Be aware that if you enable DHCP snooping the default state for all ports is untrusted so you need to declare trusted the access ports where a legitimate DHCP server is connected and the uplinks from which another switch can see legitimate servers answers.

Hope to help
