Configure 3560 switch as DHCP Server

Unanswered Question
Apr 14th, 2009

Dear All,


I want to configure my Cisco Switch 3560 as DHCP server so that my users in different vlans (configured) can assign IPs automatically,


I am using this configuration,


ip dhcp pool Marketing

network 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0

default-router 192.168.2.1

dns-server 192.168.1.17


what else i need to configure on my layer 3 switch to work properly..


In this case, when i connect a PC to a port assigned in Vlan 2, its not getting Ip address automatically,,


Please write Sample configuration...


Regards,

Junaid

Dear Toshi,


I applied your configuration but it is not working,


Please check my configuration,


ip subnet-zero

ip routing

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.2.1

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.2.1 192.168.2.20


ip dhcp pool D_MKT

network 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0

default-router 192.168.2.1

dns-server 192.168.1.17

domain-name 192.168.1.17

lease 8


ip dhcp-server 192.168.2.1


vlan 2

name MKT


interface FastEthernet0/8

switchport access vlan 2

switchport mode access


interface Vlan2

ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

ip access-group 110 out


ip classless


access-list 110 permit ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 any


I applied ACL to permit different vlan users to get access on servers vlans...


Please HELP!

I applied ACL to permit different vlan users to get access on servers vlans... < --- And there's an explicit DENY ANY ANY at the end of the line.

Junaid ,

Let's modify things.

access-list 110 permit ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 any

access-list 110 permit udp any eq bootpc any

access-list 110 permit udp any eq bootps any



HTH,

Toshi

Dear Toshi,


Congratss!!


previous configuration started working,


Actually, the machine which i was using for testing, (its DHCP service was blocked),,


When i tried it with another Computer, it is getting Ip address and other information,


THANKS AGAIN..

Junaid,

You're right. I got confused because the router generating traffic would not be blocked by outbound ACL.



Good job,

Toshi
