Hi Manmood,

thanks for your help. i have just one question.if any pc boots for the first time it will send DHCP Braodcast request to get ip. so whether that PC will get the ip from the correct dhcp scope?

It depends on which vlan the port that your'e pc is connected to is in. So if the port is in vlan 1 it will get an IP from vlan 1 scope, if the port is in vlan 2 it will get IP from vlan 2 scope.
