Before I bought my catalyst 2960-24tc-s, I was assured by sales staff that it had full DHCP functionality. However, upon unboxing I can find no hint of dhcp service beyond acting as a relay. no 'ip dhcp pool' command in the cli, no nothing! the documentation for configuring this guy only mentions setting up snooping and relay.
Is there something I'm missing? I need to be able to specify a tftpboot/pxe boot server for my VOIP phones and Ghost system.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
What is the exact version of your IOS? Can you post the output of the show version here? It is possible that you are running the LAN Lite image that perhaps does not support the DHCP functionality.
In any case, it is not usual (though not prohibited, either) to run a DHCP server on a Layer2 switch. Your network probably has a router - it would be more common to run a DHCP server on it, or have a dedicated DHCP server somewhere.
