ME3800 DHCP relay packets problem with.

Hi everyone,

I faced with issue on ME3800.

interface Vlan77

description ### Staging LRS ###

ip dhcp relay information trusted

ip address secondary

ip address

ip helper-address

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no ip proxy-arp

ip pim sparse-mode

With that configuration there is no problem with DHCP Relay packets.

But if I add  on interface #xconnect 77 encapsulation mpls it will stop forward DHCP relay packets immediately. All other traffic transfers without problem.

Cisco IOS Software, ME380x Software (ME380x-UNIVERSAL-M), Version 15.1(2)EY1a

Who can explain where is the cause of issue?

I also would like to point out a bug on ME3600 with ip helper.

I'm running IOS 15.2(2)S2 and all PCs behind the ME3600 passing through ip helper address to get an IP from a central DHCP server, when doing ipconfig /all on the PCs, the DHCP server address is set to the VLAN interface of the ME3600, not the DHCP server !

I've never seen that before.

All other PCs behind other L3 swithes (C3650, C3750 etc..) are showing the right IP address of the DHCP server.

Have you any feedback about a such bug ??
