Hi Engineers alike -
I have had a customer ask me to configure multiple VLAN's on a Cisco 2960 standard switch. They have stated that they would like DHCP enabled on the VLAN interfaces as they don't want ANY STATIC IP's within their subnets. Has anyone heard of such a thing? I don't think it's possible personally, but then again I am sure it is and I am just no in the know.
I would certainly say that having an IP address configured on the vlan interface of the device that is doing the layer 3 routing is a best practice (and I suspect that Jon would also but I do not want to put words in his mouth).
Your suspicions are correct, i most definitely would say the same thing
