DHCP server

Hi,

I config 3 VLANs in the network. There is one DHCP server per VLAN. I would like to achieve following:

VLAN 1: 192.168.11.0

DHCP svr: 192.168.11.23

backup DHCP svr: 192.168.12.23 and 192.168.13.23

VLAN 2: 192.168.12.0

DHCP svr: 192.168.12.23

backup DHCP svr: 192.168.11.23 and 192.168.13.23

VLAN 3: 192.168.13.0

DHCP svr: 192.168.13.23

backup DHCP svr: 192.168.11.23 and 192.168.12.23

Device: Catalyst 3750

Any missing in the config as below?

There is nothing missing but be aware that all DHCP servers will be used for each vlan so the local DHCP will see the request but also the 2 ip helper-addresses will see the request per vlan as well. The local one should be the first to respond but that is not always a given.

So you need to make sure that each DHCP server hands out unique addresses per vlan ie. 3 DHCP servers per vlan means each DHCP server is responsible for a 3rd of the subnet for that vlan. You cannot have 2 or more DHCP servers responsible for the same address.

Re: DHCP server

Hi,

Configuring DHCP you need to create pools for alloting ip address for particular vlan,check out the below link for configuraing dhcp in cisco switches.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/access/1800/1801/software/configuration/guide/dhcpvlan.pdf

and check out the sample configuration regarding dhcp.

ip dhcp pool pool1
   network 10.10.1.0 255.255.255.0
   default-router 10.10.1.1
   dns-server what.ever.ip.itis
!
ip dhcp pool pool2
   network 10.10.2.0 255.255.255.0
   default-router 10.10.2.1
   dns-server what.ever.ip.itis2
vlan 10
ip address 10.10.1.1 255.255.255.0
!
vlan 20
ip address 10.10.2.1 255.255.255.0

the default-router command ties that pool to the interface (vlan)

Hope that helps out your query !!
