Re: Command DHCP

You would have to set up the ip helper-address x.x.x.x command on the interface that needs to forward the DHCP request. x.x.x.x is the IP for the Microsoft Server running DHCP.

Re: Command DHCP

If you have a secondary address, you need to define a Superscope in the Microsoft DHCP Server, including the primary scope and secondary scope (acording with the primary and secondary address of the interface).

Why? Becouse the DHCP Server only assign IP Address of the scope that matches with their network .... if you have a Superscope and the primary scope is full, the DHCP Server assign IP Address of the secondary scope.
