Hi Rene,

I also noticed that subnet needs to be the same between the “giaddr” and the pool you create. Otherwise DHCP server won’t offer an IP address to the client. Just my observation. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks.

Hi Neldien,

Normally the DHCP server should be in the same subnet since the DHCP discover messages are broadcasts. If your DHCP server is in another subnet then you’ll have to use DHCP Relay:

I have setup a dhcp pool on my switch… It will work for maybe 10 min and stop working… Any Idea what is causing the switch to do that…
