DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

Hi,

How I can enable DHCP Server on the 5406zl switch? Can I do it?

For example, on some routers I can do this:

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.198.1 192.168.198.149
ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.198.170 192.168.198.254
no ip dhcp relay information check

ip dhcp pool test
network 192.168.198.0 255.255.255.0
domain-name test.com
default-router 192.168.198.11
dns-server 192.168.91.5
netbios-name-server 192.168.91.5

On the 5406zl switch, can I do something similar?

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

basically, no...

the dhcp service on procurve switches only supports connected devices going for web-auth on an 802.1X platform...

for normal device dhcp needs, you need an external dhcp server...

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

Hey,

 

I realise this is an ancient topic, however for people searching for this information i would like to update this topic:

 

HP introduced a DHCP-server function with one of the newer firmware releases.

Try firmware K15.14.xxxx or search the release notes.

 

I have a 5406 with firmware K15.16.0005 and here are some commands you can look into for setting up dhcp.

 

in your vlan configuration:

Conf t

vlan X

you can set dhcp-server with command "dhcp-server"

 

this enables the vlan for dhcp-server use.

 

Next setup a dhcp server with pools and enable the dhcp server:

 

in normal config mode, no vlan context:

(Config)#

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here"

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here" network "your ipnetwork and mask"

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here" default-router "gateway adres here"

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here" domain-name "your domain name"

 

additionally you can add dhcp options, lease time, exclusions, static ip adresses reservations and a ip range to hand out.

 

for example:

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here" range "start ip adres here" "end ip adres here"

dhcp-server pool "yourpoolname here" lease 02:00:00      <- this sets your lease time to 48 hours

 

 

finally you can (globally) enable the dhcp-server using:

dhcp-server enable

 

Below you wil find a cut and paste from the configuration file.

 

vlan 100

   name "DCR-Services"

   untagged B1-B11

   ip address 10.128.100.1 255.255.255.0

   dhcp-server

   exit

 

dhcp-server pool "DCR-Services"

   authoritative

   default-router "10.128.100.1"

   domain-name "proef.tuin"

   lease 02:00:00

   network 10.128.100.0 255.255.255.0

   range 10.128.100.51 10.128.100.200

   exit

dhcp-server enable

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

I think you mean range instead of pool, but that should do it.

dhcp-server pool "test"

   range 172.16.30.100 172.16.30.200

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

To create DHCP pools per VLAN, each VLAN needs a unique subnet and the switch needs an IP on that subnet. Then it is simply a matter to create a pool with a unique name for each network.

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

I love this thread . Question . What if I wanted to set up an Helper address for the vlan ? Would it just point to an address in the pool or do I need to set up another pool?

Re: DHCP Server service on 5406zl switch

The helper points to a DHCP server outside of the VLAN where the request comes from. It is usually configured on the gateway router of the VLAN.

The switch needs to have routing enabled and nedds a route to the DHCP server. It then forwards the request from the VLAN to the external DHCP server.

Hi,

Run DHCP enable command under the pool as below:

CoreSw(config)# dhcp-server pool "Wireless-Access-Point"
CoreSw(Wireless-Access-Point)# range 192.168.25.34 192.168.25.38
CoreSw(Wireless-Access-Point)# dhcp-server enable
CoreSw(Wireless-Access-Point)# exit
CoreSw(config)#
