DHCP over trunk


DHCP over trunk


I have an 8212 core switch (J9091A) connected via 2 x HPE X121 1G SFP LC SX fibre tranceivers to an OpenConnect Switch 1820 24G (J9980A)

The fibre trunk appears to be up but I'm not getting DHCP traffic between the switches.  The core switch, and other switches on site, have a command line interface for configuration but the 1820 swich only has a web interface with limited options.

Any ideas on how I can get the 1820 switch to participate in my network would be much appreciated.

Re: DHCP over trunk

I guess I would start by checking my switchport config on the inter-connected switchports, including VLAN memberships.
