Switch ignoring dhcp "tftp-server server-ip"

I have a switch 2530 on default configuration, DHCP configured on the default VLAN.

The switch receives and acknowlodge the DHCP offer, but ignores aditional option "tftp-server server-ip" and is downloading config file from the DHCP server instead iMC server. 

DHCP Server IP: 10.0.1.240
iMC Server IP: 10.0.5.1


HP-dhcp-server# show run | b dhcp-server pool
dhcp-server pool "DEFAULT_VLAN"
   bootfile-name "autocfg_hp.cfg"
   default-router "10.0.1.254"
   lease infinite
   static-bind ip 10.0.1.1 255.255.255.0 mac xxxxxx-xxxxxx
   tftp-server server-ip 10.0.5.1
exit

Any thoughts about it?

Hello rafaelmedeiros,

apparently the device ignores the TFTP server parameter and attempts to download the file from the DHCP server, it looks like a bug. I would contact the HPE support for this.
