Gbe2c and BOOTP?

I cannot manage to have any of two new Gbe2c switches get IP from BOOTP, no matter how much resetting and power off/on I do.

I can see in the DHCP server log that there is no broadcast from the switch.

Had to give up and make a serial connection to the switches and configure IP manually.

Did anyone succeed in this?

We have 12 of these, and neither have had any problems with that.

Are you sure your DHCP-server accepts bootp requests?

How are the ports configured on the switch that the gbe2's connect to?

I found out that (in Windows server?) BOOTP only works if there is a reservation :-)

Normally I do use reservations for my Gbe2 switches, that is why I never saw this limitation.

Thanks,

You may want to make note that BOOTP only works if there is a reservation.

Also, please make sure you are running the newly released 1.1 code for the GbE2c switch as this will also allow full intigration with the OA.
