No DHCP for Virtual Machines over Host Wifi - HPE OfficeConnect Switch 1920

Hello,

We have an HPE OfficeConnect Switch 1920 switch connected to a Fortigate Firewall. There are several VLANs configured: 

  • 10 -Trust LAN/Trust Wifi
  • 20 - Wifi Guest
  • 30 - Security
  1. Our wireless access points are configured to tag traffic from either the Trust or Guest network and it works perfect for our internal and guest user devices. I have a virtual machine running on my Mac host and it refuses to get an IP address (Bridge mode, IP should be on same subnet as Trusted network) when I am using the Wi-Fi connection on my Mac. When I hardwire it (trusted network)  it works fine and when I go to other locations using my Wi-Fi it works fine. It's only not working at the office on Wi-Fi.
  2. I did some packet sniffing determined the host is sending out a DHCP request, the firewall is sending back an acknowledgement, but it's never reaching the client. Somewhere on the switch it's being lost for some reason.
  3. If I set a static IP for the Virtual machine it also works fine when using the Mac Host on Wi-Fi. This is unfeasible though as a solution for all users.

Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
