Problems with DHCP options 43 and 120 relay trough Cisco ASA (For Lync Phones)
We are trying to set up the correct options for Lync Phones, and we are using a windows server 2008 Standard as a dhcp server.
The DHCP server is located on one VLAN, and have been running for many years, so the ip delegation works perfectly.
I see that all the added options are correct. Correct CertPath, correct servernames and correct portnumber.
But i cant seem to get the DHCP ACK with the sip parameters (option 43 and 120) to traverse our Cisco ASA. If i capture the traffic, i see the inform message going from the client, and its being forwarded across the asa to our DHCP server.
And i also see the ACK, being sent from our dhcp server with the option 43 and 120 set back towards the client. But the packet is not being picket up on the client machine.
I capture with allow access lists. (ive also checked deny access lists, but they doesnt pick up any denied packets).
if i run: debug dhcp event (and packet), i get this:
DHCPD: setting giaddr to 10.80.4.1.
dhcpd_forward_request: request from CLIENT.MAC.ADDR forwarded to 10.80.2.10.
DHCPD/RA: Punt 10.80.2.10/17152 --> ClientMachine/17152 to CP
I have dealt with Cisco and they have acknowdeldge there is a bug in version 8.6(1) and recommend updating to 9.0(3), or to 9.1(2).
We are running a ASA5515 with 8.6.1
This is from their bug tracker:
ASA - dhcp relay - bindings are not created for DHCP Informs
Symptom: When acting as a DHCP relay, ASA doesn't forward the DHCP ACK from the dhcp server in response to a Relayed DHCP Inform. The output of 'debug dhcprelay packet' may show the following:DHCPRA: dhcp_relay_agent_receiver:can't find bindingConditions: This is because the ASA did not build a DHCP Relay binding for the original DHCP Inform request.Workaround: n/aMore Info:
