Since these meant for designed to use in the environment, Most DC environment has already had DNS/DHCP in place.

Hi @hashimwajid1 

Indeed, there is no native DHCP Server in the NX-OS.

HOWEVER, let's not forget that NX-OS is very versatile when it comes to programmability and automation.

Without further due, you can find here an example how you can use guest shell to install and run a DHCP server on NXOS:

Stay safe,
