We are facing DHCP relay issue on 4500X (VSS) core switch. The topology is simple, all the access switches has been connected to core on MEC ether channel (L2 trunk, no VLAN/VTP pruning). The DHCP server resided in data center on VM. FYI, It was working fine on Old core (6509)
The problem we are facing is we are not getting an IP from DHCP server. The SVI configured on core switch have IP helper address configured.
However, for testing I created a SVI on access switch (luckily they were 3750's) and put helper address on access SVI and it worked fine.
So its look like 4500x some how not doing DHCP relay. BTW, no DHCP snooping is enable.
I have tried multiple codes 3.5.3 & 3.4.4 but no luck.
I appreciate your feedback and help here.
Thanks for your reply. you mean service DHCP enable on core switch ? yes it is enabled.
sorry I don't have topology at this time.
Check the layer 2 topography and run show spanning tree summary. If you run this from the edge switch ensure it is not the root switch, then run show spanning tree vlan xxx.
Check the right ports are trunking the vlan up and post the results back here.
could fix your Catalyst 4500X-SFP16+ dhcp relay problem?
I faced something similar I believe, running 3.5.3 code:
Int vlan X
ip dhcp-helper XXXXX
int vlan Z
ip dhcp-helper ZZZZZ
now Voice phones on Vlan Z could not receive DHCP IPs where Vlan X and could therefore not register, clients in the data vlan could receive dhcp addresses. After Approx 1 hour 3 o clock in the morning I had to revert back, having the Cat 6500 performing the SVI termination again, rolling back on the Cat4500X as a pure L2 switch again..
can you remember what your issues where, if fixed?
Can you upload the output from "show ip route"
Also include the output from "ping 172.18.2.12 source 10.50.105.254"
Your config looks okay I also don't see any option 82 relay enabled either.
you could try debugging it to see whats is happening.
