Hi all, I am looking at setting up a dhcp server for my vlans, my question is, if im using 2 multilayer switches which use vrrp, what will the source of the unicast traffic be to the dhcp server? will it be the virtual vrrp address or the actual address of the vlan ?

Hi Carl

It's the real address. And if you are using secondary IP's it's still the primary real address.

Simon

do I do this on the backup switch also ?

Yes do same on both switchs.

If the first will down the second switch still forward DHCP requests
