DHCP snooping - moving hosts

I have tested this, but results are different in each case..

What if I have a host connected to port 1 (IP-MAC), and is in snooping binding database..  and now someone moves him to Port 2...  I have snooping, DAI, and SG configured

DHCP snooping binding would still have his MAC and IP in port 1  - and would it release it automatically, and move to port 2 ?? 

actually i tested it here, and it automatically moved iit, and a couple of times it didn't... the PC was blocked off port 2, by Source guard and i had to clear snooping table, and remove source guard to make it work. 

Can someone clarify this - if a switch sees the SAME MAC and IP coming from a different port - It should allow it, and rebind the snooping table right ??  The issue is when either the IP or the MAC changes in the binding, where they are blocked (and i agree to it)

Hi,

Hi,

In the case when the PC was blocked, did the PC do an ip address renewal or did it try to continue using the ip address? I  am guessing the PC does not renew the ip address and this causes SG to deny access. Usually when you move PC from one port to another, it should work fine as long as the PC does a DHCP lease/renew

Thanks

John

The PC was behind the phone..

The PC was behind the phone.. So, when the phone was disconnected, obviously, both the phone and PC was trying to get an IP address.It wasnt trying to get a new IP.. but would start the DHCP process, and get the same IP.

Does Source guard allow CDP packets ? I know the PHone uses voice vlans, thro CDP...
