I'm not familiar with these switches so unsure what the issue is or how to troubleshoot further. Any advice on what is happening here? Is this somehow by design? Is there a workaround or option I need to configure? Hitting a brick wall here.
when you clear the binding, is the MAC address displayed the actual real, physical MAC address of the laptop ?
It is kind of hard to troubleshoot this, but you might want to try and enable DHCP snooping and (DHCP Relay if applicable) on the SG350X (page 275 of the attached guide). Enable one interface and see if that problem disappears...
Yes the MAC address is the physical MAC, I just compared the one I noted earlier to the 'ipconfig /all' result after the physical machine completed the build process and they are one and same MAC.
Never done the snooping/DHCP relay before but will read your link and see if I can enable them.
Thanks. Will report back.
curious to know what will work, as this seems uncharted territory. I could not find a single document on how to configure the SG350X in combination with MDT...
Hi, yes, not a lot of info out there to go on is there!?
I was unable to enable the DHCP relay option as the switch is already the DHCP server (It will not permit enabling if the DHCP server is the switch). I enabled DHCP snooping globally and set all interfaces to Trusted, but this made no difference. I was unsure why this feature for DHCP security would have a positive effect anyway. From reading about this it appears to be used to prevent MITM attacks with rogue DHCP servers. Perhaps I'm overlooking something fundamental here?
I think I will try changing the DHCP server back to the ASA router this evening and see if I can enable an IP Helper on the router. I read that this is the preferred method for use with MDT (over DHCP Options).
