I am tasked with configuring the DHCP server to auto assign IPs to each department. Each department is in its own VLAN. The only IPs that are being assigned right now are 169.x.x.x and I am not sure why. Can anybody help?
what instructions are you following ? I have opened your file, there are numerous misconfigurations which will take several hours to fix. Your DHCP pools are misconfigured, and the layer 2 switch is used as a layer 3 switch, with several Vlan interfaces configured that can never work as true layer 3 interfaces.
Post the full text of the instructions you are following.
