Hi. I created new a few new Vlans. I now want to have the clients get their IP address from a DHCP server that is on a diferent vlan. But they are not getting the address. I know the DHCP server is set up correctly so I must be missing some thing in the Vlan config

Any ideas??

Thanks

You need to add a helper address for you DHCP server to the VLAN interfaces:

interface vlan2
ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
ip helper-address 192.168.0.10    <---use the IP address of the DHCP server.

interface vlan3
ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0
ip helper-address 192.168.0.10

interface vlan4
ip address 192.168.3.1 255.255.255.0
ip helper-address 192.168.0.10

Hi kdog3445,

VLANs completely seperate the networks, and will limit the broadcast domain for all the devices.
This means that your DHCP server doesn't see the broadcast IP request from the clients on the other VLAN.

To make this work, you'll need to do something to allow the DHCP server to "see" the clients on the other LAN.  Obvious options are:
1 - Install another network card in the server, and plug it into the other VLAN
2 - Use a router of some description to route the traffic between the VLANs

Does that make sense?

You have a scope on your DHCP server for the 10.100.40.0/23 subnet, right?
