I am setting up a Sonicwall NSA 2400MX Firewall + Switch combo with multiple DHCP scopes.  I am trying to have the Sonicwall hand out an IP Address from a particular DCHP Scope based on the VLAN Tag.  

My thoughts were to to create an DCHP Option object with the VLAN ID of some of the packets and then assign the the option object to a new DHCP Scope for only clients with vlan tag specified in their packets.

Any Ideas ...not sure on setting up the option object part to look for the VLAN ID...I am using the option 132 I would believe.

the way the sonicwall assigns DHCP scopes is based on interface. on your sonicwall, go to network > interfaces. click Add and choose the X0 interface. you'll be required to give it a VLAN ID and subnet. when you save it, the sonicwall will create a dhcp scope for that new X0 interface/vlan you created.

the sonicwall needs to manage the vlans in order to assign an IP based off of the vlan.

does that help?
