I am somewhat new to Nexus and am running version 5.0(2)N2(1) on a 5020 and need to get DHCP relay setup on several VLANs.  The 'ip helper' does not appear to be supported in NXOS.  This Nexus is doing switching only.

What I am needing to do is on VLAN 11, I want to send all DHCP requests to 172.16.10.7.

Can someone help me out, mostly likely I am just missing one step?  Thanks so much.

Since the 5020 is a layer 2 switch, you need to move this function off to a router of some sort. You won't be able to accomplish this on the 5020 directly.

My VLAN assignment on my L3 switch has the helper option.  Will have to give that a try and see if it works.  Thanks...

rauenpc, thanks for the input, I was missing the actual location the helper did it work. It is all working.  Thanks again!  Have a great day.
