DHCP Clients not getting leases with Cisco VLAN

I am absolutely stumped on this one.  I have a 3650 core switch with a whole heap of 2960s switches either directly connected or daisy chained one deep from the core.

We are transitioning there network into VLAN's and we created a VLAN for there phones to move into by Creating VLAN 3.  VTP Status is showing the results across all switches make a change on core clients get the updates.

However we have a Microsoft Hype-V server with a NIC dedicated to VLAN 3 running DHCP to offer the phones a ip address.   Problem is that some of the phones get a lease on VLAN 3 and these are usually on the directly connected switches, but the Phones on the outer switches do not.

I ran test on the default VLAN to see if a computer would pick up a lease on the out edge switches and it does, but if you plug the phone in it does not.  Bring the phone to the core or directly connected switches and it picks up a lease straight away.

Can anyone assist I have racked my brains trying to solve this one.

This vlan has just been setup as a basic VLAN with a DHCP server in it.  The Phones get a lease from DHCP with directly connected switches but anthying any further away and it does not work.

1) ensure that the switch port connected to DHCP Server is in trunk mode or in vlan 3
2) for testing puposes for now disable dhcp-snooping and arp inspection
3) ensure that ports connected to phones:
interface -----
 switchport access vlan 1
 switchport mode access
switchport voice vlan 3
spanning-tree portfast

DHCP is connected to the Core Switch

The DHCP servers switch port is in VLan 3 as I said it is a Hyper-V host with several servers on it the DHCP interface is dedicated to VLAN 3

is disable DHCP snooping and arp inspection just on core or all switches

Will try the new config on ports.

so configure the port that is connected to Hyper-v as trunk encap dot1q and disable DHCP snooping and arp inspection for all switches from phones to dhcp server just for Testing purposes and try the new config on ports.

Problem ended up being Spanning-tree root guard on the trunk ports.  When I ran the sh int trunk you could see trunks not carrying the VLAN information.  In the end I changed this option and it started working.

The issue was spanning tree root guard and once I ran no spanning tree it worked.
