Sometimes no DHCP reply > switch problem ?
Posted on 2014-04-25
Weird problem here ... some of my machines, at times, don't immediately get an IP address after booting (and thus can't find the AD etc). Even if connected to a port on the switch directly! While it works fine, at the same time, for others. I've tried to exclude several things and it *seems* like the switch, or some ports on the switch, are the problem?
I've got the following errors on some ports on the switch (HP ProCurve 4204):
- excessive broadcasts
- high collision or drop rate
- excessive CRC/alignment errors
Could any of those be the cause for those connectivity problems?
Thanks a lot!
