Hi, just wondering what DHCP VPN solution people use for their DNS resolution on VPN remote client.
Currently, we use Cisco ASA and Vital QIP with option 61(client ID).

Initially, Cisco ASA did not support QIP DHCP, but they came up with their workaround as below:
https://tools.cisco.com/quickview/bug/CSCsr96775 - this is published on May 2014.

Above workaround suggests to use DHCP proxy with ClientID feature. However, as [QIP DHCP known bugs and fixes] states, it looks like some of VPN DHCP related bugs not even scheduled to fix yet - The latest bug doc is written 12-1-2014.

How do you support DHCP and DNS resolution for VPN remote users ?
Please share any thought and advice. I am having lots of trouble to utilize Cisco ASA dhcp proxy with Vital QIP.

My ASA hands out the IP addresses. I have VPN profiles to determine which address pool the user gets an address from. For example, regular users get addresses from one pool, and power users get addresses from another pool.

What kevinhsieh said.  And within the group configuration I define whatever DNS servers the inside individuals use.

Some version of QIP DHCP have MAC address/Client ID related issues. It would not show in the typical DHCP request traffic but as it gets more DHCP request loads from ASA ,using DHCP proxy, it eventually crashes QIP DB - this known issue has been fixed in the latest QDHCP module. Also, do not forget to turn on your Client ID feature on the DHCP server this is more-like server level change.
