When enabling DHCP snooping on an EX Series switch, the following
guidelines should be kept in mind:
1. All access ports clients are typically expected to be connected to
are untrusted, and trunk ports, which the network infrastructure is
facing, are trusted by default.
2. On untrusted ports, only DHCP client-type messages such as
discoveries/requests are allowed; all other DHCP packets are
dropped. The switch also builds a DHCP snooping database on
these ports where MAC addresses, port locations, VLAN, and
IP-binding from DHCP exchanges between the client and server
are stored in the database.
3. If you move a network device from one VLAN to another, where
typically the device has to acquire a new IP address, its entry in the
DHCP snooping binding database including the VLAN ID is
It is important to remember that DAI is entirely dependent on DHCP
snooping, specifically the DHCP snooping binding database. If there is
