I am trying to add a DHCP server to a switch (config in text). The DHCP server is not responding on the VLAN interface. Does anyone know a way to resolve this? “show dhcp” server gives the following:


IPv4 DHCP server is inactive
DNS server(s):
Lease duration: 0 days 2 hours 0 minutes
Active leases: 0
IPv4 DHCP interface status:
Interface Status
————— ——

Range: to
DNS server(s):
Default gateway address:
Active leases: 0

Hi Christopher,


Thank you for writing to the forum. In the config snippet, the "dhcp server ipv4" is missing under interface VLAN 10. Here, I am assuming that you require VLAN 10 to lease out the IP addresses based on IP addressing scheme.

More about the configuration can be seen here:

If it does not work, please share the output of:

Hope that helps,

Thank you,
