DHCP routing issue with civi2001
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It looks like the dhcp relay is misrouting requests from the new civi2001 server. The symptom is that the dhcp server sees the dhcpdiscover request coming from rather than Here's a dhcpdiscover request from a host that works correctly in the same vlan (frack-fundraising-codfw):

DHCPDISCOVER from 4c:d9:8f:a0:19:aa via

Here's the one from civi2001:

DHCPDISCOVER from 4c:d9:8f:aa:77:b4 via network no free leases

Papaul double-checked and the interfaces are in frack-fundraising-codfw as they should be. I confirmed the dhcp configuration and tested virtualbox, with the DHCP request routed via it responds correctly.

Configuration looks good on the switch and router. This will need to be live troubleshooted, when the client is sending DHCP requests.

First step is to run
show ethernet-switching table interface ge-0/0/14
show ethernet-switching table | match 4c:d9:8f:aa:77:b4 on the switch to make sure the host is going in the proper vlan.

show arp no-resolve | match 4c:d9:8f:aa:77:b4
On the router for the same thing.

A tcpdump capture might be useful as well on the DHCP server (

At bootup that MAC shows up on ge-1/0/9

ayounsi@fasw-c-codfw> show ethernet-switching table | match 4c:d9:8f:aa:77:b4
