I am new to ICX. I have SPR08061a code running and have Ruckus R610 APs plugged in to multiple ports. The AP are configured for 4 VLANs via 4 SSIDs (based on OS running on end device and a guest network). I have my main ICX 7150 plugged into my Internet router (Sonicwall) and also back to server room with a second ICX 7150 wherer DHCP server is. Question is how do I set up DHCP IP helper so wireless clients each get the appropriate IP from the DHCP server?
Whatever device hosts the gateways for the subnets is the device that needs the ip-helper setup. You don't mention what that is so that's about as much as anyone can tell you. Depending on device it may also be called a DHCP Relay Agent. All you should have to do is give it the IP address of your DHCP server
Thanks for the reply. I am still building this replacement structure for the old over-worked network, so I have options. My thought was to use the new main ICX-7150 as the gateway for the new VLANs (10.56.2.250, 10.56.3.250), and use the existing networks DHCP on 10.56.0.x as the DHCP for all 3 networks. VLAN 2 and 3 are tied to router-interfaces ve 2 and ve 3, so am I interpreting this correctly? #interface ve 2 #ip helper-address 10.56.0.x #exit #interface ve 3 #ip helper-address 10.56.0.x #exit #wr mem ?
could you show the network diagramm. It is a litle bit unclear why do you need a DHCP-relay. You must confgure a helper addres to forward a client broadcast request for a UDP application when the client and DHCP-server are on different networks. Do I understand correct that you have two ICX 7150 and both of them have L3 image? If your Router have all VLANs in the routing table you don't need to configure a DHCP-Relay.
