IPv4 Fixed address

Hi there!

 

I have created a number of IPv4 Fixed addresses under an IPv4 scope.  The address is assigned as expected when the matching MAC address requests an address.  The issue is NO gateway is assigned to the client rendering the client pretty much cut off.  Any ideas on why this would be.  I have tried adding an explicit router to the IPV4 DHCP options on the individual address but that doesn't seem to work either?

 

Thanks

As long as the router is defined at the Grid, Grid member, Network or Fixed Address levels, which it sounds like you have done, then this option should be passed on to the client in its request as long as the client is asking for that option.

 

To get an idea on why the client is not getting this, it would be useful to view your DHCP configuration file, as well as a Traffic Capture from the DHCP server handling the clients requests, run while the client is requesting a lease. Also be sure that services have been restarted so that any pending changes will take effect.

Many thanks - it was the restart of services which was required.  Seems a bit extreme though for a minor change.

 

Thanks
