The HP switch must be connected to the network where the DHCP server is located.

In our example, the DHCP server IP address is 192.168.100.10 and is located on the 192.168.100.0/24 network.

Create a Virtual interface to connect the HP Switch to the DHCP server network.

In our example, the following virtual interface was created: Vlan-interface100.

The Vlan-interface100 interface is using the IP address 192.168.100.1.

The HP switch must be connected to the network where the DHCP clients are located.

In our example, the DHCP clients are located on the VLAN 200 which should use the 192.168.200.0/24 network.

Create a Virtual interface to connect the HP Switch to the DHCP clients network.

In our example, the following virtual interface was created: Vlan-interface200.

The Vlan-interface200 interface is using the IP address 192.168.200.1.

After registering the DHCP server, you need to configure the Vlan interface connected to the DHCP clients.

In our example, we are going to redirect DHCP requests from the VLAN 200 to the DHCP server 192.168.100.100 located on the VLAN 100.

In our example, the DHCP server 192.168.100.100 received the server group ID 0.

Enable DHCP relay on the interface connected to the DHCP clients.

Select the Server group ID of your DHCP server.

In our example, the DHCP server 192.168.100.100 received the server group ID 0.
