HP A4800G – DHCP relay

This article isn’t very difficult and spectacular. It is just for me as a quick note to configure DHCP relaying on a HP A4800G switch. The configuration of this type of switch is a little different compared to Cisco and/or legacy HP ProCurve switches. The following steps are required to configure DHCP relaying:

System View: return to User View with Ctrl+Z.
[SW01]dhcp enable
[SW01]dhcp relay server-group <group id> ip <DHCP server>
[SW01]interface Vlan-interface24
[SW01]dhcp select relay
[SW01]dhcp relay server-select <group id>

As said before this is very simple. But for some reason I always forget the DHCP enable and DHCP select relay configuration options.
