When a new access-points is starting up, the access-points performs in every VLAN connected a DHCP discovery. I've been told that has to do with the bonjour protocol. Is this as design?

Hi Michel, 

FWIW, take a look at the following link:-

What you're seeing is normal as it is fundamental to how Bonjour works to allow communication between VLANs. If you are seeing VLANs that you don't want to be 'Bonjour aware' simply remove this from your policy.

Hi Michel,

Yes, is by design and as intended.
