Assigning a DHCP address to the management interface from your firewall

We have setup a specific vlan and would like to receive an ip address from our firewall to the management interface but it still does not change the IP address. We have configured everything that we could for our specific vlan and the management interface even says the vlan. We have it set to use dhcp with no failback as the option but it does not seem to change the IP. Any thoughts?

if the DHCP server is in a diiferent vlan or has to cross subnets to reach the mangement vlan then you would need some sort of dhcp relay agent or what is known as ip helper addresses that takes the DHCP requests and forwards them to the DHCP server. It really depends on the equipment you have and your setup.

Is the relay agent on aerohive's configuration page?

typically it is found on switches and routers that switch or route packets from one network to another. or from one vlan to another.

It does not appear that the management interface is pulling an IP address from our VLAN which is not the default VLAN but one that we created.
