DHCP Reservation on BR200 Deployment

  • Updated 3 years ago

I'm trying to use the DHCP reservation feature in 6.6r1 HiveOS for the BR200.

-DHCP server is enabled on the network policy

-I've created a spreadsheet with the items filled in an identical fashion to what is shown on the help doc. When I upload it, it does not reject or ignore any line items from the spreadsheet

-I performed a complete configuration update as stated is necessary in the help document

-When I select the router from the monitor tab and scroll down to where dhcp reservation options are, it states, "Client reservation details are currently not available because DHCP reservations has not been activated on the device. You must first upload a network policy with the proper DHCP reservation information."

Is there anyone out there that is successfully using this feature that might shed some light on how to enable it?

Thanks Nick. These are the instructions I used to get to where I am, and unfortunately DHCP reservations are still not functional. 

Wonder if there's anyone out there using the feature that might be able to share how they made it work?

Have you checked what's in the resulting configuration that's pushed to the BR200?

You're interested primarily in:
interface <mgtx|mgtx.y> dhcp-server ip-binding <ip_addr> <mac_addr>
There's also:
show interface <mgtx|mgtx.y> dhcp-server ip-binding
To look through at all dhcp related commands:
show cmds | include dhcp
Then have an explore! :)

If the static ip-mac binding reservations are missing, there's something going awry within HM due to a configuration issue or an issue within HM itself.

Fantastic. Thanks Nick, these look like the tools I need to figure this out.
