DHCP Relay Problem


R

romo

Hello,

I've configured RRAS to route between two subnets, but I can't get DHC
relay to work.

The network consists of subnet A and subnet B with network addresse
192.168.168.0/24 and 192.10.10.0/24.

A W2K Small Business Server on subnet A (192.168.168.9)is running DHC
with scopes for the two subnets.

A W2K Server with NICS on the two subnets (192.168.168.58 an
192.10.10.1) is running RRAS and is configured as a lan router. I
addition, I've installed DHCP relay with the address of the DHCP serve
located on subnet A and an interface on subnet B.

I have a single Win98 computer attached to subnet B and I've configure
tcp/ip to obtain an address automatically, however, it fails to obtai
an IP address.

Using W2K Network Monitor to capture the DHCP packets on the DHC
server and the RRAS server show me the following:

The DHCP Discover broadcast by the Win98 machine is being received b
the DHCP relay; the DHCP Discover sent by the DHCP relay is bein
received by the DHCP server; and the DHCP Offer sent by the DHCP serve
is being received by the RRAS server on the interface connected t
subnet A.

The DHCP Offer reflects the information in the scope for subnet B.

In addition, I checked the DHCP relay agent interface on subnet B show
the following:
Relay Mode: Enabled
Requests Received: 44
Replies Received: 0
Requests Discarded: 11
Replies Discarded: 0

I also see that I'm getting Event ID: 30022 "IPBOOTP was unable t
receive an incoming message on the local interface with IP addres
192.10.10.1. The data is the error code." and Data 0000: 38 27 00 00
Unfortunately, a google search doesn't yield anything helpful.

Apart from the DHCP problem TCP/IP appears to be functioning normall
on the Win98 computer. In fact, if I manually configure the Win9
computer everything works just great.

TIA for your help.

Kadir,

Can you elaborate please?

I've read the KB article, but since the RRAS server appears to log o
normally I don't see how this applies.

The error message you noticed in the eventvwr logs means the packet size is
larger than the buffer size. As in your setup The DHCP request passes
through a Windows 2000 DHCP relay agent and The DHCP response packet is, in
most liklyhood, larger than 576 bytes, the 2000 server is dropping the
response and hence you are not able to see the response coming to the other
side of the network (as noticed by you from your netmon logs). Please try
the hotfix as suggested in the KB by following the guidelines given in KB.
In case, you still see the issue, we will try to investigate further but as
of now, it seems to be a known problem.

Thanks & Regards,

Kadir,

I just installed the hotfix and dhcp relay is now working!

The DHCP Offer was 656 bytes and I guess that was the problem.

Thanks,
Bob Montgomery
