NSX-T in Practice: DHCP

In this post we are going to configure DHCP on one of our segment to handle DHCP requests from one of our VMs. Let’s have a look at how this is done. 

NSX Manager > Switching > Switches > Add 

Let’s now setup our DHCP config

Navigate to DDI > DHCP > Server Profiles > Add

Next is to create the DHCP Server. Click on Servers > Add

Click on the newly created DHCP Server and add an IP pool to it

IP Pools > Add

Now we need to attach the DHCP Server to our logical switch

Navigate to Switching > Actions > Attach to a DHCP server

Let’s now test our setup. Web-dhcp is the VM you will be using, it’s configured to get it’s ip from DHCP.

Let’s give a quick reboot then check it’s TCP/IP configuration

We have lift off! The VM has successfully made a DHCP request and received a lease! 

I hope this post was helpful. Thank you for reading.
