Configure Single DHCP pool on multiple switches

By m_abideen ·
am going to add another site to existing network, Additional site will eb conencted by means of MPLS. ethernet cable from MPLS router will connect to one of the switch

i will have 4 2960 switches there connected each other

Single VLAN

i want to configure these Switches as DHCP Servers

I am able to configure succesfully the DHCP pool by using ip dhcp pool command


My Question are:


DO i need to create DHCP pool on each swichtes?

Do i need to configure the same command on all swotches or i can configure one switch as DHCP and computer conencted to other switches will take the IP from this switch.


My objectives are:


The computers connected to all switches canget the IP address thorugh DHCP


Thx and Regards

DHCP Pools

You do NOT want multiple DHCP pools. The each have a separate database that tracks IP assignment so you'd end up with multiple systems with the same IP.

I am not a Cisco Network Engineer, but I believe you will need to set the VLAN designation on each switch port, although it may default to VLAN1. Check out the VLAN config docs at the link below.
