MS DHCP Server in a VLAN Environment

By arshij ·
I am segmenting my LAN in to 7-8VLANs, including VLAN 1 which hosts most of the servers and DHCP. I have tried to configure Cisco switches using "IP Helper-Address" & "IP DHCP Relay" commands but no success. Can someone share his experience with us to resolve this issue?

sunu is right, gotta have a layer 3 device [router] to "route" traffic between vlans

Cisco's term for this is "router on a stick"
