Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

The dhcp select relay command applies to DHCP relay agents. If the DHCP server and client are on the same network segment, they can directly communicate with each other using DHCP. In this case, no DHCP relay agent is needed. If the DHCP server and client are on different network segments, the DHCP relay function must be enabled to forward DHCP messages.


The DHCP function has been enabled using the dhcp enable command in the system view.

Follow-up Tasks

  • To ensure that a DHCP relay agent can forward DHCP packets to a DHCP server, run the dhcp relay server-select or dhcp relay server-ip command on the DHCP relay-enabled interface to configure the correct IP address of the DHCP server.
  • To ensure that a DHCP server can forward DHCP packets to a DHCP relay agent, you must configure a route to the DHCP relay agent on the DHCP server.
  • If multiple DHCP relay agents exist on the network, run the dhcp relay detect enable command to enable user entry detection on the DHCP relay agent to prevent the IP addresses assigned to clients from conflicting with those of other clients.


  • If the DHCP relay and DHCP server functions are simultaneously configured on an interface, only the DHCP server function takes effect.

  • The DHCP server must select an IP address in the same network segment with the DHCP relay agent from the global address pool to ensure that the DHCP client obtains an IP address on the local network segment. No interface address pool can be configured on the interface that connects the DHCP server and relay agent.
