Issue Description

What is the mechanism for an ME60 to process DHCP server status changes when it tries to obtain an IP address from the server?

Handling Process


Root Cause



In V100R006C05, the ME60 processes the DHCP server status change using a 3-minute mechanism similar to the RADIUS server. To be specific, when a DHCP user goes online, an ME60 sends a request packet to a DHCP server. If failing to receive a response from the DHCP server within 25s, the ME60 sets the status of the server to DOWN and sends a request packet to another up server if a new DHCP user goes online. The status of the server becomes up within 3 minutes and the ME60 will send request packets to it.
