Defaults   None

Access   CLI

History   Command introduced in Version 2.2.3.

Usage   Using the vrouter-packet-relay command configures the Layer3 interface which receives the client’s DHCP broadcast. You can change the broadcast request into a unicast and send it to a centralized DHCP server that is located to a different subnet in your network. The unicast DHCP request is normally routed to the destination DHCP Server within the network, even if the server is far away from the DHCP client.

Examples  To remove the configuration with a DHCP server with the IP address,, and vRouter interface eth0, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > vrouter-packet-relay-show vrouter-name vrouter-dhcp forward-proto dhcp forward-ip nic eth0
