DHCP Relay does not work in custom-VR, if the custom-VR is not the default-VR



Article ID: KB11591 KB Last Updated: 19 Jun 2010Version: 3.0
DHCP Relay does not work in custom-VR, but there is a work-around
By design, DHCP relay does not work in a custom-VR if the custom-VR is not the default-VR. 

'debug dhcp' output reports the following:
## 2008-04-30 02:11:13 : ip dst unreachable in vr trust-vr
## 2008-04-30 02:11:13 : DHCP: Relay request from to, ret
= -10994

This is because all DHCP packets from Juniper firewalls are treated as self packets & self packets will be generated only from the default-VR.

Workaround: If you do not want the custom-vr to be made as the default-vr, then add a route to the DHCP server in the default-vr.
