dhcp_response probe for monitoring QIP DHCP server

Discussion created by technik on Jun 13, 2013



we try to monitor a QIP DHCP server from a Nimsoft robot with the dhcp_response probe. After starting the probe we saw three retries of DCHO DISCOVER but the DHCP server did not answer. A network trace confirm this - no response from DHCP server.

A trace within the QIP server showed that the discover request will not processes because the server (running dhcp_response) has already an IP address.


Has anyone the dhcp_response probe running against a QIP DHCP server or could post some hints.
