I removed interface ether9 of my RG493G, from bridge. Then assigned this physical interface an ip address and then created dhcp scope using the wizard. Process completes, but dhcp server comes out as invalid.
main reason, I read is that if there is no IP address assigned to the interface used for dhcp scope or if that interface is part of bridge and then we assign dhcp scope to use the actual port, both of which are not true in my case.
If I create an interface on bridge or on a vlan interface, they come out valid. Though only vlan interface based scopes are working for me. Bridge scope even if not showing any invalid bang, does not work. And now, while trying to troubleshoot the bridge based scope, I removed a port from bridge, assigned it address and created scope for that port directly, but that does not come out invalid. I have read few posts and also wiki and I am really confused as to the reason of all these failures.
The ip address on ether9 is not overlapping any other subnet / interface address.
Any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks
