Can you please help me on how to install a DHCP server on a multi segment environment?
One Center Switch (Inter-Segment Routing), each interface of the center switch is set to be the gateway of each segment.
A Server switch is connected to the Center Switch. (DHCP server is connected to the Server Switch)
A Distribution Switch is connected to each interface of the Center Switch
On the Distribution Switch there are Edge Switch Connected.
All desktop and other devices connect to the Edge Switch.
Please help me on how to setup the Center Switch to forward the DHCP request to the DHCP Server, and also on how to setup the DHCP Server to distribute the correct IP on segment where the desktop connect.
* All are cisco based switch

Hmm, the only way i can see this working is if the router sends a directed unicast traffic to the DHCP server. This must be then somehow being shown on the DHCP server as coming from that subnet so the correct dhcp zone can be used in the dhcp reply.
Cannot be bothered to actually read the dhcp server bit, too tired tonight, lol.
Anyhow, this is quite a good explination of the ip-helper command
