Usage Guidelines

The DHCP snooping feature is disabled by default. DHCP snooping can be enabled or disabled on VLANs.

If you have not enabled the DHCP snooping feature, commands related to DCHP snooping are unavailable.

Dynamic ARP inspection and IP Source Guard depend upon the DHCP snooping feature.

If you disable the DHCP snooping feature, the device discards all configuration related to DHCP snooping configuration, including the following features:

IP Source Guard

If you want to turn off DHCP snooping and preserve configuration related to DHCP snooping, disable DHCP snooping globally with the no ip dhcp snooping command.

Access-control list (ACL) statistics are not supported if the DHCP snooping feature is enabled.

Examples
