The scenario is in certain area, there are a lotof users connected to indoor AP. Average 17 STA per AP. Each users have basedspeed 5M. And there are peak hour, some of the users hard to get connected andneed to wait non-peak hour ( e.g. 4am) to get connected and do download things.

Unreasonable configuration of DHCP cause STA can't get the ip-2650149-1

Topology is:

Alarm InformationA large numberof wireless users cant receive an IP address by DHCP
 Unreasonable configuration of DHCP cause STA can't get the ip-2650149-2

1 Customer user the DHCP servers, we check the ip pool find the there have many free address.
2 Trace both from the switch and the ap find dhcp packtes drop random
3 Check the accress switch configuration,found there have command of dhcp snooping.
4 Check the accress switch dhcp snooping table found DHCP snoopingbinding table is exhausted in the access switch

Root Cause
DHCP snooping binding table is exhausted in the access switch                                     
Configuration the command“dhcp snooping enable no-user-binding”from the all of the access switch                                                                                                   
SuggestionsFor WLAN users not need configuration the dhcp snooping from the access switch, because from the AP already enable this.

So if we apply the solution:

Configuration the command “dhcp snooping enable no-user-binding” from the all of the access switch
the problem will disappear permanently? :)
