IP-address Not Obtained
|Top Previous Next|
This status means that the DS is running with DHCP enabled (DHCP (DH) setting is 1 (enabled)) and the DS hasn't yet received its IP-address from the DHCP server. The DS attempts to configure its IP-address after the powerup and won't perform its routing function until IP configuration is completed. Typically, IP configuration takes only 1-2 seconds to complete. If the DS is "stuck" in this state for much longer then this means that DHCP service may not be available on your network.
The DS Manager collects DS status information (and detects DS presence) using the Echo (X) command. IP configuration status is determined from the state of the i flag in the command response.
