comment “dhcpd failed” error when starting DHCP server
I have idea about trunk and vlans. But my problem remains the same, i.e. both the virtual DHCP machines want to give IPs of their network to the Physical bridged interface. How can I resolve this problem first? Is it possible to slit the physical NIC e.g 'eth1:0' in virtual interfaces and still VMs can recognize that interface?

Yes, I have already created VLANS in switch and I can get IPs for the 1st network. But, When I bridge the 2nd network to my physicl NIC, nothing works. As both VMS (DHCP servers) are trying to give IP to the physical NIC interface connected to switch.

Sorry. I do not fully understand ur reply. If u could explain more in detail and from scratch. If I am creating 2 separate subnets then why should I create Vlans? I mean Vlans will be created in switch so specific ports can be assigned their subnets. Main concern is, how to bridge two VMs (separate networks) to one physical NIC.

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, both VMs are on the same host.

Thank u.. I understand what you are saying. But my project involves running two VMs as server, which in future might be separate servers with other applications installed in them. First phase is to get up and running the DHCP servers on single machine.

comment “dhcpd failed” error when starting DHCP server
Yes, but i am still not sure if this addresses my problem. I have two DHCP servers as virtual machines and I need them to be briged to one physical NIC. So that I can connect my switch to that physical NIC port. Problem here is, how to bridge one physical nic to two virtual NICs, both is separate subnets.

That Physical NIC is then connected to a manageable switch (having vlans) for clients to get IP from their respective subnets.

comment “dhcpd failed” error when starting DHCP server
I am trying to bridge connect two DHCP servers (virtual machines) in different subnets to one physical NIC. But, my first DHCP server won't start unless I assign an IP to NIC interface which is bridged to physical NIC. And My physical NIC also gets a IP of that subnet. So how can I make my 2nd DHCP server run on same physical NIC?

It is already in the bridged mode. Even then the NIC card on physical machine gets IP from the DHCP.

No subnet declaration for eth1 (no IPv4 addresses) Ignoring requests on eth1. If this is not what you want, please write a subnet declaration in your dhcpd.conf file for the network segment to which interface eth1 is attached.
