A DHCP relay profile specifies one or more external DHCP or DHCPv6 servers. When you create a DHCP/DHCPv6 relay service, you must specify a DHCP relay profile.


Verify that Manager mode is selected in the NSX Manager user interface. See NSX Manager. If you do not see the Policy and Manager mode buttons, see Configure User Interface Settings.

  2. Select Networking > DHCP > Relay Profiles > Add.
  3. Enter a name and optional description.
  4. Enter one or more external DHCP/DHCPv6 server addresses.
