Max number of DHCP servers?

Hi all,


I have a PA-220 with PAN-OS 8.0.6. I run multiple VLANs on it and have configured 5 DHCP servers on 5 different VLAN interfaces. Now I'm wondering why this setup even works because when I read the PA-220 feature overview it says that only 3 DHCP servers are supported on this device.

See "Address Assignment" on,pa-500


How is this limit enforced? Any explanation why I successfully run 5 DHCP servers?


In another thread talking about the PA-500 they say it's kind of a "soft limit":


Best Regards,

Hi Denis


yes , this limit is not hard-enforced, but it is not supported (if you reach out to support they'll advice to remove 2)
