I suggest you call our Support and open a case.  They can help diagnose the issue.



One of our customer is complaining for the same issue: They were using DHCP on windows servers before migrating to PaloAlto 3020 PanOS 5.1 and now they are complaining that DHCP offer is much more slower than before...

Interfaces are set to 1Gb/FD and switches didn't change.



We had this exact same problem... the problem is that the PAN DHCP server doesn't respond with a NACK when a client requests an IP out of the DHCP server's scope (which is in the DHCP RFC as a "should implement" if I remember from my bug report)

PANOS 4.1.13 and PANOS 5.0.4 has a fix for the DHCP slowness.
