    Are there any errors on the switches regarding the port this system is using? Sometimes they get fussy about VMs running as DHCP servers as the MAC addresses don't match. This is especially true if your expecting your switches to do DHCP relay.

    If you give a PC on the same subnet a static IP address can you ping the DHCP server?

    I presume the DHCP scope is authorised? And that DNS is working correctly too.
