OK, I have a very strange problem that I will attempt to outline. Here is the situation:
I have a DHCP server that exist on about 10 inside VLANs. It is trunked into all VLANs that it services with different scopes assigned for each VLAN.
What is happening is everyday a few users (there is no pattern) will complain of not being able to get to internet or email. They can ping everything on their VLAN and even things on other internal VLANs. The problem is getting across the ASA (it is a 5540). The Exchange server sits in the DMZ and obviously the internet is on the outside.
To fix this I was originally finding out what address was assigned to the node, excluding it from the scope, and having the node pull a new address. This worked but I do not want to have to keep doing this. I then began thinking that this was an ARP problem and I have twice so far gone in and done a "clear arp" on the ASA when I have users with this problem and this fixes the problem too...
Any ideas on this one?
