Running into an issue with the IAP-135s. Its a bit of a complex setup, so please let me know if I didn't explain anything ok. I have the APs on a layer 2 network with Juniper EX3300s. The EX3300's feed back to a juniper ex4500 core switch. There are Trunked VLANs for the SSIDs and a native vlan meant for the APs. DHCP is turned on for the APs and a DHCP helper ip is set on the EX4500. The problem that I am having is that only 1 AP pulls an IP address. The others (95 total) pull an IP address at boot and then drop the IP address. Is there something missing at the switch level? The IAPs are out of the box at 184.108.40.206-3.1.0 and I would like to move them all to 220.127.116.11-3.3.0 once they get an IP. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Can we connect the laptop instead of IAP to the switch to see if they were able to pull up the ip address and contact the 4500 core fine or if we still dropping the ip address with the laptop as well, it would be great to run the pcap on the client to see the DHCP communications. If i understand correctly AP`s are connected to native vlans and SSIDs VLAN are coming through trunk.
Please find attached latest release notes for IAP 18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124

I was able to pull an IP address from the laptop. I had changed this port to be a straight access port with the AP VLAN untagged. Able to pull an IP address with no problem. I have attached the packet capture showing DHCP communication as well as pinging the core EX4500.

Can we make sure uplink port of the Juniper EX3300s is not flapping (up/down).
Please try disabling STP on the specific port to see if that makes a difference.
Do we get any errors on the core switch or on Juniper EX3300s with regards to BPDU filter messages ?
IAP console doesn`t tell the root cause for why it drops the ip address.
To further isolate, we could also configure static parameters to the IAP to see if it comes up.
apboot> Setenv ipaddr 126.96.36.199
apboot> setenv netmask 255.255.255.0
apboot> setenv gatewayip 188.8.131.52
apboot> setenv domainname WLANQA.com
apboot> setenv dnsip 184.108.40.206
Thanks for captures. I could see only "discover" packets for Instant AP`s mac address
(24:de:c6:c5:8d:f4). Not sure if the DHCP discover reaches the DHCP server or not at point of time?
May I know the lease time configured on the server please?
