couldn't find it for sure although this article* seems to indicate it should, so should a subscriber also pickup DHCP requests send to it and add them to the end point repository?

ok, so DHCP requests which via a DHCP relay are send to a subscriber will end up in the endpoint repository (picked up by subscriber then forwarded to publisher which adds it)?

As Tim eluded to in an earlier post on this thread..... SUBs can receive DHCP forwarded messages, it will however just forward them to the PUB and then the PUB consolidates all this info, which can come from different profiling sources... DHCP, OUI, HTTP-Agent, TCP Fingerprinting, Cisco sensor etc. and then processes this data and uses as discussed in my below technote to come up with a fingerprint that is the most specific and the most 'trust-worthy' and then syn'c this back to the cluster.

thanks you both, was confused as it seemed the subscriber wasn't picking up DHCP requests, well nothing got added to the endpoint database. but perhaps i was just a little impatient.
will test some more.
