On which VLAN do Smart Plus series switches send DHCP requests?

I've come to suspect that the Smart Managed Plus switches will send DHCP requests untagged on all their ports. Is this true?

The documentation doesn't seem to help here.

 

If I cannot configure the switches to send DHCP requests on a specific VLAN ID, this would mean I have to give them all static IP addresses, as some switches are connected to several VLANs with DHCP servers - so I wouldn't know what subnet they are on.

 

Thanks,

No other way than using a static IP address in this use case.

The limitation is that the microcontroller on the Smart Managed Plus system does sit on all VLANs untagged, a management VLAN can't be configured. Please be aware that the static IP is reachable on all VLANs therefore, too.
