FortiNAC DHCP Profile

Hi All,

As my understanding, we support DHCP profiling for any device. 
I have followed the user guide to deploy a registration VLAN and configured the DHCP relay and point to FortiNAC.
I am able to discover the devices now, but the FortiNAC does not enable the DHCP server services, so the devices cannot get the IP address. 

May I know can we enable the DHCP service to allow the devices to get the network connectivity in the isolation/registration netowrk?

Thanks for your help.

I believe profiling and dhcp server will be 2 different things.  You have to enable the dhcp server in the FortiNAC if supported because the DHCP Server normally it'd be a Windows/linux DHCP Server, a router or a Fortigate par example.
