Note DHCP relay does require the dhcp service to be running.

Eg below, where is the DHCP server:

service dhcp
interface Vlan10
description HQ Staff Network
ip address
ip helper-address
interface Vlan50
description Wireless Vlan
ip address
ip helper-address

Using the DEBUG IP DHCP SERVER PACKET command, we can see what happens when a client device makes a DHCP request for an IP address:

002121: *Apr 29 17:37:55.549: DHCPD: Reload workspace interface Vlan10 tableid 0.
002122: *Apr 29 17:37:55.549: DHCPD: tableid for on Vlan10 is 0
002123: *Apr 29 17:37:55.549: DHCPD: client's VPN is .
002124: *Apr 29 17:37:55.549: DHCPD: using received relay info.
