Description (partial)

DHCP discover packets not being forwarded upstream in a Guest Foreign/Anchor setup with a 4500 as MA with interim 5760 MC to a 5508 Anchor controller when 4500 switch and uplink is on L3 routed port

[AP]--[4500 MA(Foreign)]--[5760 MC]--[5508 MC(Anchor)]

4500: 3.7.0
5760: 3.6.2

We see the 4500 is not forwarding the client DHCP discover on the mobility tunnel. We have identified the trigger to be the 4500 uplink port to be layer 3 routed. When the uplink port is made l2 switchport, all works fine.
