I am rebuilding a 2008 server with sql 2008 and altiris Deployment console 6.9 sp2. It is working now however I am trying to get the clients to be able to pxe boot and load an image from altiris no matter which vlan they are on. We have about 8 vlans each with its own DHCP scope and using hp procurve switches for the acls and the core switch does all the layer 3 work. Has anybody acheived this?
I don't have any experience with Altiris, but normally you would configure the Layer 3 device to forward BOOTP/DHCP/PXE requests to an IP address (in this case you DHCP server and deployment server).
On a Cisco switch this is configured using IP HELPER ADDRESS.
I've not done this, so this is just my musings.
Give the 2008 server multiple static ip addresses and assign mutiple VLANS to the port that it plugs into.
Make sure the 2008 server doesn't try to bridge any traffic.
