L2 Broadcast spanned across VLANs

Answered Question
Dec 16th, 2008

I have an operational need to have a server listening for L2 broadcasts on each of my 40+ VLANs.

Is there anyway to do a span of all these VLANs so that I can have one server listen to all L2 broadcasts from every VLAN?

I have this problem too.

Easiest and cleanest way would be to see if your server NIC supports 802.1q and if it does create a trunk link from the server to the switch and allow all 40 vlans on that trunk link.
