We have gone from a very flat network (single vlan, single subnet) to multiple subnets/vlans.
We have a DHCP server sitting on 192.168.2.x (servers) and workstations on a new subnet 192.168.8.x
I have configured the VLAN with an ip helpder address for the two DHCP servers but the DHCP requests go nowhere beyond the subnet/vlan (192.168.8.x).
I was looking further into this and read about the ip directed broadcast command. There seem to be mixed feelings about this command/config.
Reading into the command it would seem to suggest that this could be causing the issue for this VLAN as the broadcast is not going to the other subnet.
Do you think this is causing the problem? I dont want to be adding congestion to the network in doing this if this is not necessary?
I should also mention that I am using two 3560E's for routing and Windows 2003 servers as DHCP servers.
