Hello i am trying to setup vlans. am i am stuck will this config work. vlan1 is getting dhcp from win 2008 server and vlan 2 from trixbox dhcp. do i need the dhcp help in the vlan 2. ip helper-address XXX.XXX.XXX
ALSO WHAT EXACTLY PLUGS INTO THE ACCESS PORTS THE DHCP SERVERS ??
No, you do not need to use the ip helper-address command - in fact, it is counterproductive to use it here. This command is intended to be used on routers that connect the appropriate VLAN to the rest of network. It should not be used on switches that do not perform inter-VLAN routing.
In your case, if you want each VLAN to be served by a different DHCP server, simply make sure that the appropriate DHCP server is connected to an access port placed into the corresponding VLAN.
Be aware that a 3524xl is a layer 2 only switch . It looks like you are trying to setup routing on this switch and you cannot. You can only have 1 active SVI on this switch and that is strictly for switch management and nothing else. You are going to have to do your layer 3 routing on a different device.
Delete one of your SVI's that is not being used to manage the switch .
