I'm trying to use Novell ZENworks Configuration Management to image machines I have on my campus. The optimum setup for this is to have the clients PXE boot to check the server for work that needs to be done. When I try to set this up I can only get it to work on the same VLAN.
Here is my setup:
We have a Cisco Cat. 6509 that does all our VLAN routing and our DHCP. The PXE server is on VLAN 18 with an IP of 10.1.18.6 it is running on a VMware host. The VMware host is on VLAN 10 with a management IP of 10.1.10.20. The port this is plugged into is configured as follows:
description VM Netowrk switchport switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q switchport trunk native vlan 10 switchport mode trunk no ip address
The VMware host is configured to put the VMs on VLAN 18. I'm not positive that this is the best method or configuration, but I have multiple servers setup up this way and connectivity is working fine. Please let me know if there is a better way, I do not claim to be an expert in VLANs or VMware in any way. I have the helper-address set on the VLAN I'm trying to PXE (VLAN 12), it is configured with 10.1.18.6 (PXE server). Here is the DHCP pool and VLAN interface configs.
ip dhcp pool VLAN12.IT.DATA network 10.1.12.0 255.255.255.192 default-router 10.1.12.1 dns-server 10.1.18.10 domain-name cucps.k12.va.us netbios-name-server 10.1.18.10 netbios-node-type h-node lease 3
description IT DATA ip address 10.1.12.1 255.255.255.192 ip helper-address 10.1.18.6 ip dhcp relay information trusted ip pim sparse-dense-mode
If I put in option 66 and 67 on the dhcp pool on the Cisco, I can PXE my machine, but I get a problem with the imaging server address coming up as 0.0.0.0. I found Novell documentation which tells me option 66/67 are not supported with the version of ZENworks I'm using. If I remove these options, PXE tells me no boot file specified. I have set ip forward-protocol udp 67/68, per Novell instructions, on the 6509. If I move the same machine to VLAN 18, everything works fine.
