I just recently set up my switches to segregate my network into vlans and I have a sonicwall router to allow for inter vlan communication. I also have a server with acronis installed on it so I can image all of my computers when I need to do so. The problem now is, is that since I've enabled my vlans, my acronis multicasting server can't seen to function with clients in other vlans. I know that I need to setup IGMP snooping on my switches and routers to take care of allowing multiple subnets to join in on a multicast session, (and if someone could provide me with instructions on how that do that please, that would be awesome) and the next thing I need to figure out is how to get my PXE servr t work across my vlans as well. For that because it relies on the dhcp server on the current subnet that it is in, I'm not sure if this would be possible (or is it?). If possible, once again it would be awesome if someone could point me in the right direction. Just do you know I have 6 vlans and my imaging server is in vlan-1.
Software/Hardware used: dell server with server 2k3 standard, acronis snap deploy, sonicwall pro 4100 router, and 2 linksys SRW248G4 48-port switches
