Hi everyone,
Hope all are being safe and sound !!
Need someone experience in setting up ip helpers for pxe boot as we are trying to establish the same in our environment but having some issues.
Since we have our VLAN ranges and WDS server on different subnet and due to cost constraints we can’t set up a local WDS for this range we thought about going for up helpers for it .
It’s already configured on switched by our network team but need someone expertise with the below :
> after adding the vlan scope in our DHCP server do we still need to keep option 66 and 67 enabled or disable??
> if we implement ip helper from network side and keep the option 66 and 67 enabled at DHCP would it mess with the functionality?? Is it mandatory to get them disable??
> what are the changes we should be doing at DHCP side for this pxe boot using ip helper?

Yes, 66 and 67 must be set to see the actual situation of the device

When the number of VLANs is relatively small or when the switch setting does not support ip helper,
You can set a distribution point for each vlan to solve the OSD problem.
