Sorry I should have added, we are running LANDesk 9.0 on Server 2008 R2.
We have a single PXE server (landesk 8.8 on Windows 2003) which is accesible through multiple vlans.
The DHCP option we use is 66 set to the landesk server name.
In the data vlan lans on the cisco switches we have:
ip helper-address ip_of_the_landesk_server
ip directed-broadcast (this is for WOL)
Thanks for your response Leighton, just to clarify are you running pxe on your core server? and is the full f8 menu being presented on clients outside of the servers vlan

We are running PXE on the core server.
The full F8 menu is avaliable to clients outside the server vlan.
We are trialing 802.1X on the edge switches, but this breaks PXE and havenit found an easy solution yet.
Hi there, thanks for your help we have tried option 66 without success we just get bootfile name not received, are you running DHCP on your routers or on a windows box (pxe server)
DHCP is run from Windows servers. Which is in the same server vlan as the landesk core.
options we use are:
006 DNS Servers
015 DNS Domain Name
066 Boot Server Host Name
on the cisco switches we have
ip helper-address ip_of_dhcp_server
ip helper-address ip_of_landesk_core
toHey mate, thanks for your continued help on this one. We are getting somewhere in that we can now get the f8 menu presenting however we can now not get the tftp to send, do you know if multicasting is enabled across your vlans?
the core switches (where all the data vlans are defined) have: ip multicast-routing
the edge switches do not.
Thanks for all your help with this, we have half a solution up and running but had to turn off multicast on our pxe representatives.
