I'm doing it with OSX, however i have IP Vlans which at the layer 3
level I just use a helper address for lost UDP requests and point
them to my DHCP server.
It is a bit quicker when the clients can access on their local
subnet. I am actually going to spread out the services because a
central server is a central point of failure.
It has a tendency to effect everyone at the same time.
what kind of switches are you using?
