ip forwarding/NAT?

I'm running a DRBL server on RHEL 6 using it for DHCP and internet connectivity. I want to add another subnet in a different VLAN. I can add the pool to the dhcp server, and on my layer 3 switch set a static route that points to the DRBL inside lan interface: ip route The problem is, I think that the 254 doesn't know how to pass traffic back to the 103 network??? Is there something on the DRBL server I can configure to allow the clients on the 103 network to get to the internet?

I'm not familiar with the DRBL server.

Your VLAN is controlled by a hardware device?

If it is controlled by a hardware let's say by Cisco, then you should be able to configure the VLAN from there on how it would work.

Good luck.. just an idea..

Rep: Reputation: Disabled DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux) is free software, open source solution to managing the deployment of the GNU/Linux operating system across many clients. Imagine the time required to install GNU/Linux on 40, 30, or even 10 client machines individually! DRBL allows for the configuration all of your client computers by installing just one server (remember, not just any virtual private server) machine.

Basically, DRBL is providing NAT. I'm trying to expand from the network and VLAN that it is running on to another network/VLAN.

Have you configured routing on your layer3 switch? In order to cross vlan/networks you need a route setup.
