WGM, NetInstall, Binding Over VLANS
Our XServe is in the same physical location as our 50 mac clients, and also on the same VLAN as them.
Was told that was the only way to apply preferences via WGM and to NetInstall.
Howevere, we are now starting to get a few macs dotted about campus and not on the same VLAN, ideally I would like to be able to use WGM to apply preferences to these macs and to netinstall them when needed. When you bind these macs to open directory using directory utility it will bind, but you have to physically type in the server name, rather than it auto appearing in the drop down if the client was on the same vlan as the server. Even when it binds to the server no preferences will apply to it, and WGM cannot see the client.
I've managed to get netinstall to work over vlans so im happy about this, but the wgm and the binding issue remains.
I could create a mac vlan and put all macs onto this, but i really see that as being defeated and a last option. I would love to be able to move the xserve into our server room, rather than being housed locally in the mac suite.
Any ideas welcome!
