setup dhcp forwarding on each vlan back to the dhcp server and the pxe server. setup the dhcp server w/ scopes for each vlan. open firewall ports so each vlan can get back to the tftp server, the datastore and the appserver (port 9831).
Let me confirm about pxe.conf.
Usually, I configure it like below,
1. which interface to use
But I want to configure like the follows:
if the request coming from eth0, then tftp use eth0.
if the request coming from eth1, then tftp use eth1.
Is that possible?
It is good if I can configure pxe.conf like pxe0.conf and pxe1.conf.

Ah – this is harder. What I did in this case was to setup multiple instances of pxe and tftp on the same box and have each bind to a different nic/ip. On a unix appserver you can use the –local flag w/ the installer to create a self-contained install, and then you can do multiple of those. the startup scripts will be in installdir/conf and not /etc/init.d, but you could move them in. you would use the pxe.conf for each instance so you can bind it to the right nic, same for tftp.
