installing RIS server on Cisco 6513 VLAN's

we have a Cisco 6513 Vlan'd

we are installing a win3003 RIS server, how do i configure the cisco 6513 to pass this to the RIS server?

from reading Microsofts article, you need to configure the routers ip helper table to contain the Ip address of the RIS Server

On the layer 3 interfaces that will be receiving the traffic going to the RIS server, add the command:

ip helper-address x.x.x.x (ip address of RIS Server)

what if i've already got a ip helper-address x.x.x.x configured for my DHCP server can I add a second IP helper for RIS?

If the DHCP server and RIS Server are on the same network, use the outbound interface instead of the IP address as the destination for the IP helper command.

I have a DHCP  server on 10.2.8.17 /16
and the RIS is on 10.2.8.100 /16

this is the current configuration, basically i want all users from all VLAN's to access the RIS server

however we need tobe able

Sorry, I don't know what I was thinking about because you can't specify an interface as a destination for an IP helper.

What you can do is have multiple IP helpers

So just go to the VLAN interfaces and add an IP helper for the RIS server.
