Ok, changed both network & switch to accept.
Set Vlan ID to 4095.

Now the 2003 server is getting an IP from our production dhcp server.
The Win7 client is still working fine and getting an ip from the pool....
The nested host is also getting ip from production dhcp - but not too concerned with these at present.
