Hello Everyone

I am trying to get PCs on one VLAN to get a DHCP address from a server on VLAN 1. I was successful if I have the PC and server in same switch and PC port on VLAN 2. If I move the PC down a switch it no longer receives an address. Using Wireshark to monitor DHCP requests on the server there are none making it there. I have attached the layout and basic settings for the design. I am using 2 Dell Powerconnect 6224 L3 switch connect through a 10GB Stacking Ports.

Any help would be great.
