ShoreTel, option 156 and Forigate 100D

I'm trying to get our VoIP phones to get the final configuration info from the the Shoretel server.
We have our data LAN(VLAN 1), pulling IPs from DHCP, 2003 Server, where I also configured the 156 option(attached).
VoIP phones(VLAN 8) are getting IPs from out FG100D.
VLANS 1 and 8 are allowed across trunks, except for vswitch that Shoretel is on. It is configured for VLAN 8.
The phones are getting IPs, DNS, SNTP settings, but just not connecting to Shoretel server, to config file.
I also tried applying the option 156 in the FG100D, but still no luck.

Also, I'm going to have to pass this config across VPNs too, if anyone has any input on this.

Anyone ever worked with this?

Ensure your option 156 is correctly formatted

  option 156 ascii "ftpservers=<IPOFSHORETELSERVER>, country=1, language=1, layer2tagging=1, vlanid=xx"

Why are you using 2 separate DHCP servers?  Do you have phones and computers plugged into the same switches and computers then plugged into phones?   If so, eliminate the 2nd DHCP server and put option 156 on the windows box.

Our voice and data are physically segmented. I've used the exact syntax for the 156 option and also modifed with no spacing per a suggestion. It is added to the 2003 Server DHCP and on the FG100D. I've also added the statement to each single DHCP server to see if that worked, but not.

The option is currently just on the 2003 server pointing to the Shoretel server.

Can you statically assign an IP and the FTP server to the phone and have it come up?

On your voice vlan, are your phone switch ports set to native vlan 8?    If so, then you do not need VLAN tagging in the DHCP scope.

Yes, I let it get an IP from DHCP and put a static server IP in and it works fine. All IP assignment is correct, SNTP, just a static server IP.
When you set the static server IP and DHCP address , are you also specifying VLAN tagging is enabled during the manual setup?  If not, then you are defaulting to VLAN 1
HaroldNetwork EngineerAuthor Commented:
There's 802.1q under Network Policy and another under Ethernet. I enabled 802.1q under Network Policy, on the phone and added VLAN 8. It restarted, changes were applied and I had dial tone still.

Doesn't that last value specify the VLAN?

I ended up moving the DHCP pool to the servers DHCP and only used the ftpserver value.
