[Samba] VLAN issue

Hi --
The environment we have is as follows,
  Domain controller:  samba 3.0.14a running Solaris 9/X86
  Authentication: openldap 2.2.14
  Clients: Windows XP with SP2
The issue I met:
  If both clients and Samba server are on the same physical switch (also same subnet), the clients can join the domain and users can log into their domain accounts without any problem. However, if the clients and the Samba server are networked via VLAN (not on the same switch but still virtually on the same subnet),  the clients still can join the domain, but, after  the clients are rebooted, users are greeted with message: "Please wait while the domain list is created" for about 5 minutes and then generate the following message:
"The remote procedure call failed and did not execute"
when the users try to login to their domain account.
It seems to me the issue came from the VLAN. I am wondering what configuration change I should request the person who is in charge of VLAN make to fix the problem. Or, any other ways I can do on the samba server side to walk around this issue?
