move a netware 6.0 dns and dhcp server to a netware 6.5 dns and dhcp server
would appreciate if someone can step me through how to achieve above. I
have checked all Novell tid and discussion forum and could not find steps
referring to moving both dns and dhcp servers from a netware 6.0 sp4 server
and to netware 6.5 sp4 server.

We have a Netware 5 for Small Business. Our ISP provides a new DNS search
order. I made this change in sys:\etc\resolv.cfg file. Do I also need to
make the change to DNS/DHCP Server at the Novell Server? If I do, what is
the procedure to make this change? Are there other place I need to change
You're best ask in the DNS newsgroup -- but why does your ISP provides
a search order if you have your own DNS?
We replaced some NW servers running DHCP with server 2003 boxes
runnning DHCP. We configured them the same as far as address ranges,
dns server addresses, etc.
The problem is that the workstations which get addresses from the
Server 2003 boxes will NOT register their PTR or A records on our
Netware 6.5 SP5 DNS box.
Is this a hopeless cause or is there some way to make this work?

Hello! I really love having my eDirectory servers being able to use the
Novell DNS/DHCP tool. But I've found that this doesn't work with Linux SLES
9 / OES. I spoke with a person about an open source tool that used a web
front end for editing DNS/DHCP. What I really need it for is to set some
printers to a manually assigned IP Address based on MAC address. Can someone
be kind enough to point a newbie in the right direction?

We have had DHCP running on NetWare for some time, with no local DNS
service. The DHCP option 6 is set to a BorderManager DNS proxy.
I just set up a SLES 11 server with named, and it will resolve our local
static IP addresses and forward to OpenDNS. I am using it now, and it
seems to be working correctly. Next step, can I set the NetWare DHCP
server to update the SLES DNS server, or would I be better off setting up
DHCP on the SLES server? My main concerns are transitioning to the SLES
server without disruption, and getting Option 60 for ZFD PXE boot set up
...Netware to OES2 DNS/DHCP
I'm about to migrate my two dns/dhcp servers from Netware 6.5.8 to OES2
Linux 64bit machines.
I have two questions about the process.
1. I've not migrated a Netware host to a OES2 host yet. I understand
it's possible to do an ID tranfser to the OES2 box to keep the
servername, ID etc Is this correct?
2. and more appropriate for this forum, DNS/DHCP. Can I run DNS/DHCP
on both Netware and OES2 while I upgrade both machines, I will I need to
have only one server running these services during the upgrade process?

I have been reconfiguring our Novell 5.1 SP4 DHCP/DNS server to pass
Server, Tree, and Context information through DHCP.
I would like to specify the Primary Domain suffix for Windows 2000
workstations. Currently, we manually enter a suffix domain name under
TCP/IP properties, but IT staff sometime forget to perform this step.
Any help would be appreciated.

think 1) the container where the DNSDHCP locator, group and
RootServerInfo live, and 2) the container(s) where the DNS and DCHP
objects reside that he needs to manage. And I don't think a user would
need this as the NLMs manage the files here, but it's possible that

We have always used static IPs. We have about 300 users. Let's say they
are spread equally inside of 192.168.a.b where a is 1, 2 or 3 depending on
the floor or location you are in. We have always just pointed people to
our ISP for DNS. Lately we have been considering going to DHCP and
bringing the DNS in-house so we have a little more flexibility. The thing
is, everyone on my staff including myself has used these service on Win2k
or 2003 server and are familiar with them. We are debating whther to just
throw one of these out there to do it or learn the Netware way. Mos...Converting DHCP/DNS from Netware to OES2
What is the process for converting a DHCP/DNS cluster resource running
on Netware to OES2? We have a Netware two node cluster. I will remove
node1 and insert a new OES2 node1 into the cluster. Install DHCP/DNS on
it. Then do I run the migration tool and migrate the DHCP/DNS services
that are running the Netware/node2 server to the OES2/node1 server?
I have done the process on a stand alone server using the migration
tool and it was pretty easy and went smoothly but have never done this
on a cluster/cluster resource.
