The places that come to mind off hand are sys:etc\hosts , 
sys:etc\hostname , sys:etc\resolv.cfg , and in the DNS certificate. Of 
course, depending on the other applications installed there will be 
other locations - eg for Apache, Tomcat etc.

Netware 6.5 Installation
Hello, I am test driving Netware 6.5 and am in the middle of installation. I am at the screen where it asks what my Host Name and Domain name is. I don't have a DNS server and my name isn't registered so what should I put in those boxes? My servername is NW1 so I could put that in the Host Name. But, what about the Domain Name? Should I just enter Local? I am using a router which assigns IP addresses. Since I am still testing Netware, and don't have a DNS server, I could just use the HOSTS file on the workstation, correct?
