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.

That's because it's the same as long as you're moving from NW 5.0 ...DNS? What DNS?
This has never happened before and in light light of this morning's news
about the DDOS I was wondering if it is just my machine or if something
else is going on.
A firewall on one of my machines blocked IE from getting to the net. I
wanted to trace where it was planning to go to (126.96.36.199)to figure
out if this was just XP again or something else.
I tried Neo Trace and PC Helps "Net Tracer" but neither can track it.
All I get is "undetermined" or "timed out"

We are running 2 BM (3.8) Proxies and until today they have been
operating reasonably well.
Today we have started getting a lot of 504 errors on workstations using
either both servers, looking at the proxy DNS page (on both servers) the
DNS links are continually going up and down (like our internet)
We have 3 DNS servers entered 2 external and 1 internal. I have tested
from outside the BM Servers $and know the 2 external DNS servers are
working fine (also no one else who use our provider have an issue). The
internal DNS also seems fime.

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?
...Netware DNS compatibility with other secondary DNS servers
I have a problem where the primary DNS information for a domain is on
Netware 6 server. The secondary is hosted by an ISP. When I look at
SOA information on the ISP, the serial number is always 0, the refresh
always the number that the matches the serial, the retry is the
number and so forth.
Has anybody seen this? I've done this type of thing a couple times in
the past and have searched here and other places and can't seem to
that anybody else has seen this....anybody have any ideas?

We have a mix of NetWare 6.5 and Windows Server 2008 DNS servers. There
is a forwarding zone in Novell that points to the Windows DNS servers
for the DNS zone abc.xyz.local. Most workstations are configured for the
DNS zone named xyz, so when they attempt to resolve a host name, they
append xyz (i.e. webserver.xyz). Novell is primary for the xyz zone, and
the workstations point to Novell, so it resolves properly.
A few workstations are domain-joined, so they append abc.xyz.local (the
AD domain name), turning webserver into webserver.abc.xyz.local. They
also point to NetWare DNS, wh...DNS forwarding to 'unknown' DNS server/

On our firewall, i have seen that my dns servers are making request

Some address are in the rootserverinfo (m.roots-erver, ...) and other
names like blackhole-1.iana.org.
I don't understand why it looks for m.roots-server ... because my
forwardings are configured and why it looks for black....
Are you sure those requests are from your DNS server and not from
workstations on your network? You might download DBGLOG.EXE -- with it

My server is the Authoratitive DNS server for my domain.
if the NAMED service is down, no one can resolve to my web site.
It seems as if my DNS settings are not propogating to other DNS servers
on the Internet to be cached there. What settings do I have to change
to make this happen ?
Other DNS servers are not responsible for caching your DNS info. If
they have to resolve names using your server, they may cache that info
so they don't have to ask your server for it every time, but even then
the caching is probably only for a short time.
