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.

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 (188.8.131.52)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"

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?
...DHCP Questions ... Primary DNS Suffix and Bug in DHCP/DNS Utility
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.
Also, the DHCP/DNS Utility appears to have a display bug. The
Agent (Code 78) has been specified in my DHCP settings, but no value
displayed unless I click on the Modify button. We are running
...GlobalNames DNS zone and NetWare DNS servers
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...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?

Well-publicized attacks against Domain Name System (DNS) root servers and top-level domains highlight the vulnerability of the DNS
infrastructure. Many CIOs are looking for ways to ensure secure, reliable network services.
We've identified design principles and best practices for resilient, reliable Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and DNS
services. DNS is the protocol and global network of servers that translate host names into Internet Protocol addresses. Before
taking action, prioritize the risks to your network and identify the potential threats you may face.

We had a problem the other day when we lost power on our external DNS
server. Users out on the internet were not able to hit our website and
do any resolutions to our Secure VPN gateway. When we used the URL
address for the website it would not resolve. When we used the VPN
Client it would not resolve the name to an address to access the VPN. If
we used the IP address it would work.
I was under the impression if my dns server went down anyone trying to
resolve address to my domain would get the resolution from their DNS
server since this information was cached in their DNS Server....Configure PTR record for DNS using DNS /DHCP Management cons
I am running Novell Netware 6.5 sp7 and am having troubles when I do a
nslookup it displays can't find server name for address <server ip> Non
existent domain. My google searching has led me to beleive this is
because I don't have a ptr record setup in my DNS. Any advice on how to
set this up would be greatly appreciated.
Please post this in the DNS-DHCP forum, thanks.
