DNS/DHCP best practice
When we first got our servers up and running here we were Netware only.
Over the years we've added a Windows server and several Linux servers
(none SuSE unfortunatley). At this point we ocassionally get some DNS
issues (slow lookups, servers not talking to each other, etc). And now
(from a previous thread about 5 below this one) NAMED isn't working
quite right. So I'm trying to figure out if its time to scrap our
exisitng DNS and start over or if its fixiable and just needs some major
tweeking to get everyone happy. So first off:
1. Which is the easier utility to us...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 (18.104.22.168)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 not made any changes to th...What are scaling "best practices" for Novell DNS/DHCP?
Does anyone have any guidelines for "best practices" on a Novell DNS/DHCP
We are a large school district rapidly implementing DDNS, and I would like
to know if we are within recommended parameters for scalability.
We are currently using one DNS server with a passive failover DNS box to
service a projected 250 zones. What I'm most curious about is one particular
zone that looks like it might grow to around 10,000 records.
Can anyone offer any insight into an implementation of this size?

At the moment we have got the following config:
1. NetWare 6.5 DNS, DHCP, DNS Zone abc.de
2. XP PCs with Novell DNS 192.168.1.1 and member of abc.de ad domain
3. Active directory with the domain name abc.de and no DNS or DHCP
Whats the best way to use active directory and edirectory with dhcp dns?
I think we need a Windows DNS and DHCP to get the optimal windows domain
integration. Are there other ways (better)?
Let MS handle DNS. You can have NetWare act as a Secondary server for
your zones if you want.
As for DHCP, there's no real advantage to one or the...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

Hi, running NW65SP7. I see since Aug 8th (TID#5032400) the security patch
for the popular DNS issues has now been posted. What I'm wondering about is
it necessary to post this to your server if your DNS is only used for
internal queries? That is the DNS cannot be queried from outside the
If not needed when an internal DNS only, then I won't bother installing and
risking my environment, since there's no other fix mentioned in the release.

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.

I am running Novell Netware 6.5 sp7 and am having troubles when I do a

because I don't have a ptr record setup in my DNS. Any advice on how to
set this up would be greatly appreciated.
