DHCP/DNS questions

I am by no means a Netware "expert" but I have found some great help on
this forum and hope someone can help me with a couple of questions.
We are a small company with all resources under on roof. We are running
Netware 6.5 on a Dell 700 server. For our DNS server, we have a Unix system
(which I don't administer). When I set up the Netware 6.5 server I entered
the DNS server's IP address and Domain Name at an early point in the
installation. No problem there. We recently set up a new Unix DNS server
and the IP address (of the DNS server) and Domain Name was changed. My
first question is how do I change the DNS server's IP address and Domain
Name on the Netware 6.5 server?
My second question is this: With our Unix system taking care of DNS duties,
do we still have to set up DHCP on the Netware server? (You may guess that
I am not too clear about DHCP). Thanks for any help.

Hi Bruce,

To change the DNS server address in Netware, type INETCFG at the
command prompt and goto the Protocols -> TCPIP menu. There should be
an entry there for DNS resolvers where you can change your domain name
and dns server address.

Be warned that if you change the servers domain name, it will
invalidate the SSL certificates that are used for SSL connections.
Search for PKIDIAG at support.novell.com and that will re-create the
certifiate for you.

DHCP is used to assign IP addresses to workstations automatically. If
you're a small organisation, you've probably got each workstations
address assigned manually so you wont need this service.

Cheers,

Steve

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 NDS 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 the 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 Directory Agent (Code 78) has been specified in my DHCP settings, but no value is displayed unless I click on the Modify button.

DNS/DHCP question
I've got a mixed bag here with Windows AD and NDS. the Windows group insists that AD functions best with a Windows DNS, so we set up our network accordingly. my question is this. I still want to run DHCP from the NDS side. if I do that, is it necessary to also have a DNS service in the tree? I tried removing it and got messages on my DHCP console about trying to connect to the IP of the NW server that last ran DNS followed by RoconstructConnection failed, etc. and DHCP wouldn't work. I re-added the service to the DHCP server and everything seems OK. Mike O'Shea ElectriCities...

SLES DNS and NetWare DHCP
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 correctly. ...

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 need a tool for DNS/DHCP
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.

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?

DHCP/DNS placement question
Is there a preferred location for DHCP/DNS in a network? e.g should it be placed on the Main FS or BM server? I'm thinking place it on the server where the logins take place. Or should I split it where DHCP is on the MainFS and DNS could reside on the BM server? Thanks Mostly you want them close to the client machines. Beyond that it just depends on how busy your servers are and the anticipated load on the DHCP/DNS servers. DHCP assignments happen long before logins, so putting it on the login server has no bearing either way. bd NSC Volunteer SysOp ...
