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 ...migrate DNS from a netware 5 server to a netware 6 server
Are there any instructions for moving the dns from a netware 5 server
a netware 6 server and maintaining the databases? I don't want to
to reenter all of my special DNS info again. Also, when I change the
DNS server, I would like to maintain the same IP address for the DNS
service. I know I could do an add secondary ipaddress, but is there
anything I need to do in the DNS setup to have it respond to that
secondary ipaddress rather than the ip address that is on my netware 6
If the 2 servers are in the same NDS tree, simply create the ...How to Put new DNS in DNS/DHCP Server configure atNovell Netware 5 for Small Business
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?
...Migrating DHCP from NetWare 5.1 to Netware 6.5 OES server
Yes...we still have some legacy NetWare 5.1 servers in production. Hard
not to admire servers that haven't been rebooted in years :) That said
- we're migrating and consolidating these remaining "vintage" NetWare
boxes to virtual 6.5 OES servers.
Is there a TID or defined procedure for performing this migration?
Just one tree. The legacy 5.1 servers are on a subnet (VLAN) that
we're abandoning - with the virtual servers being on a new VLAN. With
multiple VLANs - we're using a dhcp helper in our core switch
configuration - so we'll have to update ...Netware 6.5 Server with a Netware 5.0 Server?
We want to install a new Netware 6.5 server in an environment that has two
6.0 servers and 2 Netware 5.0 servers on the same tree. We are running
8.6.2 e directory on the 6.0 boxes and 8.0.6 NDS on the 5.0 boxes. Are
there any problems with this setup,or should we be installing 6.0 instead?
Thanks in advance.

http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/...W2K3 server DNS/Netware 5.1 DHCP
Can anyone tell me if (and how to configure) Novell DHCP (5.1) can
dynamically update a Windows 2003 Server DNS?
I can get the WinXPpro clients to update to the W2K3 server, but I will have
to go to each machine and type in the domain suffix (since they are not
member of the ms domain) as well as configuring them to register that
connection in DNS.
As a sidenote...I think my answer lays in DHCP option 15...but it is not
listed under the other options tab in DNSDHCP managment .

news:206Tc.2...Moving DHCP Subnets from NetWare 5.1 to NetWare 6.x Server
I have a customer that is wishing to move their subnets from a NetWare
5.1 to NetWare 6.x server but want to be able to rollback to the
NetWare 5.1 server if things go horrible.
My feeling is that this will be fine as the DHCP objects are stored in
DS and are not altered by the server loading them.
Am I correct or do I start to look for another rollback solution?

Yes, that is correct. Just t...Migrate DNS/DHCP from a linux bind8/dhcpd3 machine to a netware 6 server
The documentation at the Novell site wasn't overly helpful
in this quest. What I want to know is whether there's an easy
way of migrating my zone-files and dhcpd.conf from existing
debian boxes to a novell server, like in just copying the
files over ... I'd like to preserve both since they're quite
big, the dhcp-server only handing out leases to know MACs.
I'd hate to have to re-enter them all.
If debian writes your DHCP info to DHCPTAB3 formatted files, then you
should have no problem there. DNS files can also be imported. Yo...Netware 6.5 server abends when trying to backup Netware 5.1 GW Server

the certificates need to be changed?
Thanks for your help!
You'll probably do better to ask this in the 5.x and/or 6.x forums.
This forum supports Novell's DNS server on NetWare, which doesn't seem
to be part of your question.
To get started, there are TIDs on changing server IP addresses, which
may have info pertaining to zone name changes. Best of luck...

It makes sense that the BM server is also the DNS server - does it
matter which server is the DHCP server, perhaps in terms of speed of
logging in, etc.? Is it possible to have the DNS server be other than
the BM server?
Just want to know if this matters from a system design point of view.
Network in question has 4 Netware servers and 1 Windows server.

We are currently running NW 5.1 SP7 on all servers. Planning to install
new NetWare 6.5 servers into the tree and I am wondering if I can have 2
DNS servers (one NW 5.1 & the other NW 6.5) hosting the same domain name.
If NW 6.5 SP5 DNS works well, I will make the NW 6.5 named server as the
primary name server for everyone and use the NW 5.1 DNS server as the
secondary DNS server.
With DHCP, I am running DHCPSRVR on a Netware 5.1 server and planning to
move the DHCPSRVR server to the NW6.5 server that runs named as well. Any

When making DNS changes (like changing an IP address), I have unloaded and
loaded named on our DNS servers. I can perform an nslookup and successful
ping of that object with the new desired IP address using a command prompt.
However, our Netware 6.5 server does not see the new IP address, and I
don't know how to perform a DNS cache on Netware servers.
Does anyone know how or what command should be used to perform that
action? It would be greatly helpful and would save me a ton of time.
