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.

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.
[ Rea...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

...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?
It is an oddity.
In one of my subnets at another building, if I run DNS/DHCP Console, I can
see both DHCP servers in the one tree. I can also manage and edit them.
If I am in the other building (separate subnet), if I run DNS/DHCP
Console, it does not recognize any DHCP servers.
DHCP is working in both buildings but I currently need to be in the other
subnet to manage them. These trees were merged and the second DHCP server
Servers are running NW6 SP5 patched up to current levels.
Any ideas on how I can fix this?

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?

We have had DHCP running on NetWare for some time, with no local DNS

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

We replaced some NW servers running DHCP with server 2003 boxes
runnning DHCP. We configured them the same as far as address ranges,
dns server addresses, etc.
The problem is that the workstations which get addresses from the
Server 2003 boxes will NOT register their PTR or A records on our
Netware 6.5 SP5 DNS box.
Is this a hopeless cause or is there some way to make this work?

When I first installed NW5.0 the DNS-DHCP locator object was placed in
Root Container. After reading the Novell DNS/DHCP Services Admin
for NDS7 it wrote that I should create a new container under root for

everthing in this TID except step (2) it says to type DNIPINST -f at
