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.

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

We have a Netware 5 for Small Business. Our ISP provides a new DNS search

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

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...DHCP/DNS question
Is there a preferred location for DHCP/DNS in a network where there is a
Main FS, BM server, Backup server, and 3 other servers? I'm think 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?

Just realized im in...DHCP/DNS console
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?

We replaced some NW servers running DHCP with server 2003 boxes

The problem is that the workstations which get addresses from the

Is this a hopeless cause or is there some way to make this work?

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
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
