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.

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 (22.214.171.124)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"

Today we have started getting a lot of 504 errors on workstations using

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

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?
...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

displayed unless I click on the Modify button. We are running

Yes, you can create a resource with multiple RR entries.

We have a mix of NetWare 6.5 and Windows Server 2008 DNS servers. There
is a forwarding zone in Novell that points to the Windows DNS servers
for the DNS zone abc.xyz.local. Most workstations are configured for the
DNS zone named xyz, so when they attempt to resolve a host name, they
append xyz (i.e. webserver.xyz). Novell is primary for the xyz zone, and
the workstations point to Novell, so it resolves properly.
A few workstations are domain-joined, so they append abc.xyz.local (the
AD domain name), turning webserver into webserver.abc.xyz.local. They
also point to NetWare DNS, wh...Netware DNS compatibility with other secondary DNS servers
I have a problem where the primary DNS information for a domain is on
Netware 6 server. The secondary is hosted by an ISP. When I look at
SOA information on the ISP, the serial number is always 0, the refresh
always the number that the matches the serial, the retry is the
number and so forth.
Has anybody seen this? I've done this type of thing a couple times in
the past and have searched here and other places and can't seem to
that anybody else has seen this....anybody have any ideas?

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...DNS Round Robin Configuration
When configuring a custom Adaptive Agent have people configured the
agent to point to a round robin address that services all primary
servers or have they added each server name in turn into the custom
agent? I have found that regardless of the Closest Server Default Rule
all servers are not accessed equally unless a round robin address is
used by the adaptive agent. Does anyone have any best practice
information regarding this?

I want to setup round robin DNS on Netware 6 and not quite sure how to
do it. Do I create the resource record and then add multiple

For example, if I create a resource record for the host name "foobar"
and then add ip addresses to it, is that the right way to do it?

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
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?
