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.

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

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 .

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

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 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?

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...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?

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'll need a couple of days to complete the above...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
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?
