DHCP Console will not show IP addresses

I am running my DHCP from my Linux OES2 SP2 server. I can login to the DHCP console and create and manage my DHCP no problem. The issue is, I want to make an ip address exclusion, but there is no option for doing that. If I click on one of my subnets and click the create button I only see Service and DHCP server. All documentation says I should see IP Address. It worked fine on my Novell server but now that it is on my OES server I have no option to see or add an IP address. Like I said I also cannot see any ip address under my ip pools. On my Novell server I was able to see all the ip addresses in use. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: DHCP Console will not show IP addresses

This is a known issue. Starting with OES 2 SP 3 this option will be available on a read only basis. Please follow TID: 7006450 after SP 3 is applied.
Novell Support has a way to do this on OES 2 SP 2 (have to extend the schema on the server and use the OES 2 SP 3 version of the DNS/DHCP management console), but it isn't officially supported until SP 3. The option for OES 2 SP 2 isn't public.

In the mean time, you have to monitor your /var/lib/dhcp/db/dhcpd.leases file if you wish to view current leases.
