DHCPSRVR nad Netware 6.5

When we upgrade a server to Netware 6.5 (from Netware 6.0 sp4)
workstations no longer get a an ip address via dhcp.

Here is the environment
NW6.5 sp2
Applied tcp657ha as well for tcp stack.
DHCPSRVR.NLM Version 3.13.04 April 30, 2004

IPaddesses are defined as manual and SLP, DNS and ip addess info (ie.
gateway) are defined globally from DHCP. Clients appear to not get the
default gateway

We have seen this with Netware 6.0 (sp3 and 4) and had to back rev the
dhcpsrvr.nlm to Version 3.11.01 February 12, 2002.
Any ideas
Thanks;

Every time I've seen this, it was due to broken broadcom (b57/q57.lan)
drivers. However, with NW6.5, working drivers should be included, unless
you manually installed older ones. They need to be V7.XX, any older will
break.

Which of those is the actual problem -- no ip address, or not gateway?
Does the log from DHCPSRVR -D3 offer any clues?

Workstation doesn't get the default gateway.
We have some servers running zfd4 (ir4) where I saw this behavior But I'm
concentrating on a server that isn't running zen first. I did see
something in the news groups where deleting T1 and T2 helped if "static
dhcp with permanent lease". This is the case with me. All entries are
manual and the lease time for the whole subnet is permanent. I'm trying on
a remote PC right now

IT WORKED !!
Not sure why this didn't effect us under NW6.0
Is there anything I keep in mind on the ZFD side ?

Thanks;

Yeah! 🙂

I suspect Tommy was thinking of ZFD imaging, which listens on port 67
for BootP requests. This conflicts with DHCP server which also listens
on port 67 -- this would prevent DHCP Server from loading, which of
course would prevent clients from getting an address.

Shhhhhhhhh... if we let on that we can read minds, the natives start
expecting it. Then we get messages like "harumph!" with subject "I
have no hair left!" and are expected to deduce from that.... 1) the
version of NW they're running, 2) the service pack that's installed, 3)
which particular NLMs are involved with the problem, 4) the versions of
those NLMs, and 5) all of the details of what the problem is, including
the precise symptoms that led the user to post here in the first place.

Now, all that isn't so hard, but you *know you're good* when you get a
message like that and you can say with absolute accuracy that the
message actually belongs in forum "xyz" instead of this one, and "xyz"
is NOT the Community Chit-Chat forum. 🙂

All in all this mind reading stuff is a lot of work, to which I have a
simple response: hpmurah!! Somehow that gets them to make a more
concentrated effort at explaining themselves...
