DNS/DHCP Management Console empty

Installed new OES2-Linux in existing tree. Selected OES2 DNS and DHCP.
Further no config done on the new server at this time.
DNS/DHCP is still working on the NetWare servers.

When starting DNS/DHCP Managemt the wrong info is displayed.
Only the RootSeverInfo in the new ou of the new Linux-server is displayed. There an RootServerInfo-object was automatically created during the install of OES DNS/DHCP.

How to switch to the right RootServerInfo (just 1 ou higher in the tree)?

That's a mistake. That's not "no" config, but results in "default"
config, which will add a second locator obejct into the OES server
context. You need to delete that, and reconfigure DNS and point it at
the already existing locator object.

Thanks Massimo, so what exactly to delete? The dhcpLocator, the DHCPGroup, DNSDHCP-Group, DNS-DHCP (questionmarked).
All of them?

The DNS-DHCP. That's the locator object for DNS in OES2. The DHCP in the
name only applies for Netware DHCP (which there uses the same locator
object as DNS).

I deleted all 4. Then Yast , OES etc. configured DNS (option to sync the settings from another DNS-server). Now it works fine.
