Moving Locator Objects, Setting up DNS for the First Time

We currently have a "mostly" NetWare 6.0 environment and the DNS/DHCP locator objects were installed way back in the day when we migrated to this new tree. We have never done our own DNS, only DHCP.

Each OU has it's own DHCP server holding the objects for the corresponding subnets.

I am now wanting to setup my first DNS server (yay, we're finally growing up to be an IT "big boy"!) and before I do that, I'd like to get the locator objects where I think they should be and not where they were first installed.

I've seen the TIDs (primarily 10061077) and just want to confirm that these stems can be followed to the letter and get me what I want. I want to move the objects that all servers rely on to a different OU, yet not affect any of our existing DHCP objects that are scattered all over the place.

Once I have that done, is there a TID or forum post that someone could recommend as the "newbie" checklist to follow when setting up DNS for the first time? Our DNS server will be NetWare 6.5.7 and running in VMware.

First of all, DNS on NW 6.5 doesn't use the locator object, so you don't
really need to worry about.

Second, I am in the early stages of writing a new ebook on basics of
DNS, DHCP and Web Servers in NetWare, Windows and Linux. I could use a
guinea pig to see if I am on the right track in describing DNS to a
newbie. If you are interested in having a look, and providing feedback,
email me and I'll get you a copy. The DNS section is mostly done, DHCP
not so much, and web services less than that. Craigsj@ix.netcom.com.

I'm leaving for a vacation Oct 4, so I'd need an email pretty quick if
you want to have a look at the book. I think it will explain everything
you need.

If you like another one, take me again (as for your lite version of
BM3.9)

Send me a reminder email in a couple of days. I just got back from
vacation, and I will be working on this a lot in the next week.
