OES dhcp (part 3)

Ok, trying to get dhcp set up @ remote sites.

I have the oes server built, launch miggui & migrate the dhcp data from
the existing server to the oes one.

Data migrates fine, I get everything setup in the dhcp console the way
I want it & the service will start & stop fine via rcnovell-dhcpd

Go to check & make sure dhcp will launch on server bootup, I do NOT see
an entry for rcnovell-dhcp anywhere.

After looking around in YaST, now I cannot get the service to start, I
get an error:

Error: Cannot login to ldap server <server_ip>:636: Invalid credentials.

What am I doing wrong? I've already completely killed one server
trying to reconfigure dhcp via the OES config & ended up destroying
edir on it & I'm rebuilding it now.

You may have corrupt credentials in CASA for dhcp. Try running the following to reset:

KEYVALUE=cn=admin,o=yourOrg CASAcli -s -n dhcp-ldap -k CN
KEYVALUE=passwordValue CASAcli -s -n dhcp-ldap -k Password

cn=admin,o=yourOrg should be replaced with a valid tree super user
passwordValue should be replaced with the super user's password
the rest of the information is listeral (esp. -k Password)

hope this helps....

To answer your other question, there is not a novell-dhcpd service under chkconfig. novell-dhcpd is just a shortcut to dhcpd service. If you have it enabled, then the novell-dhcpd should startup fine.

/usr/sbin # ll | grep dhcp
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Feb 14 16:17 rcnovell-dhcpd -> rcdhcpd
