It's strange. I checked the OES documentation, it it seems almost like
SLP for NetWare does not exist. The only place where it is meantioned,
it actually points to a chapter telling you how to confiure OpenSLP
with eDirectory on Windows.

My guess is that SLP for NetWare is kind of a dying component and as
such there is no new management tool for it. So NWADMN32 is probably
still the main tool.
There is actually an SLP snapin for ConsoleOne, but it is only provided
with eDirectory for Windows, and not with the NetWare version.
Teh SLP snapins for ConsoleOne are actually included in the "eDirectory
8.7 Snap-in for ConsoleOne 1.3.6" download from
http://download.novell.com

Re: SLP

Surely Novell aren't abandoning SLP are they?

I've read that eDirectory 8.7 uses DNS to try to resolve eDirectory names including tree
name - fine in a data centre only deployment, but a really bad thing in a distributed
environment.

How do Novell intend to provide the ability to locate the nearest server/service?
Please don't say something like Microsoft Active Directory's manual configuration of sites
and subnets.

Certainly not. However it seems that starting with eDirectory 8.7,
Novell is favouring OpenSLP over their own SLP implementation.
Unfortunately, OpenSLP does not exist for NetWare. So you have
completely separate SLP between NetWare and all the other platforms.

Re: SLP

I was talking with Novell and the guy there had me use NWAdmn32 to
configure the scope and DA's. Just the same as in Netware 5 and 6.
We now have SLPDA running on one of our OES servers.
