Recreate DNS/DHCP in Suse10sp3+OES2sp3

Hi,

I am currently running DNS/DHCP on an old Netware 6.5sp8 server. I want to
recreate a new Suse10 Oes2 DNS and DHCPC objects and start everything fresh.
(not too many subnets etc to create)

So my question is, can I just delete all the old subnets, DNS/DHCP objects
and server etc. Remove eDir off the Netware box and then shut it down.
Install DNS/DHCP in Yast on the new server and create new subnets, recreate
server etc.

Have I left out anything ....

Regards
John

Technically yes you can do the above but actually for DHCP on OES2
you're going to have to (re)create objects anyway since DHCP on OES2
uses a different format than DHCP on NetWare.

Please also note the miggui migration tool can handle migration of DHCP
from NetWare to OES2 (it's improved since I last tried it and had to
write my own Perl script).

HTH.
