Problem:

SLP DA + DHCP OPTION 78, 79 FOR OES LINUX

This tip will help you to configure SLP DA and DHCP to send to option 78 and 79 on OES Linux.

Solution:

  1. Configure SLP DA on your OES Linux.

    Edit: /etc/slp.conf

    Add this to slp.conf ( This is an example )

    net.slp.useScopes = DEFAULT
    net.slp.DAAddresses = 192.168.1.1 
    net.slp.isDA = true
    net.slp.isBroadcastOnly = false
  2. Configure DHCP with SLP OPTIONS

    Edit: /etc/dhcpd.conf

    Add this to dhcpd.conf ( This is an example )

    option nds-servers 192.168.1.1;
    option slp-directory-agent true 192.168.1.1;
    option slp-service-scope true "DEFAULT";
    option netbios-node-type 8;
    option domain-name "adaris.ca";
    option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.1;
    option routers 192.168.1.254;
    authoritative;
    ddns-update-style none;
    default-lease-time 604800;
    subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask {
      range 192.168.1.50 192.168.1.100;
      default-lease-time 6040800;
    }

    Restart both services

    /etc/init.d/slpd restart
    /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart

Testing:

Reboot your Windows machine, open a DOS Windows ( CMD ) and then type SLPINFO /D to verify if your workstation get to good information regarding the DA by DHCP.

You should see something like:

192.168.1.1   DHCP   UP   SLPV1  DEFAULT
