1.0 Understanding DNS and DHCP Services

DNS/DHCP Services in Open Enterprise Server (OES) integrates the Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services into NetIQ eDirectory. Integrating these services into eDirectory provides centralized administration and enterprise-wide management of DNS and DHCP services.

DNS and DHCP services can be managed by using the Java Management Console.

NOTE:A Novell DNS server can only be managed by using the Java management Console utility. The DNS YaST plug-in does not support managing a Novell DNS server.
