I have a problem with my netware client 4.91 sp2 on xp sp2 after migrating
from netware oes to linux oes sp2. I cannot find a way to configure the dhcp
service running on linux oes to hand out the option 78 (Directory Agent
List), 79 (SLP Scope) and 85 (Preferred Server) to the client on XP as it
was before migrating to Linux.

/etc/dhcpd.conf :

option domain-name "netcomp.at";
option domain-name-servers;
option routers;
option ntp-servers;
option lpr-servers;
option netbios-name-servers;
option slp-directory-agent true;
option slp-service-scope true "SCOPE-WALLERN";
option nds-servers;
option nds-context "office.ncp";
option nds-tree-name "NETCOMP-TREE";
option vendor-class-identifier "PXEClient";
default-lease-time 1209600;
ddns-update-style none;
subnet netmask {

/etc/slp.conf :

net.slp.DAAddresses =
net.slp.useScopes = SCOPE-WALLERN
net.slp.isBroadcastOnly = false
net.slp.isDA = true
net.slp.interfaces =

slpd and dhcpd are running,

slptools findscopes finds SCOPE-WALLERN

How to make openslp and dhcp work to hand out the needed options to the
client(s)? We have about 600 clients spread over 3 countries and 9 locations
in Europe and dont want to set the options in the client manually. This is
a ko criteria for us deciding a migration to linux oes or to other systems.

Any help is welcome!
