I have configured SLP and know servers are registering to the DA server
properly. I then changed the DHCP setting to give out Directory Agent (code
78), NDS Tree Name (code 86), NDS Context (code 87) and NDS Server (code
85). Reloaded dhcpsrvr and saw the machine is getting the SLP info from the
DHCP server.

My question is on my Novell client properties, I have specfied the Tree
name, context and preferred server and when does the login use the DHCP
assigned DA or it reads the computer's registery setting to know which tree
or server to authenticated to.

If it preferred to use the DHCP to roll out the DA information. In the
past, I always let the SLP multicast to find the DA.
