Have installed, apparently wrongly but it's (mostly) working,
OES2/SLES10 etc. Slick enough. And much easier install than OES1.

My mistake this time around was installing SLES *then* installing OES
afterwards as an add-on and this may be where some odd effects are coming
from, I will blow it away and try again.

Other things.
Does the DNS/DHCP Management Console from NW6.5 et al work properly with
OES2/Linux?

The DNS side of it seems ok, but DHCP seems unable to 'see' anything,
despite creating DHCP server (and having it operating)
with iManager.

If not, do I HAVE to use iManager (yech) to do DNS/DHCP management, frankly
it's horrible and lots of clicking back and forth needed. (I HATE web
interfaces).

Two odd things.

DNS created with iMangler seemed to get the server A record mangled, all the
others were ok, but I fixed it with DNS/DHCP Console and it seems ok now.

I had a machine running on the network that was getting an IP from an
embedded DHCP server in a DSL modem.

Turned off the DSL DHCP and added a mac address entry for the machine in
question and a new ip address.

Did a release/renew on the machine, it came back with the same IP it had
originally but DHCP information proving it came from the DHCP server on the
OES2 box. Eh?

Nothing I do seems able to convince it to use the IP address I've
assigne/created for it.

Yes, I have triple checked that the mac address is correct.

Further, I created a bogus entry with a bogus mac address and assigned it to
the 'wrong' ip address it was getting,

Release/renew, same. Still comes up with the original IP. Can't seem to
list dynamically assigned DHCP addresses in iManager to see what's going on,
which is why I wanted DNS/DHCP Manager to work as it shows them all...

I'm going to blow OES2 away tonight and try the hopefully correct install
procedure and see what happens...

Box is a salvaged dual P3-800mhz with 1gb and an 80Gb ide drive.
(Yes, it's just for testing/learning of course)

Only other thing is that when a drive is first mapped, first time you open
it seems to take a VERY long time. (nearly 30 seconds)
After that it's fine, some reason?

Any/all advice appreciated.
