This one's baffled me...

I have set an IP address in the Directory Agent List within the Novell
Client properties (under the Service Location tab) and set it as static.
When I reboot, it holds the address within the setting and does so until I
login to the Novell VPN client. Once I've logged in, disconnected and
rebooted, the entry for the Directory Agent disappears.

I've tried changing the Novell Client (currently 4.9 but was 4.9 SP2) and
I've tried different VPN client settings but to no avail.

Any help to get this address to stick would be greatly appreciated.
