Wondering if someone might be able to help me. I am trying to migrate from netware to OES11 on top of SLES11sp3 and have migrated everything over so far except the DHCP and DNS. First I will start with the dns server. When I try to rcnovell-named start here is the error I get from the logs:

19-Jan-2012 14:26:58.136 general: main: notice: starting BIND 9.3.2 -u named

19-Jan-2012 14:27:00.158 general: server: critical: exiting (due to fatal error)

It seems like the named.conf file is not available or was never created. With OES11 DNS is not available in iManger so setting up DNS or DHCP with iManager isn't an option like some forum posts read. Now when I try and migrate over DHCP using the gui migration utility it fails and reports this in the logs:

and in /var/logs/dhcp-migration.log it reads:

An Error occurred while loading the ldif files on destination tree.

I have downloaded the DHCPDNS java utility and setup my service, subnets, and pool on the new OES11 server and believe I have configured everything correctly. If anyone can help me with either one of my problems that would be awesome.

Thanks again,
