We migrated our netware 6.5 dhcp to oes11sp11.

Since then, we are receiving receiving these messages constantly in our
dhcp.log file and our messages log. These logs are accumulating and
need to be manually erased to avoid taking up too much space.

Our subnet is 172.16.x.x and we use
172.16.0.1 to 172.16.7.255

dhcpd.conf>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
ldap-server "172.16.0.5";
authoritative;
ldap-port 636;
ldap-ssl ldaps;
ldap-base-dn "ou=XXXSAU,o=XXI";
ldap-method static;
ldap-debug-file "/var/log/dhcp-ldap-startup.log";
ldap-dhcp-server-cn "DHCP_oes-main";
ldap-referrals off;
ldap-tls-reqcert never;

DHCP is managed through the dhcp-dns console java app

How do we get rid of the authoritative messages. various post point to
adding "authoritative" to the top of the dhcpd.conf file but it does not
appear to have stopped the messages.

In addition, how do I control or eliminate all the
DCHPINFORM/DHCPACK/DHCPREQUEST messages, which overload the messages and
dhcp log files.

Thanks.
