I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I have some questions regarding SLP. I'm attempting to get a well aged Netware environment into this decade, and I don't know a whole lot about Novell products. I recently installed File Manager, and had some problems getting the Engine to start. File Resporter support emailed me and said my logs indicated that SLP wasn't configured properly. I'm not entirely sure what that is, so I've been digging.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but SLP appears to be a way to resolve the location of network resources. As far as I can tell, we simply don't use it. I've ran slpinfo and pointed the client at as many servers as I could think would be a DA. The list still comes up empty. Is this normal? What happens if I assign one of my OES 2015 servers as a DA? Will it cause problems? Do I need SLP?

Thanks for your help.
