Specs: Netware 6.5 sp8
I have installed Novell 6.5 sp8 OVL on the server and specified a server IP address. Then using iManager I setup DNS and DHCP server objects and it's zone and subnets including IP ranges. I am trying to start the DNS/DHCP server though iManager to test it but I get "Cannot communicate with the target server, because the IP address of the target server has not been configured." I tried configuring DNS/DHCP server IP though iManager however u can't edit the field and I have not been able to find any Documentation from Novell as to where u set the ip HELP

See More: DHCP will not start ip missing

Any error shown at the server console?

What happens, if you start dhcpd at the server console by:
load dhcpd

?

I am under Netware 6.5 SP8 and when I type load dhcpsrvr on console I have no error. In the logger screen it says: DHCPSRVR is ready for Remote Access support at date and time "and after another line that said:" No LAN based IP address assignment is Possible "
In the Java Console and in iManager I get the error E0010 :
"Can not Communicate with the target server, Because The IP address of the target server Has not Been configured."

Does the server has a Read/Write Replica on it?
The DHCP server needs at minimum a Read/Write Replica of the container,that holds DNS Zones and DHCP Subnets, the the DNS and DHCP object.

If it has a R/W Replica, you may have inconsistant eDirectory.
In that case, run DSRepair, Advanced Options, Repair Local Database.
Then run a DSRepair unattended full Repair

My physical server is master replica. But in fact, my DHCP and DNS servers are linked to an object NCP server that I created with iManager. This server has no IP address and does not really exist, it is an object! I do not really understand why the DNS and DHCP servers need this type of server?
I created this type of server because when I use my physical server I also have the same error.

Ok, what's about the dsrepair?
Have you run dspepair at the console prompt, as mentioned in Response #3?

I suggest to start ConsoleOne, rightclick the NCP server object, choose properties, click the tab others and check, whether these 3 entries are there:
DNIP:DHCP Server Reference
DHCP_YOURSERVER.YOU_OU.YOUR_O
DNIP:DNS Server Reference
DNS_YOURSERVER.YOU_OU.YOUR_O
DNIP:LocatorPtr
DNS-DHCP.YOURSERVER.YOU_OU.YOUR_O

I have run Dsrepair and everything was ok.

Then I checked the nexts attributes and change nothing

DNIP:DHCP Server Reference
DHCP_NCP_server.cegep (object server, my physical server is MT_DHCP-DNS.cegep - which one I should use ?)
DNIP:DNS Server Reference
DNS_NCP_server.cegep
DNIP:LocatorPtr
DNS-DHCP.cegep


After that when I go in the general tab / information on the server and I get the following error:

Error - 603 Could not find the requested attribute ....

If this is a new DNS / DHCP server service, you configured at that server, I would delete the DNS and DHCP object from the eDirectory, run dsrepair (both tests) as described above.
You may have to run this dsrepair tests more than once, because dsrepair (as the name says) tries to repair the errors. So give it more than only one shot.

When eDirectory is healthy, means every test runs without any error, recreate DNS and DHCP.
I would suggest to use ConsoleOne for it. I never had any problems with ConsoleOne for this tasks.

ok I will try it, but what about NCP server ? Do I need it ? Or should I use my physical serveur for the next attibute ?

DNIP:DHCP Server Reference :
DHCP_NCP_server.cegep (object NCP server without IP add)
or
MT_DHCP-DNS.cegep (my physical server with IP add)
???

I tried both and with my physical server I can load it with -d3 but it will not start ... With the NCP server it does not even load

The physical server object is already an NCP server object. I've no idea, whatfore you created another NCP server object.
I linked the DNS and DHCP to the NCP server object that was created during install, there is no additional NCP server object.

Finally it works ... I was tying my DHCP server to an object created from NCP_server iManager and who was not a real server ... So no IP. I do not know that all Netware server is also an NCP server. After I linked my DHCP server to my physical server, everything has been settled ...
Thank you very much!
