How to Modify Imported DHCP Data (DHCP Manager)

  1. Become superuser on the server to which you imported data.

  2. Examine imported data for network–specific information that needs modification.

    For example, if you moved networks, you must open the Addresses tab and change the owning server of addresses in the imported networks. You might also need to open the Macros tab to specify the correct domain names for NIS, NIS+ or DNS in the macros that specify them.

  3. Open the Addresses tab and select a network that you imported.

  4. To select all the addresses, click the first address, press and hold the Shift key, and click the last address.

  5. From the Edit menu, choose Properties.

    The Modify Multiple Addresses dialog box opens.

  6. At the Managing Server prompt, select the new server's name.

  7. At the Configuration Macro prompt, select the macro that should be used for all clients on this network.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Open the Macros tab.

  10. Use the Find facility at the bottom of the window to locate the options that are likely to need modified values.

    DNSdmain, DNSserv, NISservs, NIS+serv, and NISdmain are examples of options that might need modification on the new server.

  11. When you locate an option that needs to be changed, select the macro name and choose Properties from the Edit menu and change its value.
