Netware 6.5 DHCP Services

Posted on 2005-05-14

I have a Netware server and I think it is providing DHCP services. It shouldn't be and it's not assigning IP addresses to anyone, but when I shut down the server it says that it is also shutting down DHCP services. Where do I check to see if DHCP is enabled or disabled? I would like to turn it off.

    It may also appear as:


    To insure it is not loaded in the future, simply place a # in front of that statement, like so:


    To unload it from the server without having to down/reboot the server, at the console prompt enter --> UNLOAD DHCPSRVR
