We are in the process of migrating over to a new Netware tree.  I am looking for a way to change the Tree, Context and Server my users log into without having to touch every workstation.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

How about distributing the details with DHCP? Personally here I don't use Netware for DHCP/DNS, but it's quite easy to do with ISC DHCP on *nix.

I *do* use NetWare's DHCP service, and it supports the necessary Option fields just fine. That was my next query - how does the Asker distribute IP addressing information?

If they already use DHCP, or if this is not a sudden cutover (different users will need to access different Trees for a period of time) then DHCP may not be the tool for this.

Of course, I gotta wonder why bother setting up a new Tree? What was wrong with the old one?

We are currently in a DHCP environment so that seems to be the way to go.  As for the new tree that was a business decision.

Doesn't the client have to be configured to accept that information from DHCP, with what's in the Windoze registry for NWGINA overriding DHCP-provided services unless the client is prepared to use DHCP?

Those settings (on the DHCP Settings tab) could probably be pushed via NAL (if you have ZENworks) or via a login script .reg file or maybe via ACU (if the client update service is configured) if you don't have ZEN.
