Does anyone know what data types I should use on an MS DHCP server to emulate Novell DHCP options 85 and 86?

Thanks!

Start the DHCP console, connect to the server, and right-click the server. Choose "Change predefined options" (or similar, not using an English version).
the following should work, but, as usual, test this first before releasing it into production:
Click the "Add" button, name the new option "NDS Servers"; data type should be an array of ip addresses, code is 85.
Click the "Add" button, name the new option "NDS Tree Name"; data type should be string, code is 86.

I read that but couldn't figure out what data types to use.  I will try the ones you suggest and get back to you.

Thanks!

See this, it refers to 78/79, but you can see what oBdA is getting at:
