Exporting Novell static DHCP hosts to a text file for import into DHCPD (CENTOS)

I am trying to find a way of exporting 100's of statically assigned IP addresses in Novell's DHCP server.  The reason for this is because I am taking down the Novell DHCP server and placing a DHCPD (CENTOS) server in its replacement.  I have seen the the data is stored in a file somewhere for DNS to read it however I am not sure where this file is located or if it is readable to be able to import into DHCPD.

Depending on the Netware or Open Enterprise version...

On Netware you can use the DNS/DHCP management tool to export DHCP data as described in the documentation:


On OES2 it's basically the same:

Thanks for the link and your assistance.  I am not a Novell boffin, so this is a bit of a stupid question.  There is iManager which doesn't have the option of export.  Where may I find the information to install the Java Management Console for DNS/DHCP?

Again, depending on your Netware version...

On Netware 5.1, 6.0, 6.x it is located in SYS:PUBLIC\dnsdhcp.

On OES2 it is located on the media CD, install the package novell-dnsdhcp-javaconsole

Or download it from download.novell.com:
