SUSE Linux Point Of Service 11
After changing scDhcpExtern to TRUE a completely reinitialize of the branch server is necessary.
This can be done with the command:
# posInitBranchserver --reinitialize
During the reinitialization the "internal" branch dhcp server will shutdown and not longer started. A manually stopping is not necessary.
The old dhcp.conf file can be used as a template for the new dhcp server. Using that that template the following options are important:
option domain-name-servers [new dhcp server IP]
next-server [branch server IP]
By using an external DHCP server it is not longer possible to get fix addresses for the POS clients. This has to be add manually or by using your own script.
