Novell iManager 2.5
Role Based Management plug-ins for DNS and DHCP


When you are setting the Scope for a user with the Role Based Management plug-ins for DNS or DHCP you can choose to have the rights automatically assigned.  However, if the Locator object and the Group object do not exist in the branch of the tree where you set the scope the user will not be able to manage DNS or DHCP in that portion of the tree.


You can manually assign rights for the user to the Locator and Group object.  After assigning these rights they will be able to manage DNS or DHCP in that branch of the tree where the scope was set.
