DHCP authoritative Statement Keeps Reverting Back To False When Using The DNS/DHCP Managment Console

Whenever an option is added, removed, or changed within the DNS/DHCP console for the server object, the authoritative statement reverts to false.  If set to true and saved the setting will stick, but the next edit (even though it may not involve this option), the setting gets reverted back to false.  This appears to happen for all non-English versions of the DNS/DHCP management console.


As of December 19, 2011, this patch has not yet made it to the channels.  Please contact Novell Support for the patch.
