Creating SRV record in the DNS DHCP Management Console


Unable to create SRV record without owner
Blank SRV record owner
Wildcard SRV record

SRV records, unlike A records, do not require an 'owner' or specific 'host' when created.  The DNS DHCP management console, however, requires this field to be non-null before it allows the creation of the record.


Accept the update to novell-dnsdhcp-javaconsole from the channel.  Anything > than 2.0.1-0.38 will contain the fix.

Once the update is complete, you will need to re-install the java console from the server as the updated file is pushed down to the client during install.
