Novell Netware DHCP options 66 or 150 for IP phones

Hi there,

I have to deploy IP telephony at a site where Novell 5.1 is used as the DHCP.

My customer thinks the DHCP cannot supply options 66 or 150 to the phones.

Is anyone out there working with Novell DHCP and IP phones ???

Thanks for your inputs,

Eric

Novell's site says you can upgrade to

NetWare 6 DHCP server and DNS/DHCP console.

This will allow you to use options 66 and 150. I beleive option 66 is supported in novell 5.1 with a patch.

Will the phones be on a different VLAN ? If so why not use the call manager as the dhcp server and set the DHCP helper address for the phone vlan to the ip address of the callmanager

I hope in your deployment you have a voice gateway to the PSTN. You could even run the router as a DHCP server, just for the phones. You can specify an option 150 or 66 to the phones. Or as suggested in the other post, why not use the CCM as the DHCP server ???

Thanks guys,

I should have been more precise in my question.

We are deploying a "managed service". The service definition states that the end customer has the responsibility of managing local DHCP for PCs and phones.

Although my backup plan is to use some other DHCP (CM or IOS), I'm really looking for someone who can confirm that Novell DHCP is effectively working with IP phones and detail how it was done.

Thanks anyway for the info and I will be looking into the Netware 5.1 DHCP patch.

Hey Eric,

Caught your thread here and am interested in how you are going about providing IPT as a managed service. I am looking at it, too. However, the problem I keep bumping up against is billing. How do you plan to bill for LD and directory assistance calls? To date, the only way I can effectively come up with is getting separate gateways for separate clients and then lumping them into their own partitions.

I'd be interested in any thoughts you have on this.

Thanks,

D.

Billing is definitely the biggest issue with IP Centrex. A ggod software package and/or an out sourced partner are critical to success. We are able to deliver our CDR records to our billing company and they deliver us the seperate bills for each customer.
