Setup DHCP on OES2 Linux for Avaya 5610 phones

I’m trying to setup DHCP on a OES2 Linux server and can’t seem to get the phones working. PC on the network will get addresses but the phones will freeze/lock up on DHCP.

My network is as follows:

10.10.1.x(vlan=101) = data
10.10.2.x(vlan=102) = voice
10.1.10.x = servers

Novell servers running on SLES 10 SP2 x64 with OES2 SP 3 x64

I’ve created a dhcp service (dhcpsrvs) and 2 subnets (10.10.1.0 and 10.10.2.0) and a pool in each subnet (datapool and voicepool). In the global options I created a string option called SSON176. In the options for subnet 10.10.1.0 I’ve added option 176 with params L2Q=1,L2QVLAN=102. In the options for subnet 10.10.2.0 I’ve added 176 with params L2Q=1,L2QVLAN=102,MCIPADD=10.10.2.1,MCPORT=1719.

I’ve been able to get it working on a Win2k3 server but that server was a temporary quick fix. I need to bring that server down soon and would like to get it working on my Novell server.

Can someone help me figure out what I’ve done wrong or left out?
