Netware 6.5 change IP - SERVER DOWN!

Netware 6.5 change IP - SERVER DOWN!

I have a Netware 6.5 server and just changed the IP address from to
I changed every file I could find from the Novell tech site and ran inetcfg to make changes there too. Everything comes up find but the I start seeing duplicate address warnings from the console. The MAC of the dup is the MAC of the server. When I nmap the server it shows a MAC of MAC Address: 02:00:00:00:00:00 (Unknown)

That's not the right MAC address and I can't figure out why it's showing like that. I need this server up NOW as everyone here is getting bounced every few minutes. I know there is no real conflict and I've been trying to figure this out since late last night.

RE: Netware 6.5 change IP - SERVER DOWN!

Never mind I found the culprit it was a missing sub mask on another system with a similar MAC address.
