I've got several Netware 6 servers running 8.6.2, and two Netware 6.5
servers running 18.104.22.168. I'm interested in putting an OES linux server
in the tree, but am concerned about whether or not it will place nicely
with the older 8.6.2 edirectory version. Anyone have any thoughts on
whether or not this would go well with my existing environment? Would
it be worth upgrading the netware 6 servers to a new Edir version
first? I'd like to avoid upgrading the netware 6 edir versions if
possible. We're hoping to simply phase those out with new OES linux
boxes later (rather...upgrade edir 8.8.2 to 8.8.3 on OES 2 Linux

OES2 Linux servers installed in an existing tree that largely consists
of OES NetWare 6.5 SP7 (eDirectory 22.214.171.124) servers. Is 8.8.2 backwards
compatible? I read through the OES2 documentation, including section
14.2.3 (eDirectory Coexistence and Migration), but found the information
to be lacking.

I tried to create and revoke user certificate via iManager 2.6 running
on NetWare6.5 SP5(OES SP2). First of all i tried ConsoleOne 1.36d to
verify just revoked certificate status. C1 works as expected and reports
that certificate is invalid. Then i tried to click iManager "Validate"
button to verify just the same certificate. Nevertheless iManager
reports that certificate is valid. I tried to refresh CRL object but
revoked certificate was still valid for iManager. I tried two versions

Have a 4 NetWare server environment: 2 NetWare 6.0 SP3 running eDir 8.6.2
and 2 NetWare 5.1 SP7 on NDS 85.30.
Have TID 10072620 that I'm following. Have verified the versions of
Certificate Server, NICI and Java meet the minimum requirements.

Since I'm already running eDir 8.6.2 in the environment, the Schema should
already have been extended. I don't need to perform these steps do I? If I
do will I mess something up with the current directory DB? Can I just move
to step 5?

We have 6 nw6sp4 servers currently at edir 8.6.2. We will be adding a new

we need to be at 8.7.3 on our existing servers when we add the nw65.

You own a license for eDir 8.7.x when you own NetWare.
I would suggest 8.7.3 and apply the ir2 or ir3 patch as they fix 2
nasty memory leaks.

I wonder if ASA 8.0.3 was compatible with his version ok linux kernel:
Linux aneto 2.6.8-2-686-smp
And this version of libC : 2.3.2
If not, why recent kernels wouldn't be supported by ASA 8.0.3 ? Isn't there
any ascendant comptability ?
Please read this page:
It is impossible to test every ASA version on every kernel & glibc
combination. From the above page you will see that 184.108.40.20603 was tested
with 2.6.0, 2.6.4 and 2.6.9 kernels.

I have read most of the posting for getting a NW 5.1 environment to

environment, sorry for the amount of information.
Our second tree contains 3 Dell servers (more than enough horse power
for NW6) running NetWare 5.1 SP6 with eDirectory 8.6.2 SP3 with both
and IP bound to a single NIC. These servers set behind a load
product and provide LDAP authentication and look ups for our mixed OS
