Netware 5.0 to Netware 6.5 eDirectory failed during eDirectory migration
Does anyone have a recommendation for fixing a failed eDirectory Acrross
the wire migration?
The file migration went fine, the backup of trustess went fine.
During the eDirectory migration when it downed the source server and tried
to finish up with the destination server it did not complete.
It told me to copy the autoexec.mig to autoexec.ncg if it did not complete.
It also had some other files to copy over as well, but I don't know what
In what state server stays? Can you get it up and running that you could
run commands like dsrepair?

I am installing a new 6.5 server for the first time in a network with
three 4.11 servers.
Support pack 9 is installed as well as DS6.21
Deployment Manager has been run and confirmed servers were ready.
Install was going easily until I get to eDirectory Installation.
My knowledge of Netware is limited but I have been working with these 4.11
servers for the last 2 years. (I had clasroom training on 5.1 over 5 years
ago and I have yet to use any of it.)
My first thought was the communication was incorrect...(bad IP or IPX
setup?) but the eDirectory context Browser has found my tr...eDirectory 8.7.3 install error "Installation can only be run on a NetWare 5.1 Server..."
I have a server with eDirectory 8.7.1 running on Netware 6.5 SP 5 that I am
trying to upgrade to eDirectory 8.7.3. When I start the install through
NWCONFIG I get the following error message:
This Installation can only be run on a NetWare 5.1 Server (with Support
Pack Version 5.1.6) or a NetWare 6 Server (with Support Pack Version 6.0.3).
But the server is Netware 6.5.

I am posting this in this forum because, while it is a netware
installation, it appears to be actually an edirectory problem.
I am having dificulty installing a netware 6.5 server into a 4.11 tree.
The install doesn't go any further than "installing edirectory . . ."
when you try to join an existing tree. The only error I see in the logger
screen is "Admin Volume Startup: Error resolving volume name = -601"
which may be normal for this phase of the install. The file server object
(FS1) has been created, as well as another object (PS_FS1). The server is

Server is already configured with OES2 installed. When attempting to
install edirectory on the server into my server context ie.
ou=servers,o=company, the install fails with the following error:
ERROR UNABLE TO BIND EDIRECTORY THROUGH LDAP
NDSCONFIG FAILED TO CONFIGURE AND START EDIRECTORY
Details of the error show nothing unusual.
If I attempt to install eDirectory on the server into ANY other
context, the install succeeds. I am thinking that there might be an
object in my server context that is causing the install to fail. When
testing this I am ...OES NW 6.5 SP3 install into NW 6.0 eDirectory 8.6.2 Tree
I will be installing OES Netware 6.5 SP3 into an existing 8.6.2 eDirectory
tree on a NW 6.0 server. Documentation I have read via NWDEPLOY, etc. says
8.6.x is the minimum you can install NW 6.5 into.
I will also be installing Identity Manager shortly after, which I read
requires eDirectory 8.7.3 or above.
Should I install NW 6.5, which has eDirectory 8.7.3 already and migrate
over to it from my old servers, If that's even possible? Or, should I
upgrade eDirectory running on the NW 6.0 servers to 8.7.3 and then

Hi, I am trying to install iManager, Virtual Office, iPrint etc from the
Netware 6.5 support pack 6 CD. It went fine upto certain % and then asks for
the authentication to the server. I give admin user id, password and
context, but it says that this user does not have sufficient rights to
install, try with other user id. After clicking OK button, it didn't asks
for the authentication again and installation stops at that %. It even
didn't come out of that. Can anyone tell me what could be the reason for
this and how to solve this?

New install of Netware 6.5. System boots the Netware CD and the install
program starts. DOS partition is created and formatted, SYS volume is
created and mounted, files are copied. At the end of the file copy process,
an error message is displayed saying there is no CD-ROM drive attached to
the system and to load the correct .HAM driver. Tried loading the IDECD
driver along with the IDEHD driver. Nothing works. Any ideas ?
This is probably an IDEATA.HAM issue with the chipset of your server. I
suggest you try doing your install from a NW6.5 SP1.1. overlay CD rather

Have you verified that the tree is healthy as per TID 10060600.

I've downloaded the eval software, and was intending to install it, and
then license it - we already have the license, but not the media. I tried
to install it on a brand new machine with the following config:

* Dual hot-swap PS
* 4x 36.4Gb UltraSCSI disks on a RAID controller (config'd as RAID-5)
* Xeon 3.0 GHz
* 2 Gb RAM
This system came with absolutely no OS pre-installed.
Once the process gets to INSTALL.BAT, the machine goes nuts. I can see the

Currently have Netware 5.0 Servers sp4 and some sp5
We intend to install two new cluster servers running
the latest version so would like to install two 6.5
Netware Servers which includes a 2 node cluster.
Is it possible to install netware 6.5 into my existing
Netware 5.0 network.
Also we currently are running a 2 node cluster on netware
5 running the first ver of cluster servers 1.0.
We found that this version wouldnt support our subnet mask
of 255.255.240.0 but only the default one 255.255.255.0.
Can the new version of cluster services support 255.255.240.0
...Netware 6.5 install into Netware 5.1 Tree
I was able to install my first Netware 6.5 server into my Netware 5.1
tree but I have a couple issues.
I already had 400 Edirectory Licenses installed so I didn't install any
Netware 6.5 Client licenses.
When I changed the login script to map to the new server no one accept
admins could map any drives. We were getting 8901 error codes.
Do I need to install client licenses to make this go away?
Also no replicas of the master Netware 5.1 server was installed on the
Netware 6.5 server, so how do I force the new server to hold a
read/write replica of the master.
