Netware 5.1, Netware 5.1 SP6, Netware 5.1 SP8, Nici
I'm building a test network that is currently a mess. This network will be
used to test the migration of my 10 netware 5.1 Sp 6 servers to NW 6.5. I'm
putting two netware 5.1 servers and one MS 2003 server into the test
network. Testserver 1 is a 5.1 SP6 server with a master replica. When
installing Testserver 2 using the NW51SP6 overlay, the installation failed
with a css.nlm "waiting for xmgr" error. Consequently, I was going to create
a 5.1 server and then install the SP6 overlay or the SP6 depending on what
worked best. My NW51 original disks are scratched and...NetWare 4.1 Upgrade To NetWare 4.2
We are currently running a 25 user netware 4.1 with patches and need
upgrade to netware 4.2. Is this a patch? a new OS? Can this be
downloaded and installed?
The reason for the upgrade was so we could use Backup Exec 9

We bought new hardware for our 2 new Netware 6.5 servers for cluster. Now we
've cluster on Netware 5.1 with shared disk system. I wonder what design of
upgrading is better. Is it better that i install Netware 5.1 on both new
servers and for begining make migration from NW5.1 to NW51 cluster (just
changing the hardware for servers) and the second step make inplace
migration to Netware 6.5?
Or is it better to install Netware 6.5 with latest support packs on both new
servers, prepare existing NDS tree for cluster migration, and make migration

we have 5 netware 4.11 servers. 2 are in the main office and 3 are in
external offices, connected via vpn (DSL). The 2 servers in the main
office are in tree1, the other 3 servers have there own 3 trees.
One of the servers in the main office runs nw4saa and hostprint and we
have to keep this running approx. 8-10 months. But we want to install

We have to install a Netware 4.2 server in a Netware 5.1 SP6
with NDS Version 85.30 (Twenty 5.1 Servers). We also so have three
Netware 6 servers with eDir 8.6.2
Can we do this?
If so what patches and problems should we expect?
Yes, you can do this. Apply SP9 after installing 4.2, then the latest
DS update, v6.21. You can get them here:

I need help on how to upgrade Netware 4.1 to Netware 6.5
I installed Netware 4.1 on a single network server with 5 workstations back
in 1995. Since then I have only had to upgrade some patches to correct for
y2k. The server has been running great, but now the servers hardware is
How many users?
With <30 or so, I would just do a new install. You need a fairly
differently configured box to do 6.5

...netware 5.1 sp8 in a mixed netware 5.0 / 5.1 nds7 tree
Any problems doing an overlay SP8 for Netware 5.1 (on only 1 server, the
backup server) in a mixed environment and then upgrading Groupwise and
Primary File Server later on off-hours?
Specifically, the question is, all servers in the tree are NDS 7.62b The
SP8 seems to require NDS 8.x. Will this 1 server running NDS 8.x cause a
problem in the same tree with all the other 7.62b servers?
It shouldn't cause a problem -- heck, NW 5.1 SP8 will 'play' with NW
4.2 servers (DS 6.21).

What should be done first....netware or zen upgrade?
Any input on the sp's of either?
Do all servers have to be at the same netware version? IE. can I
upgrade just the zen server to netware 6.0 and leave the master at

I'm trying to virtualize 3 netware 5.0 servers and unfortunaly my

I'm not sure about NIMS, but the rest of the product versions listed
should work well with NW 6.0, so you don't have to upgrade them before

...Upgrade to Netware 6.5 from Netware 5.1
Currently on NW5.1 with a few servers at main and remote offices. Want
(need) to upgrade to newer NOS, so my logical choice would be OES with the
Netware option (and so that I can start playing with the Linux option).
On the training side I'd appreciate a few pointers. I currently have a
NW5.1 CNA and several years experience. I'd like to get the necessary
training to be able to upgrade and administer Netware 6.5, hopefully with
some exposure to the Linux flavor on the side to get me started. Preferably
a certfication would help but not mandatory. In the old days I&...Upgrading from Netware 5.1 to netware 6.5
I plan to migrate my 4 Netware 5.1 servers to netware 6.5.
What action do I have to do first?Upgrade DS version, latest patchs...
My configuration is :
- Netware 5.1 SP5
- DHCP is running
- NDPS Broker, Manager
- DS version 10330.03
- ZfD 3.2
- DirXml 1.1 + passwordSync
I also plan to migrate to NIM 2.0 (or IDM, I don't know how to call that!)
and ZEN 4
What is the best method?Any feedback experience on projects like this
would really be appreciate!
Email is also acceptable!

I have Netware 5.1 SP7 & eDirectory 8.7.03 with 4 servers. I would like to
upgrade all servers to Netware 6.5 but only 3 can be upgraded at the same
time as 1 server is in a remote office.
Should I upgrade the master server in the root partition first? Also, will
the upgrade change the eDirectory version? Should I upgrade to eDirectory
22.214.171.124 immediately after the Netware 6.5 upgrade?
From the eDirectory point of view, your servers are already up to date.
So an upgrade to NW 6.5 will not upgrade your eDirectory and as such
will not create comp...
