Generally you don't want to copy or "migrate" directories in the root of 
SYS unless you put them there. If this is a email and web server as you 
say then you need the directories that they are installed in. You have 
both Apache & Novonyx directories which is not typical for a 5.1 server 
but hopefully you know where your web pages are. If you are unsure if you 
need something copy it to the SYS.MIG directory, then if you need it 
later you can copy it out (this only makes the process longer if you 
don't need it). The point is you don't want to "contaminate" the new 
server with the directories from the old server so unless your directory 
is unique (like GWISEPO) then don't copy root to root.

Don't forget to you can always reinstall DS on the old server if you need 
to get to the files.

Migrating NDPS from NetWare 5.1 to NetWare 6.5 (New Server)
Good Afternoon - I am working on migrating NDPS currently running on a NetWare 5.1 (about to be decommissioned) server. I configured a new NetWare 6.5 server and need to move the Broker / Manager and Printers over to the new box. Can I simply load BROKER and MANAGER on the new server and then just copy the resource directory where all drivers reside?

Migrating DHCP from NetWare 5.1 to Netware 6.5 OES server
Yes...we still have some legacy NetWare 5.1 servers in production. Hard not to admire servers that haven't been rebooted in years :) That said - we're migrating and consolidating these remaining "vintage" NetWare boxes to virtual 6.5 OES servers. Is there a TID or defined procedure for performing this migration? Just one tree. The legacy 5.1 servers are on a subnet (VLAN) that we're abandoning - with the virtual servers being on a new VLAN. With multiple VLANs - we're using a dhcp helper in our core switch configuration - so we'll have to update ...

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...

Migrating Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5 Clustered...
Hello everybody. I have a Netware 5.1 server with 150 GB of data on SYS:. We final system is a two-node Netware 6.5 cluster with 36 GB SYS:-volume local in each server (HP DL360) and a MSA1000 with 1.5 TB of data. Since the local nodes can't "hold" the 150 GB of data, I had to get the MSA1000 into action. To do that, I needed to install the two nodes in a temporary tree and install the cluster software, which all works fine. But: If using Novell Migration Wizard, my destination isn't any of the nodes, but the virtual disk-system and I can't get this t...

eDirectory version + migrating from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
Hi, I planned on migrating from Netware 5.1 to netware 6.5 My edirectory version is 8.6.2 (DS 10330.03) I saw that one of the requirements is to have at least eDir 8.6.2 installed. So my question is : Do I have to upgrade my netware 5.1 servers to eDir 8.7.3.2 to ensure the upgrade to work well?

Migrating mulitple NetWare 5.1 servers to NetWare 6
I have successfully done a trial migration from an old NetWare 5.1 server to a NetWare 6 server. I am now faced with the task of up grading 10 of our Netware 5.1 servers to NetWare 6 servers on our WAN at the different remote sites. We have T1 links between the sites. What is the best order to carry out the migration, i.e. which server should I start with? Since it is recommended that the source, destination an client workstation be running on a common LAN segment, I guess I will have to be taking the client workstation and destination server to each si...

Migration Wizard 6.5
I have 3 servers that I am replacing with new hardware and have been attempting to use the Migration Wizard 6.5 to replace these servers - 5.1 to 5.1. The new servers are Dell 2650s with the B57 NIC cards, which are problematic according to Dell and some TIDs on Novell Support. I put an INTEL NIC card in the server to do the migration, which worked until the source server was taken down (during the NDS Migration Step). When the Wizard checks to see if the temporary tree's DS was removed from the destination server, it stops responding and I click on yes to keep waiting, but it n...

Upgrade Netware cluster from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
Hello! 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 with upgrade wizard on both ser...

Migrating Netware 6.5 servers into a Netware 5 tree
We are currently running 4 Netware 5.0 servers with DS 7.58 installed. We want to migrate these servers over to newer servers that have Netware 6.5 freshly installed. We were wanting to do this one server at a time. What do we need to do to our existing tree in order to bring our Netware 6.5 servers over into the tree? Download the NW65sp1a overlay ISO and burn it to a cd (There are several CDs in the SP1a set). Run NWDeploy.exe from the root of the OS CD. THis will prepare the tree for your first NW6.5 server. -- Timothy Leerhoff Principal Consultant Independant Experts...

NetWare 5.1 SP3 server no longer able to ping NetWare 5.1 SP8 server
I'm hoping someone can help me rather quickly. We upgraded on our master NetWare 5.1 server from SP3 to SP8 on Thursday morning. Unfortunately, one of our other NetWare 5.1 SP3 servers just stopped time syncing with it on Saturday. We desperately need to get it talking again because of Groupwise, etc. I was wondering if upgrading it to SP8 would resolve the problem. Unfortunately, our time sync isn't working, and I'm afraid of trying SP8. Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! On Tue, 19 Jul 2005 16:03:22 GMT, eberlyd@bbsol.us wrote: >I'm hoping so...
