Novell Netware - New IT Administrator

Hello, I am new to Novell.  What would you do if you had to replace an
IT Administrator in a Novell Netware environment?  What is the best way
to make sure there is no way the old IT Admin can gain access to the
system? 

Any tips/ideas will be helful.

Change the admin password? Make sure there are no other admin-type 
accounts that he can access. Bar him physical access,

Thank you for your responses!  

I understand the procedure would be something like this...

Remove physical access to environment.
Change Administrator password on server.
Verify there are no other admin-type accounts unaccounted for.
Remove any accounts not accounted for in remote access and VPN

Should everyone be required to change password?  How would one find out
if any remote access software has been installed?

Thanks!

Irsmith,
> Should everyone be required to change password?

Yes, but if you have not done so already, then you should have a 
password policy that requires everyone to have a passwors and requires 
them to change it say every 30 or 60 days.

Anders, well put sir! - - irsmith - The 'Universal Password Policies'
within iManager would be an excellent tool for that.

NetWare 4.11, NetWare for SAA, NetWare 6.5
Hi, 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 5 new netware 6.5 servers (2 in the main office and 3 in the 3 external offices). My plan is to install 1 server in the main office with ip and ipx installed (no scmd) to keep contact with the nw4saa server. The second ser...

Netware Admin Tools Not Accessible/Installed
I installed OES Linux with Netware and then used the migration tool to migrate a Netware 4.11 server to the new server. Everything has migrated fine (all the users are there, the NDS tree is intact) but the administration tools on the OES server are not functioning. For example, 1) "http://localhost" does not pull up a page, 2) ConsoleOne runs but the option under tools to pull up the "remote console" for this Netware server is not evern there. The bottom line is at this point after reading through the documentation I can find no way to gain access to the Netware ...

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...

Netware to Netware migration or P2V?
Im in the process of virtualizing all our servers to VMWare ESX 3.5. We have a server that is NW 6.5 SP7, runs ZENWorks 7 and holds all of our application files as well as images. Im trying to figure out the best way to virtual this server. Usually its a pretty straight forward process, but Id like to downsize the VOL1 volume so its not taking up so much space on our SAN. VOL1 is 890GB total, but only has 230GB used. Id rather not "waste" that space on the SAN untils its truly needed. Im curious how everyone would approach this: would you do the P2V and somehow shrin...

NetWare Administrator
An interesting problem, but I'm not sure if it's directly related to Novell or if it's a more general problem on my computer. When I try and open NetWare Administrator, all I get is a tiny hourglass and then nothing. It never opens and it doesn't appear to be in the running process list anywhere. I can open other programs just fine, NWAdmin is the only one that I can't. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Eric Have you tried download a fresh copy? Are you running it from the network? Will it open on other PCs? I presume you have the Novell Client inst...

Netware 6 and Netware 5
Have to upgrade a 3.12 server. Already have a 5.0 server. Is there any problem installing a NW 6 server into a network that consists of a NW 5 Server with master nds on NW 5?

Thanks Tim Patch the nw5 server to the latest support pack and ds version and use the deployment manager to prepare your tree and you should be fine I'd say.

Netware 4.1 with Netware SAA 4.0 upgrade to Netware 5.1
Dear sirs, I would like to know what is the correct procedure to upgrade a Netware 4.1 with Netware for SAA 4.0 server to Netware 5.1. This is the last server we have to upgrade, all the other are already on netware 5.1. Can I just proceed with a inplace upgrade? If so, Do I have to change anything in Netware for SAA? What kind of service pack should I use on Netware 5.1? After upgrade do I need saa40020.exe for netware 5.1? Just a few questions to make sure I'am on the right track.

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...
