Upgrade Netware cluster from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
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...groupwise 5.5 on Netware 5.1 upgrading to Netware 6.5

I just did this last week and had no problems. One key thing to note is =
that you should not upgrade your version 5.5 GWIA until AFTER all of your =
MTA's & POA's are upgraded. The v6.5 MTA/POA will work with the older =
GWIA, but the older POA/MTA will not work with the new GWIA.

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...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

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
188.8.131.52 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...Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5 upgrade.

I currently have 2 netware 5.1 servers and want to upgrade to netware 6.5.
The Netware 5.1 servers are running NDS 7.47.
Should I upgrade to edir on the netware 5.1 servers before the migration, if
so what are the steps, as I read the update on the netware 5.1 download
section that said that the edir update cannot be applied to a 5.1 server
running NDS 7.x or can I use NDS 7.47 on the 5.1 server during the migration

We are currently running Netware 5.1sp5 ds 8 version 8.82
I want to install a clean netware 6.5 server and make it the Master

the appropriate path to take?
You can install the NW6.5 server as a Pre-Migration server, there will be no
other application installed on the server, use MW7.1. In order to do this
make sure all you other servers have eDir8.7.3 install and update the SP to
the latest available for NW5.1. Get a copy of the tru...NetWare 5.1 to NetWare 6.5 Upgrade Question
I have a customer with a NetWare 5.1 Network. They have a main location
with with their primary NetWare 5.1 server, then they have multiple
locations which also have their own individual NetWare 5.1 servers which
are all part of the same tree. They are looking to upgrade to NetWare
6.5 and also install GroupWise 6.5. They are also going to have one new
additional server when they upgrade. I am wondering which would be
better, to start a new tree on the new server machine and

I am getting ready to make the move to 6.5. My servers are not in a
clustered environment. Will my 5.1 boxes do a straight upgrade to 6.5? Or
is there any prep work I need to do before hand? Thanks in advance.
