Netware 5.0+Groupwise 6.0 -->> Netware 6.0+Groupwise 6.5
We've got a Netware 5.0 server running Groupwise 6.0 and we would like
upgrade it to Netware 6.0 with Groupwise 6.5. What's the safest way of
doing this? We've got a spare server where we can dump things
Should we upgrade Groupwise first or Netware?

current config and then upgrade GW....Installing Netware 6.5 in a Netware 5.0 network
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

Currently have a number of 5.0 servers - 1 tree. I want to introduce two
6.5 servers into this tree running Edirectory 8.7. Can I do this, and what
is the best procedure ? Do I need to update the 5.0 servers (Patches, DS.
nlms). I am not going to install Edirectory on the 5.0 servers - don't
think I can anyway.
Do I need to extend the schema on the existing 5.0 servers before
introducing 6.5 servers and Edir 8.7 into this tree ?

...Installing Netware 6.5 Servers in a existing Netware 5.0 network
I need to install two new Netware 6.5 Servers into
my current Netware 5.0 network with Service packs 4/5.
What updates do I need to apply to the Netware 5.0 Servers
and do I download the nw65sp1b overlay file only and use
that to run deployment manager, or do I have to install
sp1 first. Also can you purchase nw65 licenses seperately
Thanking you in advance for help given.
As a minimum the 5.0 servers need nw50sp6a, os5pt2a.exe, wsock4f.exe,
flsysft3.exe, ts524o.exe, and Set client file caching enabled=Off. The DS
version would preferably be edir851.exe plus edir8530.e...Migration from Netware 5.0 to Netware 6.5
I am install new hardware and new netware. The old server is running
NW5.0 and the new one will be running NW 6.5. Is ther an easy way to
move users and data from the old server to the new one. I know that I
will not be able to move the printer and will have to set all of them on
the new server. We have about 800 users on the old server.

If not, you may need to get the earlier 6.5 Migration Wizard -- it is
available in the cool tools area.

I posted earlier last week and followed the advice however, it blew up
during the renaming of the new/old servers before reboot(using the
migration wizard). We had to back out and reinstall directory services on
the old server and now we are back to where we were before. We still have
to do the migration and 6.5 is very new to us.

Can one tell me how to upgrade a Netware 5.0 Single Server to a Netware

What are the specials one has to look after?
You should look into Migration Wizard to ease this process.

I have a netware 5.0 (no sp) with ds 7.45 on a Compaq Proliant 3000.
This server is alone on my tree.
I want migrate this server to Netware 6.5 to a Compaq dl 380 G2.
What is the best method ?
Thanks for answer
You will need to deploy updates on the 5.0 server prior to running the
Migration Wizard. No SP's at all on the 5.0 server? That is rare indeed.
Also, how many users on this server and how much data?
