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...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

Not officially. It will most ...Netware 6.5 install into Netware 5.1 Tree
I was able to install my first Netware 6.5 server into my Netware 5.1
tree but I have a couple issues.
I already had 400 Edirectory Licenses installed so I didn't install any
Netware 6.5 Client licenses.
When I changed the login script to map to the new server no one accept
admins could map any drives. We were getting 8901 error codes.
Do I need to install client licenses to make this go away?
Also no replicas of the master Netware 5.1 server was installed on the
Netware 6.5 server, so how do I force the new server to hold a
read/write replica of the master.
Thanks ...Netware 5.1 SP7 to Netware 6.5 SP1b
Did first in-place upgrade in Production yesterday.
1) Install seemed to hang at the very end. Closing installation files.
(We let it set for 20 minutes and then
closed diaglog box). Then was able to restart server. Server
was not hung.
2) Can not access iManager
Do I have to recreate CA for 6.5?
My test network which has different hardware works. I will compare results.
Any suggestions on what I can try next.
Was finally able to get iManager to work.

We currently are running NW 5.1, NDS 8.85c.
Are there any ramifications installing a NW 6.5 server into our present
tree? I realize the upgrading NDS 8.85c to eDirectory would be the
recommendation, but for various reasons we are not going to upgrade DS.

As long as you execute the deployment manager once, no.

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
220.127.116.11 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.

Is it best to upgrade my master replica first so my replica in a mixed
environment is a 6.5 server? Or at least make my master replica server

If so why?

I have 7 NW65SP5 and 1 NW51SP8 nodes in the same tree, I need to patch
the NW65SP5 nodes to SP7, can I go straight from SP5 to SP7, or do I
need to go from SP6 to SP7, and how will that affect the NW51SP8 node?
You should be able to go direct -- the 5.1 SP8 should be ok here.

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 :

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 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

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&...Netware 5 to Netware 5.1

Purchase. An upgrade,and I suggest 6.5 in that case. SBS version if you
have less than 50 users.
