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 shrink the volume and VMware disk (dont know how to do that
currently, or if its even possible) - keep in mind that even if I shrunk
VOL1 with portlock or whatever -before OR after- the conversion, Id
still have to find a way to shrink the VM disk to get that unallocated
space outta there.  Or would you do a migration using SCMT to a new
Netware VM and avoid the fanagling of VOL1 resizing?  Any other options
Im not aware of?

You cound do this.  Run a trustbar on the volume you want to shrink. 
After doing that copy the file some were to keep it safe.  Have a good
bckup of the volume.  create the volume that size you want it to be in
VMWare, restore the data, then restore the trustbar.

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 5 to Netware 6.5 migration
I was reading on the migration pdf file about migrating from Netware 5 to Netware 6.5 and one section states that the minimum requirement is Netware 5.0 and another section states Netware 5.1 with service pack 6. Along with different NDS versions and edir versions being supported. This migation would be an across the wire migration to new hardware. Any concrete minimum requirements would be great to have before an upgrade is done! Thanks the migration wizard 8 supports a nw5.0 to nw6.5 migration. http://www.novell.com/documentation/migwiz80/nmw_80/data/bswlrly.html ...

Hardware migration from Netware 6 to Netware 6
Hi, I am trying to migrate hardware from Netware 6 to Netware 6 using Novell Netware Migration Wizard 7.1.

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.

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 5.x to Netware 6.5 migration
I have a few questions in regards to migrating Netware 5.x to Netware 6.5 server. I have 2 servers, one running 5.1 the other running 5.0, I want to consolidate those two servers into one new Netware 6.5 server on new hardware. I know I must run the migration wizard for the one server, but do I have to run the migration wizard twice, i.e. on both 5.x servers, or can I simply migrate one server and copy the data from the other server without migrating the nds objects? Also, the data on one server is to much to do a migration wizard over the weekend, slow data transfer, so can I mig...

Slow Migration to Netware 6 from Netware 5.1
The current environment is 2 Netware 5.1 Servers running SP5. I have a new server which I would like to install into the tree with Netware 6 or 6.5. My question is if I install Netware 6,6.5 on the new server will I have to immediately upgrade the others, or will the network be okay with a mixed environment. Things currently work very well and I dont want to be forced to do an upgrade on all the servers until I am ready. Thanks Brian Brian, Mixing 5.1 and 6.x is not a problem. Just make sure that the 5.x servers are appropriately patched prior to introduc...

Help With migrating from Netware 6 to Netware 6.5
Hi All, This is my first post, so I am sorry if it is a stupid question. I am trying to complete a hardware migration using the migration wizard, but I've hit a snag and don't know how to get past it. I have taken both servers off the network and plugged them into a Gig switch at home to help with the migration speed. The data sucessfully migrated without a hitch, but when I try to complete the NDS/ eDir Migration I get the following error Server 'IHSCS1' won't return the correct time. Please check the timesync status on this server. --- Error ca...
