I am running the novell client 4.91sp2 and the firewall is disabled on my
XP machine. I have turned off antivirus and still cannot get it to work.
Later I tried to run the Hot Fix for the GWIA gw702hp1gwia_reva.exe and I
cannot get the install to work following the instructions for download and
extraction and trying to run it from CMD install /copyonly.
If anyone has worked through this I would really appreciate their solution.
Harrelc ...NetWare 6.5 SP3 Upgrades Issues
This seems to be an issue that has not been addressed by Novell!
During the upgrade of a server the GUI will hang at "Closing
Installation Files". This results is NRM, & iManager not functioning
even though the server is upgraded to 6.5.
Looks like Novell has skirted around this issue. Obviously if you read
the forums this is happening frequently. This has happened to about 7
out of the 10 servers that I have upgraded thus far.
Just exactly when is this going to looked into. Are you passing it on
to Novell to inform them that this is happening? I currenlty have a...eDirectory 8.7.3 install error "Installation can only be run on a NetWare 5.1 Server..."
I have a server with eDirectory 8.7.1 running on Netware 6.5 SP 5 that I am

NWCONFIG I get the following error message:
This Installation can only be run on a NetWare 5.1 Server (with Support
Pack Version 5.1.6) or a NetWare 6 Server (with Support Pack Version 6.0.3).
But the server is Netware 6.5.

I would like to upgrade our IDM2 server to IDM3. One of the prerequisites
for IDM3 listed is iMgr 2.6. The server is currently running iMgr 2.5. I
unzipped iMan_26_NW65_Standalone.zip to SYS:IM26 on the server (NW6.5/SP3).
I then attempt to install from the STARTX GUI. When it gets to
the "Select Plug-ins to Install" screen it tells me "No plug-ins found or

The error message being a bit, uh, vague, I do a little research on
