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

Is there any dsmaint procedure or TID available
for "netware 6.5 to netware 6.5 hardware upgrade"?

The Migration Wizard v. 8

this for you.

Sorry, no replies to e-mail respon...Netware 5.1 Webserver and new Apache
I have a client that is currently using an intranet web server to host their
internal site to do internal web site stuff and is going to be replacing
that server with a Netware 6.5 server which will be using the new Apache as
the web server.
The NW 5.1 is running the NW Enterprise server as the web server. What do I
need to do to get those pages to work with the new Apache. Is it a matter of
copying data and repointing to the new IP address of the new web server or
is it more complicated than that. I have not done this before or had any
experience doing this sort of thing and can use...NetStorage on Netware 6.5 only salavage netware 6.5 files
Am I correct in understanding that NetStorage on Netware 6.5 Sp3 (oes)
will only let you recover deleted files on Netware 6.5 servers? When I go
to a Netware 6.0 server (I have 5 at sp4, and one at sp5), I am unable to
get properties of a folder, outside of a little bit on file size.
But, when I go to a netware 6.5 server (1 currently) I can get the tabs
and everythign related to std file system info.
Is the correct behaviour? I hope not, this is a nice tool, and would
like to use it in place of local rights to admin data (helpdesk of 6) to

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.

Not officially. It will most ...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?

Personally, I'd upgrade Netware first, make sure GW works in it's

We would like to upgrade our Netware 5.0 server to Netware 6.5, and I
looking for a plan of attack. Attempts thus far have failed:
We have 5.0 on a 38G drive partitioned into several volumes, with
38G partitioned into a couple of volumes available for other data, and
unused 8G drive. Everything is backed up to tape. We use the
to run Groupwise, and the Netscape enterprise web server also.
If I boot the 6.5CD from DOS, it will let me install a new 6.5 server.
Not what I want.
If I mount it in NW5.0, and use the GUI to install it, it fails with...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
the migration wizard 8 supports a nw5.0 to nw6.5 migration.
...Netware 5 to Netware 6.5 upgrade
I am in the process of upgrading a Netware 5 server to a Netware 6.5 server
and have a few questions:
1. I would like to run both the Netware 5 and Netware 6.5 server at the same
time on the same network. (Is there a migration tool that will transfer the
data only, having different file server names?)
2. By doing the above, and having the NDS replicate to the new Netware 6.5
server, does this cause any problems? (Eventually the Netware 5.0 server
will be taken offline)
3. Is there any pdf file or technical docs on upgrading from Netware 5 to
Netware 6.5 and what the issues might be?...Netware 5.0 to Netware 6.5
What are the minimum SP levels for 5.0 in order
to install Netware 6.5 into a existing Netware 5.0 tree.
I would patch NW50 to the latest SP. Then run the deployment manager from
the NetWare 6.5 CD. It will give you an idea what will be needed on your

Use the deployment manager to verify system levels.

In netware 6 and netware 6.5 is a USB harddisk supported?
>In netware 6 and netware 6.5 is a USB harddisk supported?
NetWare 6.0 : no
NetWare 6.5 : yes
Note that USB hard disk performance is rather disappointing under NetWare.

...Netware 6.5 Licenses on Netware 5
We had the need to add 5 user licenses to our Netware 5 server. We knew
these were no longer available but were informed that Netware 6.5
licenses are backwardly computable. We purchased an additional 5 Netware
6.5 user licenses and added them to our tree using NWadmin.
I read in various forums that 6.5 user licenses aren't assigned to a
server I left it at that. An hour later they were still not being used.
It then occurred to me that Netware 5 may not be able to deal with
unassigned licenses so I have assigned them to the correct server. Again
having left it about an h...Netware 6.5 and netware 5.0
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 ?
