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

we have 5 netware 4.11 servers. 2 are in the main office and 3 are in

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

You can run them but not sure without issues since some of those clients
were not tested against NetWare6.5

Have to upgrade a 3.12 server. Already have a 5.0 server. Is there
any problem installing a NW 6 server into a network that consists of a

Patch the nw5 server to the latest support pack and ds version and use the
deployment manager to prepare your tree and you should be fine I'd say.

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.
...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

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 ?

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 5.0 to Netware 6.5

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 6 and netware 6.5 with USB

>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.

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.
