we have a 2-nodes cluster based on Netware 6.0 + NCS 1.6, and we are
looking to migrate to Netware 6.5 + NCS 1.7. In order to do a soft
migration, is it possible to mix in the same cluster a node with Netware
6.0 and another with Netware 6.5?
Thank you in advance,

Well you got a few options here.
You can do a in-place upgrade if you have direct access to the server.
If you don't have direct access you can do a across the wire upgrade.
If you want to replace your old hardware you can use the migration
where can i get the migration wizard?

We have a Netware 6.5 sp4 Cluster with cluster services 1.6. We want to do
a rolling upgrade of the system.
Could anyone point me to the right place so I can do this correctly or
give me some advice.

We bought new hardware for our 2 new Netware 6.5 servers for cluster. Now we

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

I can't seem to find documents that discribe this process clearly.
I beleive that the deployment manager must be run first (2 node
running 5.1 SP4 and 8.6.2 edir). The deployment manager does
and then restarts the servers without cluster services loaded.
Do I then upgrade one by booting with NW6 CD? And then upgrade the
the same way? And what happens to my shared NSS volume? When do I
do the manual commands to upgrade it, before upgrading the first node,
before upgrading the second node, after the deployment manager? The

Are there any special steps to take, for updating the Eguide and the NDPS

We've got a Netware 5.0 server running Groupwise 6.0 and we would like

doing this? We've got a spare server where we can dump things
Should we upgrade Groupwise first or Netware?

I am going to upgrade from 6.0 to 6.5. I have link to go to download a
21KB zip file. Is that all that I need to do the upgrade or is there
something else that I have to get? Do I just burn these files to a CD
and run it, to perform the upgrade? Any help would be good. Thanks
Ah -- no -- it is quite a bit more complicated than that.
1) Do you have a license for 6.5?
2) What service pack do you have installed on the 6.0 server?
3) Is the intent to do this as an in place upgrade?

Good day !
There is a little problem .
We have fully functional tree Netware 6.0SP5 on a four servers (it works
VERY FINE through 3 years).All servers are Dell PE2600. None of postfixes
neither patches released after SP5 not installed - pure SP5 only.
One weeks ago we've got a new server - Dell PE 1950 8))) specially for
some tasks, and we found that NW 6.0 NOT APPLICABLE for this type PE.Well,
we have licensed 6.5 and we thought about tree upgrade, but it was
planned as "not-in-this-month" task. And now I think ,that acceptable

So will it be okay for me to run 2 NetWare 6.5 nodes and 1 NetWare 6.0 node
in my 3 node cluster? I'm waiting to upgrade the NetWare 6.0 node because
it looks like I can't run the ZFD midtier server on NetWare 6.5. I'm
slightly worried about having both versions in my cluster. Thanks in
Yes, they will work together in the same cluster. The intention is to
allow rolling upgrades, so you shouldn't do this on a permanent basis.

Can I upgrade a 2 node cluster directly from support pack 3 to support
pack 8? Any known issues when doing this? If all resources can be
migrated to the other node, can this be done without bringing the
cluster resources down? Does the cluster services version get updated
during the support pack install? Any tips greatly appreciated.
The cluster version will be upgraded during the upgrade and SP 8 does
have a fix for some cluster panning id issues. If you have a problem
