upgrade edir 8.7.3 to 8.8.2 or 8.8.3?
Our tree: Netware 6.5SP7 and OES2/Linux, edir 220.127.116.11b ftf1 and edir
I started to install new servers with edir 8.8 some month ago, some of the
edir 8.7.3 servers will be switched of before long. Now I want to upgrade
the remaining 8.7.3 servers to 8.8. It seemed clear to me that I wouldn't
install 8.8.2 if 8.8.3 is out. But after reading the postings here, I am

I have a couple of NW6 servers running eDir 8.6.2 - I'd like to update
them to 8.7.3 to take advantage of all the features of iManager 2.5
1. Is this a free upgrade or am I required to purchase 8.7.3 ?
2. Is 8.8 a better upgrade option ?

On Netware yes.

I'm going to install a IDM 3 on SLSE 9 in a production environment to
synchronize some systems. What is the best solution for the identity vault

This meta directory will be used only to consolidate some information that
will be accessed with a web interface and will do some provisioning. Are
there some known bugs with eDir8.8 ?
If you are ever going to want to go to 8.8 and above I would start with
it. It probably isn't quite as stable as 126.96.36.199, but upgrading to 8.8
once IDM is installed is problematic and requires ...upgrade edir 8.8.2 to 8.8.3 on OES 2 Linux
What is the best way to do this? I tried the .tgz ./nds-install method
and had errors. (IDM 3.5.1 is also installed on this server).

Is it possible to export the tree structure from a edir 184.108.40.206 tree and
then import it into edir 8.8 running on Linux ? If so how would I go about
doing this is there a doc somewhere that goes over exporting the
structure ? I am wanting to do this to replicate our enviroment of 17
trees for test and dev purposes for IDM.
Ironically, use IDM...one-way driver should be very safe. You could do
it w/LDIF but you'll need to try the import several time with the -c

Im need to back rev 8738 to 8737 for Netware 6.5 SP5 server. I've looked
though TID 10100930 but am not sure if it applies since FACT only list
this is for Solaris, Linux or HP. Please let me know if it's ok to follow
this TID if not, please point me in the right direction.

Why? You should have a damn good reason to do this. Backrevving
eDirectory isn't something that should be done lightly.

Ok Iam confused with the roll back issue. What is the Edir that is working
Iam hearing Novell rolled back 8.3.6 but I can only see that 184.108.40.206 is
stable but Iam not hearing if 220.127.116.11 is ok. Iam on 18.104.22.168 and Iam having
issue with keeping edir healthy. So is this my issue and or how do you roll
back if I need to. Also I see some said " dsrapir full attened is not the
preferred way of getting ds healthy so what is this about I have not heard
of this before.
Thanks to anyone who can clear this up while I wait for ssupport to get
back to me on the phone.

Hello everyone. We're currently running eDir 126.96.36.199 on several NetWare
6.5 sp5 servers. What are the pros/cons of upgrading to eDir 8.8 vs.
applying the 188.8.131.52 patch? Any compelling reason not to do the upgrade?

Basically that so many apps have ptroblems with 8.8. It should really
have been called 9.0. Lots of new features though.

...eMbox and eDir 8.7.3 to 8.8 upgrade
Two questions: All six servers are Netware 6.5 SP6 with eDir 220.127.116.11. I
am preparing a migration (physical, identity) to OES 2 SP1 Linux. One of
the servers in my tree does not have a SYS:/SYSTEM/embox folder or
embox.nlm. It would appear that this was somehow not installed with the
last migration or update.
How do I install it, or what do I reinstall to resolve this? I want to
merge a partition into the root.
Second: I will need to install SP7 or SP8, and then install eDirectory

I have about 30 NW6 and 10 NW6.5 server. I want to upgrade to eDir 220.127.116.11
across the board.
I was also thinking of upgrading NICI 2.6.5 and adding the SECUPD2a and
This requires me to reboot the server 5 times fro the NW6 servers and 4
times for the NW65 servers.
Is there a consolidated support pack that I can build to upgrade all or
some of these together.
Just cycling the server 5 times will take about an hour!

I have servers running NetWare 6.5 SP5, NetWare SP7 and OES Linux

GroupWise 7.02 is compatible with eDir 8.8. Is there any particular
order that I should upgrade the servers? On the server that holds the

Currently running 126.96.36.199B on SLES 10 SP3. Can I update directly from
188.8.131.52b to 8.8.5 or do I have to do something like 8.8.0 first? From
reading the documentation it looks like I can just download 8.8.5 and
upgrade from there.
I backed up my current 184.108.40.206b install with dsbk, though I couldn't
get the -e flag (to back up NICI) to work, I kept getting an error. Is
that option not supported with dsbk in 8.7.3? I ended up manually
copying some of the NICI config files and directories to a backup
Anything else I should be mindful of before upgrading to 8.8.5...
