Edirectory 8.8.5 update on Netware 6.5 sp8 server
I have a netware 6.5 sp8 server which is running edirectory 8.8.4. I'm
getting an error when I try to upgrade to edirectory 8.8.5. I'm using
nwconfig and Installing the product by pointing to the nds8.ips file in
the extracted folder. It goes through the file copy but then it goes
back to the nwconfig screen. It never asks me for the admin
When I check the logger screen I see:
Loading Module DSCHECK.NLM [ INIT
If I run dscheck.nlm manually, it runs successfully, however it fails
when doing the upgrade.
...Netware 6.5 SP8 EDir 18.104.22.168 & OES2
Hi, I have a network of NW6.5 SP8 servers running EDir 22.214.171.124. I
introduced my first OES 2 Linux server (All Patched - EDir 126.96.36.199). I
want to add this as a R/W replica. Can I add it as a replica like I
would with NW? I.E. Console One - TREE - Partition & Replica View - Add
Thanks for any advice you can give.

Yes... eDir is eDir is eDir regardless of the platform/architecture.

Hello, i'm attempting to upgrade my file server's edirectory to version
8.8.5 on my netware 6 sp5 server. everytime i got to run the upgrade it
copies files and then returns back to the console screen and doesn't
continue with the installation. when i look at the logger screen i see
this "server-5.60-141: Unaable to find load file
SYS:\System\nds8temp\install\ICDM.NLM" i even copied that file off of
the edirectory cd to this directory on the server and when i tried to
start the installation again, i found myself facing the same problem.

I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 184.108.40.206 servers. When I do a version at
the Console the result is Novell Open Enterprise Server Netware 6.5.
I'll assume this is OES1 as we have not upgraded the Netware servers to
The eDir 8.8.5 documentation lists the prerequistes as OES2 and OES2sp1
as well as Netware 6.5 sp7 or higher.
Do I have to upgrade these servers to OES2 before I can upgrade to eDir
I would like to first patch these servers to sp8 and then upgrade
eDirectory to 8.8.5. Will this be OK?
All the documentation I come across specifies OES2 only and no...I want to bring up a new OES Server in my Netware 6.5.8 with eDir 8.8 sp5 environment (9 Servers Total all the same versions)

We have an eDirectory tree running servers from NetWare 5.1 to 6.5.
The tree started it's live from NetWare 4.1. :-)
The master of the [Root] is running NetWare 6.5 eDirectory 8.7. When
we installed SP7 into it, eDirectory was updated to 220.127.116.11, NDS
Version 10553.73. Everythings is fine.
However, we installed a new NetWare 6.5 server using the SP7 Overlay
CDs into a child partition, we were surprised that the new server was
installed with eDirectory 8.8 (NDS Version 20216.51). The server is

____________...eDir 8.8 on Netware 6.0 SP5?
Is eDir 8.8 on Netware 6.0 SP5 possible. All our servers are 873 shipping
and we were going to go to 873 SP9 but thought we might as well go to 8.8
SP2 but it says Netware 6.5. Or is that simply because 6.0 is no longer

We have two clustered NetWare 6.5 sp4a servers.

I have 5 NetWare 6.5 servers that hold a replica:
SERVER1 eDir Ver 18.104.22.168 (NW 6.5 SP6) (Master)
SERVER2 eDir Ver 22.214.171.124 (NW 6.5 SP6)
SERVER3 eDir Ver 126.96.36.199 (NW 6.5 SP6)
SERVER4 eDir Ver 188.8.131.52 (NW 6.5 SP5)
SERVER5 eDir Ver 184.108.40.206 (NW 6.5 SP3)
I have another 9 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers that have no replica with DS.NLM
Ver 8.8 SP4.
I want to enable a RW Replica on one of these newer servers such that I'll
have a replica running eDir 8.8.
Any issues with adding a replica to one of these NW6.5 SP8 servers and then
making it the Master?
...Netware 6.5 SP7 and eDir 8.8 SP2
I have recently inherited an infrastructure from someone who has left
for greener pastures.
I have noticed that the person had upgraded bot the NW6.0 and NW6.5
servers to NW6.5 SP7.
However when typing the VERSION command on each server's console, I
notice a minority seem to report:
6.5 SP7 eDirectory 20216.51 [which seems the correct version of eDir
8.8 SP2 for SP7 overlay etc]
The majority of servers report:
6.5 SP7 eDirectory 10553.73 ??.
How did this happen?. Should I reinstall eDirectory 8.8 SP2 directly
over these ones?.

I don't see why not.
