eDir Netware 6.5 sp6 to 8.8.5 ??

I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 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 not OES1.

Ignore the OES and OES 2 stuff for NetWare.... just think of it as you
have on the NetWare side with SPs and such.  OES 1's name meant SLES 9
with extra stuff to make it more like NetWare, and NetWare servers were
also called OES so customers could go with either OES using a NetWare
kernel or a Linux kernel.  So it's all just naming.

I would probably also recommend going to NW 6.5 SP8 before going to 8.8.x
since I'm not sure which version of eDirectory comes with 6.5 SP8 and if
you go to the latest stuff now (8.8.5 Patch 2) the SP could, in theory,
backrev it, and that wouldn't be fun.  I don't know if it happens that way
but the SP isn't updating while eDirectory is.

Good luck.

Thank you for the quick response.  Getting too Linux oriented to
remember everything!

Plan is Netware 6.5 sp6 to sp8.

Then eDir to eDir 8.8.5

Appreciate the response!

NetWare 6.5 SP7 and eDirectory 8.7 or 8.8
I don't know if this is by design or we have missed something. Anyway, 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, 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 eve...

eDirectory and eDirectory 8.8.5
I have a NetWare 6.5 SP 7 file server and we are planning a Migration to OES 2 in the coming weeks. The plan is to set up the OES 2 box to run in conjunction with the NW 6.5 box until that time that we can migrate services off from the NW box. The issue that I want to check on is whether eDirectory will synchronize with the eDirectory version that is running on the OES 2 box which I believe is 8.8.4 until you patch the server. If anyone has any gotcha's or suggestions as to things that they have done to make this work I would really appreciate them. Have a great morning ...

Netware 6.5 SP6 > edir 8.8.3 Upgrade
I have performed an edir upgrade to 8.8.3 on a Netware 6.5 SP6 Servers in a large tree, where 8.7.3 was there previously. There was no errors during the install itself including during the health check. After doing the install however, I am confronted with many edirectory inconsistencies. (even on master replica). Eg many user objects have group memberships which were not there previously, and if checking the corresponding group object and its membership the user is not there ?. I have run many dsrepairs (no errors) and timesync is all in check. I did many backups before I performed...

NW6.5.6 + SP7 = eDir SMP, Install from NW65sp7.OVL = eDir 8.8 SP2 SMP
Hi. A tree has three servers, all updated from NW6.5.6 to NW6.5.7 and now another server had to be installed into that tree. We used NW6.5.7 overlay CDs (OS + Products), and this server is eDir 8.8 sp2 while those NW6.5SP7 was applied to are eDir In http://www.novell.com/download/ I was looking for 8.8 update, but just find iManager plugins and patches for 8.8 During applying SP7 I didn't see any option to apply eDir 8.8, what did I miss?

Upgrade NW5.1/eDir to 6.5/sp2/eDir
I have some NW5.1 servers running eDir I want to upgrade them using the NW 6.5 sp2 overlay CD. I assume I will have to reapply the NICI, NMAS, PKI and eDir patches after the upgrade?

Upgrade NW6.5 SP8 from eDir to 8.8.5
Hi, We currently have 10 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers with eDirectory 4 with Full Read/Write Replica's and 6 with Filtered Replicas. We're planning to replace all the NetWare servers with Sles/OES2 next year, but in the meantime I'd like to upgrade them to eDirectory 8.8.5. I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on the best way to achieve this on NetWare and can we mix versions? Is there a straight forward upgrade path on netware or should I just skip straight to migrating replica servers to Linux starting with the master? Thanks! Peter ...

upgrading Edir from to concerns
Need to upgrade the server that holds the master replica so that a new OES2 server can be installed in the existing tree. This was per Novell engineer. Backing up the replica is the first thing. My concern is with services that are running on other servers ex: webservices, GroupWise, Iprint. IManager is on the master server now. have 23 servers in the tree which a quarter of them already have edir on them.
