Edir 188.8.131.52\ 184.108.40.206\220.127.116.11
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 18.104.22.168 is
stable but Iam not hearing if 22.214.171.124 is ok. Iam on 126.96.36.199 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.
8735 came with N...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.
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 188.8.131.52, 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 184.108.40.206 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 220.127.116.11 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 18.104.22.168 SMP, Install from NW65sp7.OVL = eDir 8.8 SP2 SMP
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 22.214.171.124
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?
installing just sp7(not the overlay) does not install or patch edir88 at

I have 5 NetWare 6.5 servers that hold a replica:
SERVER1 eDir Ver 126.96.36.199 (NW 6.5 SP6) (Master)
SERVER2 eDir Ver 188.8.131.52 (NW 6.5 SP6)

SERVER5 eDir Ver 18.104.22.168 (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?

Is the eDir 8.7.3 that comes in NW 6.5 SP1a the same as the eDir 8.7.3
(full install) that was released a few weeks ago? So if I update a
6.5 server to SP1a, I will not need to install 8.7.3 over it? Just
checking, been around NetWare version numbers long enough..... Thanks
correct, it's the same version.

...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.
...Upgrade NW5.1/eDir 22.214.171.124 to 6.5/sp2/eDir 126.96.36.199
I have some NW5.1 servers running eDir 188.8.131.52. 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? The overlay CD
installed eDir 8.7.3. Is this going to cause a problem? Thanks for any

__________...Upgrade NW6.5 SP8 from eDir 184.108.40.206b to 8.8.5
We currently have 10 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers with eDirectory 220.127.116.11b.
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?
...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.
On 06/22/2010 02...upgrading Edir from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 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 220.127.116.11 edir on them.
