Netware 6.5sp7 edir 8.8 sp2 --> 8.8 sp3 errors

Good Morning!
On a tree with all netware 6.5sp7 boxes, I am getting the following
error on all of the servers that had edir 8.8 sp2 installed. Any server
that still had 8.7.x installed upgraded fine.

During the install of edir 8.8.3, as nwconfig restarts with the
nds8.ncf file (which follows) I get the errors listed below.

nds8.ncf file
-----------------
delay 3
#  9/18/2008  3:21:48

unload nwconfig
#  9/18/2008  3:21:48

nwconfig b=SYS:\SYSTEM\NDS8TEMP\install\nls\4\nds8.ils
s=SYS:\SYSTEM\NDS8TEMP d=C:\NWSERVER e=c:\error.log
rf=sys:\_netware\response.rsp
#  9/18/2008  3:21:48
-----------------

The reload fails with a Loading Module DSCHECK.NLM [INIT FAIL]

I can run dscheck.nlm fine without a problem outside of the script.  My
tree appears healthly with everything in sync.  The c:\error.log file
lists the following:

The NetWare Loadable Module
SYS:\SYSTEM\NDS8TEMP\SYS\SYSTEM\DSCHECK.NLM could not be loaded.
(nwconfig-6-127)

An error occurred while parsing file
"SYS:\SYSTEM\NDS8TEMP\INSTALL\NLS\4\NDS8.ILS", line 187, at or near word
or symbol "}". Error description:  Unknown variable "HC_STATUS".
(nwconfig-6-232)

An error occurred while parsing file
"SYS:\SYSTEM\NDS8TEMP\INSTALL\NLS\4\NDS8.ILS", line 187, at or near word
or symbol "}". Error description:  Syntax error. (nwconfig-6-232)

I've check versions of the various files (from nwconfig.nlm to icmd.nlm
et al) and they look similar to the other servers that were still 8.7.x
before their upgrade.  Any pointers would be appreciated.  I have 8
servers, 3 of which are doing this.

Thanks!

Never seen this and many people have run the 883 upgrade successfully 
so it _has_ to be something specific to you (you lucky dog :-)...

I would first look to see if you have multiple DSCHECK.NLM or 
NWCONFIG.NLM files as it may be loading an old one (even though the 
error log shows a full path).

Also, I would check to see if all the dirs/files referenced in the 
nds8.ncf file exist.  and the dirs/files mentioned in the error.log 
file as well.

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 8.7.3.9, 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).

Netware 6.5 SP7 and eDir 8.8 SP2
Hi, 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?. Regards Trailblazer ...

eDir Netware 6.5 sp6 8.7.3.9 to 8.8.5 ??
I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 8.7.3.9 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 OES2. 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 8.8.5? 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...
