Upgrade of eDir 8.6.2 to 8.7.3 / 8.8
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.

No. 8.8 is a complete brand new *Version* wi...[IDM 3] eDir 220.127.116.11 or 8.8
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
version , eDir 18.104.22.168 or eDir 8.8 ?
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 22.214.171.124, 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).

I am on eDir 126.96.36.199 and is working on upgrading eDir to 8.8.2. Should I
do 8.8.3 instead but it is very new.
What is everyone's option?
8.8.3 is not out yet. 882 with the latest ftf is very stable.

Hello everyone. We're currently running eDir 220.127.116.11 on several NetWare
6.5 sp5 servers. What are the pros/cons of upgrading to eDir 8.8 vs.
applying the 18.104.22.168 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.

...how to backrev edir 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52
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 22.214.171.124 is
stable but Iam not hearing if 126.96.36.199 is ok. Iam on 188.8.131.52 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.

Currently we have eDir 8.8.2 in our tree and I have several servers NDS
6.5.5 / eDir 220.127.116.11 and would like to upgrade all to NDS 6.5.7 / eDir
8.8.2. Is there a simple way to do this, it's not so simple from the
patch readme's and I'm unable to find a TID saying I can go directly to
8.8.2. Thanks for your help.

It was with sheer disbelief that I encountered the same fault in the
V8.8.2 upgrade that was in the 8.7 upgrade 5 years ago. I am still
wondering what I have wrong with my servers that this never works.
I removed all extra applications, added STARTX to the autoexec

Two questions: All six servers are Netware 6.5 SP6 with eDir 22.214.171.124. 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.

Investigating the upgrade to 8.8 from 8.7.3.
Right off, I am struck dumb by what I find in TID 10099872:
"OES Linux Requires Newer NCP Engine
To upgrade to eDirectory 8.8 on OES Linux SP2, you must use the
"oes-edir88" channel which includes the needed NCP engine.
"Warning: Do not install eDirectory 8.8 without first installing the
newer NCP engine for eDirectory 8.8 or your server might be rendered
inoperable. Also, do not install this updated NCP engine on a server

This requires me to reboot the server 5 times fro the NW6 servers and 4

Is there a consolidated support pack that I can build to upgrade all or

Just cycling the server 5 times will take about an hour!
