is there any prep work I need to do before hand? Thanks in advance.

We have a netware 5.1 sp5 server running nds 8 right now and would like to
upgrade to eDirectory 8.6.2 (the one that comes with netware 6) without
going to netware 6. We also do not want to apply service pack 6 as we only
do service packs during the summer when the students are not around.
I've noticed that the eDirectory versions available for download on the
Novell website are 8.7.1 and 8.7.3. Is there anywhere I can get the 8.6.2

Hi, i have a netware 5.1 with edirectory 8.62 and i buy oes with idm 3.0.1
starter pack, because i wantto sync Active Directory Domain.
what can i do??? i put oes into the netware 5.1 tree or i can install oes
in a new tree and sync the two edir with IDM 3.0.1 driver for edirectory
You would have to install at least one OES server into your tree. Note
that unless you upgrade all the servers that hold replicas of Users, you
are not likely to get password synchronization from eDir to AD working
because that functionality requires eDir 8.7.3 or higher.
Fathe...Upgrading a Netware 5.1 server to Netware 6.5
I am part of a large tree. Before starting upgrade of Netware 5.1 server
to Netware 6.5 I ran dsrepair and received no errors. During the Health
check of the upgrade I received two warnings. They are Warning extend
schema and repair schema. All the primary servers in the tree have
already been upgraded to Netware 6.5. The admin of the primary servers
control extend the schema. I am trying to find out if the warnings I
received is something they need to repair or is there something else I
need to do on my own server? I would appreciated any help I can get.
Michel...netware 5.0 server into netware 6 edirectory 8.7.1 tree
I posted this in the NETWARE 6 forum also, but posting it here may be more
relevant. I have a single school on a Netware 5.0 server and want to
merge them into a Netware 6.0 sp3 tree of 7 different servers and running
edirectory 8.7.1. From what I read on the site about mergin with
edirectory 8.7.1, both the target tree and the source tree must have the
same edirectory version. BUt edir 8.7.1 says you need 5.1 or later
netware server and I do not have that. Is there a way for me to merge the
netware 5.0 tree as source into the netware 6 tree without having to first

____________...edir 8.6.2 and NetWare 5.1 Support Packs
Several months ago, we upgraded out NetWare 5.1 servers to eDir 8.6.2
SP3. Now, as we move forward, assuming additional Support Packs are
released for NetWare 5.1 (we are at SP6), do we still apply the
Support Packs for NW 5.1, or do we just need to apply the Support
for eDir?...or do we still apply both types to our servers?

We have a tree of 20 servers all at NW 5.1, sp4 with edir 8.6.2 (sp3). We
are getting ready to begin upgrades of all the servers to NW 6.5 sp1.1. Each
server will have nw51sp6 applied just prior to the upgrade. The process will
take 10 - 12 weeks to upgrade all of the servers.
My question: Will we experience problems between servers still at NW 5.1
with edir 8.6.2 (sp3) and the new servers at NW 6.5 with edir 8.7.3? Will
they cooexist in a fairly stable manner until all upgrades are complete? We
prefer not to travel to all locations just to update edir....

We bought new hardware for our 2 new Netware 6.5 servers for cluster. Now we
've cluster on Netware 5.1 with shared disk system. I wonder what design of
upgrading is better. Is it better that i install Netware 5.1 on both new
servers and for begining make migration from NW5.1 to NW51 cluster (just
changing the hardware for servers) and the second step make inplace
migration to Netware 6.5?
Or is it better to install Netware 6.5 with latest support packs on both new
servers, prepare existing NDS tree for cluster migration, and make migration
