Netware 6.5 install into Netware 5.1 Tree
I was able to install my first Netware 6.5 server into my Netware 5.1
tree but I have a couple issues.
I already had 400 Edirectory Licenses installed so I didn't install any
Netware 6.5 Client licenses.
When I changed the login script to map to the new server no one accept
admins could map any drives. We were getting 8901 error codes.
Do I need to install client licenses to make this go away?
Also no replicas of the master Netware 5.1 server was installed on the
Netware 6.5 server, so how do I force the new server to hold a
read/write replica of the master.
Thanks ...Netware 5.1, Netware 5.1 SP6, Netware 5.1 SP8, Nici
I'm building a test network that is currently a mess. This network will be
used to test the migration of my 10 netware 5.1 Sp 6 servers to NW 6.5. I'm
putting two netware 5.1 servers and one MS 2003 server into the test
network. Testserver 1 is a 5.1 SP6 server with a master replica. When
installing Testserver 2 using the NW51SP6 overlay, the installation failed
with a css.nlm "waiting for xmgr" error. Consequently, I was going to create
a 5.1 server and then install the SP6 overlay or the SP6 depending on what
worked best. My NW51 original disks are scratched and...Netware 5.1 SP7 to Netware 6.5 SP1b
Did first in-place upgrade in Production yesterday.
1) Install seemed to hang at the very end. Closing installation files.
(We let it set for 20 minutes and then
closed diaglog box). Then was able to restart server. Server
was not hung.
2) Can not access iManager
Do I have to recreate CA for 6.5?
My test network which has different hardware works. I will compare results.
Any suggestions on what I can try next.
Was finally able to get iManager to work.

I am doing a fresh install of Netware 5.1 and am having a problem with
the install locking up when it tries to install IDEATA.HAM
It just sits on the Loading Driver... Please Wait screen.
I am installing on a 80gig hard drive with a 2 gig boot partition.
Has anyone experienced this before?
Your hardware might have an IDE controller that is incompatible iwth
IDEATA.HAM. I suggest you try to do your install using the latest
overlay CD available here:

We have to install a Netware 4.2 server in a Netware 5.1 SP6

Can we do this?
If so what patches and problems should we expect?
Yes, you can do this. Apply SP9 after installing 4.2, then the latest

We currently are running NW 5.1, NDS 8.85c.
Are there any ramifications installing a NW 6.5 server into our present
tree? I realize the upgrading NDS 8.85c to eDirectory would be the
recommendation, but for various reasons we are not going to upgrade DS.

Any advise? I put the right email this time. Thanks.

...Installing Netware 6.5 in a Netware 5.0 network
Currently have Netware 5.0 Servers sp4 and some sp5
We intend to install two new cluster servers running
the latest version so would like to install two 6.5
Netware Servers which includes a 2 node cluster.
Is it possible to install netware 6.5 into my existing

Also we currently are running a 2 node cluster on netware

We found that this version wouldnt support our subnet mask

Can the new version of cluster services support 255.255.240.0

No Direc...Installing Netware 6.5 Servers into a existing Netware 5 environment
We currently have a Netware 5 environment using sp4/sp5
We also have the original cluster services 1.01 running
under netware 5.
We intend to install a new SAN which will be clustered
using 2 new Netware 6.5 Servers.
What is the best approach to installing Netware 6.5
in our current environment, should I install the
new Netware 6.5 Servers into a new tree, but then how
will they communicate with the exisiting Netware 5 Servers.
Can I install the Netware 6.5 Server into the exisiting
5 environment and then in the future upgrade the current 5
Thankyou and best regards ...
