upgrade Netware 6 SP5 to Netware 6.5 SP5
We want to update a Netware 6 server to Netware 6.5 SP5.
The server is running:
Named $ DHCP 1.2.0
Master server (ROOT-replica)
Are there any special steps to take, for updating the Eguide and the NDPS
services, or is this migrated by the upgrade process automatically?
> for updating the Eguide and the NDPS
NDPS will get the new NLM's - don't know about eGuide. Make sure you
put the NetWare 6.5 OS CD in a workstation and run the deployment
manager before doing the upg...netware 6.0 sp5 to netware 6.5 sp5 upgrade
how can i easily upgrade a netware 6.0 sp5 server to netware 6.5 sp5?

Well you got a few options here.
You can do a in-place upgrade if you have direct access to the server.
If you don't have direct access you can do a across the wire upgrade.
If you want to replace your old hardware you can use the migration
where can i get the migration wizard?

The Migration Wizard v. 8

this for you.

Sorry, no replies to e-mail respon...Upgrade Netware cluster from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
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

I would like to upgrade a Netware 6.0 sp3 3-node cluster to Netware 6.5
sp5. All documentation I've read says to do an in-place upgrade on each
node to accomplish this. When I try an in-place upgrade of a test
standalone 6.0 server it is very messy. What I would like to do instead
is remove 1 node from the cluster (TID 10060341), rebuild it from scratch
as a 6.5 server and add it back to the cluster. Repeat the process for
the remaining 2 nodes.
Should this work? I like the idea of having a clean install of the OS.
Yes, that should work.

Nov...Upgrade from Netware 6.0 to Netware 6.5
I am going to upgrade from 6.0 to 6.5. I have link to go to download a
21KB zip file. Is that all that I need to do the upgrade or is there
something else that I have to get? Do I just burn these files to a CD
and run it, to perform the upgrade? Any help would be good. Thanks
Ah -- no -- it is quite a bit more complicated than that.
1) Do you have a license for 6.5?
2) What service pack do you have installed on the 6.0 server?
3) Is the intent to do this as an in place upgrade?

I have three Netware 6 servers and 300 NW6 user licences. I bought 300 NW6.5

proceed with client upgrade licences to insure that users can communicate
with all servers?

We have plans to upgrade from NetWare 5.1 (Edir 8.6.2 SP3) to NetWare
6.5 later this year. We have to consider the NFS 3.0 replacement to
Native File Access on one server, and then comes my next question.
Should we/must we upgrade our Edirectory from 8.6.2 to 8.7.x prior to
upgrade? And what is the current recommended Edirectory 8.7.x SP?
version we should upgrade to?
The first task is to install NW51SP7 and verify to have the same level of
NICI (56/128 bits) and eDir on all servers.

we have one single NetWare 5.1 SP8 server upgraded to NetWare 6.5 SP5 but
one error was shown during this procedure.
The following box appeared telling us:
Windows: SNMP Object Creation Error
Contents: An error was encountered while creating the eDirectory SNMP
objects. The error returned was -625. Please see the readme
for instructions on how to perform this task manually.
Couldn't find a suitable readme but I have found a documentation how to
create the SNMP group object under NetWare.

Good day !
There is a little problem .
We have fully functional tree Netware 6.0SP5 on a four servers (it works

neither patches released after SP5 not installed - pure SP5 only.

some tasks, and we found that NW 6.0 NOT APPLICABLE for this type PE.Well,
we have licensed 6.5 and we thought about tree upgrade, but it was
planned as "not-in-this-month" task. And now I think ,that acceptable
decision for us will - to instal...Inplace Rolling upgrade from NetWare 6 SP4 with Clustering 1.6 to NetWare 6.5 SP2

Would you please provide upgrade path advice?
We currently have GroupWise 6 SP4 running on NW6.5 SP2. We want to patch
all the NetWare server with SP5 and a week later upgrade GroupWise 6 to 7.
We noticed that NW6.5 SP5 upgrades all of your NetWare 6.5 components to
OES NetWare and I don�t know if GroupWise 6 and all of its agents will
work in OES NetWare. Should we upgrade GroupWise first to 7 and then apply
NetWare SP5 a few weeks later to be safe?
You input is appreciated.

I am in the process of upgrading a Netware 5 server to a Netware 6.5 server
and have a few questions:
1. I would like to run both the Netware 5 and Netware 6.5 server at the same
time on the same network. (Is there a migration tool that will transfer the
data only, having different file server names?)
2. By doing the above, and having the NDS replicate to the new Netware 6.5
server, does this cause any problems? (Eventually the Netware 5.0 server
will be taken offline)
3. Is there any pdf file or technical docs on upgrading from Netware 5 to
Netware 6.5 and what the issues might be?...upgrade Netware 6.0 vers netware 6.5 SP8
