I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 22.214.171.124 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
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
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...DSCheck errors -5879 with Netware 6.5 SP8 / EDir 8.8 SP5

In http://www.novell.com/download/ I was looking for 8.8 update, but just find

I want to install a new server to run GroupWise 6.5 webmail, and to take
advantage of the integrated Apache/Tomcat features I'd like to install it
with Netware 6.5. This server is just going to run webservices and

cert server are on NetWare 5.1 sp6 edir 8.7.3.
Other than upgrading all the servers to edir 8.7.3 & nici 2.4 (which we've
already done), is there anything else that needs to be done? I've seen
references to upgrading the master replica to 6.5, but is this necessary in

...eDir 8.8 SP5 on NetWare DOWNs server?
Greetings, this is now 3 different servers on 2 different trees, all NW65SP8
running 8.8 SP4 FTF1, that when I applied eDir 8.8 SP5 to them, after the
first phase, instead of restarting the server, it does a DOWN? I had 2
servers power off and 1 went to the C:\NWSERVER prompt. Good thing I wasn't
doing this remotely...
Why would the process DOWN the server instead of doing a RESTART or RESET?
Note that after starting up the server again, the installation process
continued to successful completion.

Is eDir 8.8 on Netware 6.0 SP5 possible. All our servers are 873 shipping
and we were going to go to 873 SP9 but thought we might as well go to 8.8
SP2 but it says Netware 6.5. Or is that simply because 6.0 is no longer

we have NW658 , with 7 servers. one master, six read write in the tree.
is there a problem if i do an update to only the master eDir 220.127.116.11
to edir 8.8 sp5 and the other servers must wait for updating, and still
have edir 18.104.22.168 ?
because we want to use nested groups.
must the master rep always online so that nested groups are working, so
i cant bring the server down, if the servers is down, the nested group
did not work too?
i there anybody who can explain it to me?
or must i have two servers with edir 8.8 sp5 in the tree for
redundance, so if one server is down...
