Netware 5.1 (nds 8.51) to Netware 6.5 edirectory
I am planning to upgrade novell netware 5.1 with sp6 and nds 8.51 (not
to Netware 6.5. I have 20 servers all with the same version/level. What
are the best way to achieve this? I am having few concerns about the nds
version and do we need to update the nds first or directly upgrade to
netware 6.5 as it is now?

...Netware 6.5 SP8 EDir 18.104.22.168 & OES2
Hi, I have a network of NW6.5 SP8 servers running EDir 22.214.171.124. I
introduced my first OES 2 Linux server (All Patched - EDir 126.96.36.199). I
want to add this as a R/W replica. Can I add it as a replica like I
would with NW? I.E. Console One - TREE - Partition & Replica View - Add
Thanks for any advice you can give.

Yes... eDir is eDir is eDir regardless of the platform/architecture.

I don't know if this is by design or we have missed something.
We have an eDirectory tree running servers from NetWare 5.1 to 6.5.
The tree started it's live from NetWare 4.1. :-)
The master of the [Root] is running NetWare 6.5 eDirectory 8.7. When
we installed SP7 into it, eDirectory was updated to 188.8.131.52, NDS
Version 10553.73. Everythings is fine.
However, we installed a new NetWare 6.5 server using the SP7 Overlay
CDs into a child partition, we were surprised that the new server was
installed with eDirectory 8.8 (NDS Version 20216.51). The server is

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
upgrade...eDir Netware 6.5 sp6 184.108.40.206 to 8.8.5 ??
I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 220.127.116.11 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...NetWare 6.5 SP8 co-exist with NetWare 6.5 SP7 servers?
I really don't want to install SP8 on the NetWare server as I am working
on moving Netware to OES Linux. However, I need to upgrade to GroupWise
8 soon so plan to upgrade to GroupWise 8 on NetWare server which
All other 10 NetWare servers are on version 6.5 SP7 and I only intend
to upgrade one server to NetWare 6.5 SP8. Does anyone see issue with
that? I assume eDirectory does not chance with the installation of SP8.
I am running eDirectory v 18.104.22.168.

We want to install a new Netware 6.5 server in an environment that has two
6.0 servers and 2 Netware 5.0 servers on the same tree. We are running
8.6.2 e directory on the 6.0 boxes and 8.0.6 NDS on the 5.0 boxes. Are
there any problems with this setup,or should we be installing 6.0 instead?
Thanks in advance.

I need to install two new Netware 6.5 Servers into
my current Netware 5.0 network with Service packs 4/5.
What updates do I need to apply to the Netware 5.0 Servers
and do I download the nw65sp1b overlay file only and use
that to run deployment manager, or do I have to install
sp1 first. Also can you purchase nw65 licenses seperately
Thanking you in advance for help given.
As a minimum the 5.0 servers need nw50sp6a, os5pt2a.exe, wsock4f.exe,
flsysft3.exe, ts524o.exe, and Set client file caching enabled=Off. The DS

I have 5 NetWare 6.5 servers that hold a replica:

SERVER2 eDir Ver 126.96.36.199 (NW 6.5 SP6)

SERVER5 eDir Ver 220.127.116.11 (NW 6.5 SP3)
I have another 9 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers that have no replica with DS.NLM

I want to enable a RW Replica on one of these newer servers such that I'll
have a replica running eDir 8.8.
Any issues with adding a replica to one of these NW6.5 SP8 servers and then
making it the Master?
