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
with upgrade wizard on both ser...groupwise 5.5 on Netware 5.1 upgrading to Netware 6.5

You should look into Migration Wizard to ease this process.

Currently on NW5.1 with a few servers at main and remote offices. Want
(need) to upgrade to newer NOS, so my logical choice would be OES with the
Netware option (and so that I can start playing with the Linux option).
On the training side I'd appreciate a few pointers. I currently have a
NW5.1 CNA and several years experience. I'd like to get the necessary
training to be able to upgrade and administer Netware 6.5, hopefully with
some exposure to the Linux flavor on the side to get me started. Preferably
a certfication would help but not mandatory. In the old days I&...Upgrade Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
I have Netware 5.1 SP7 & eDirectory 8.7.03 with 4 servers. I would like to
upgrade all servers to Netware 6.5 but only 3 can be upgraded at the same
time as 1 server is in a remote office.
Should I upgrade the master server in the root partition first? Also, will
the upgrade change the eDirectory version? Should I upgrade to eDirectory
220.127.116.11 immediately after the Netware 6.5 upgrade?
From the eDirectory point of view, your servers are already up to date.
So an upgrade to NW 6.5 will not upgrade your eDirectory and as such

I have a netware 5.0 (no sp) with ds 7.45 on a Compaq Proliant 3000.
This server is alone on my tree.
I want migrate this server to Netware 6.5 to a Compaq dl 380 G2.
What is the best method ?
Thanks for answer
You will need to deploy updates on the 5.0 server prior to running the
Migration Wizard. No SP's at all on the 5.0 server? That is rare indeed.
Also, how many users on this server and how much data?

You can install the NW6.5 server as a Pre-Migration server, there will be no
other application installed on the server, use MW7.1. In order to do this
make sure all you other servers have eDir8.7.3 install and update the SP to
the latest available for NW5.1. Get a copy of the tru...
