Upgrade Netware 5.0 to Netware 6.5
Can one tell me how to upgrade a Netware 5.0 Single Server to a Netware
6.5 Singele Server where the Netware 6.5 Server will be on a new Machine.

You should look into Migration Wizard to ease this process.

I have a netware 5.0 (no sp) with ds 7.45 on a Compaq Proliant 3000.

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?

Or do I have to upgrade from 5.0 to 5.1 then to 6.5? If doing this, will the
5.0 license work for 5.1? As it will be impossible to upgrade all servers

We bought new hardware for our 2 new Netware 6.5 servers for cluster. Now we

changing the hardware for servers) and the second step make inplace

Is it possible to do an inplace upgrade from NetWare 5.0 SP6a with NDS

Thank you in advance for your help.
I would not advise it.

No. Upgrading from 5.0 to 6.5 on the same machine is not supported. The
installation program will simply refuse the upgrade. If you want to do
an in place upgrade to from 5.0 to 6.5, you have to upgrade to 5.1 or
6.0 first and then upgrade to 6.5.

We intend to install two new cluster servers running

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

We would like to upgrade our Netware 5.0 server to Netware 6.5, and I
looking for a plan of attack. Attempts thus far have failed:
We have 5.0 on a 38G drive partitioned into several volumes, with
38G partitioned into a couple of volumes available for other data, and
unused 8G drive. Everything is backed up to tape. We use the

If I boot the 6.5CD from DOS, it will let me install a new 6.5 server.
Not what I want.
