Install Netware 6.5 SP5 Server in the Netware 6.0 SP5 Tree
Good day !
There is a little problem .
We have fully functional tree Netware 6.0SP5 on a four servers (it works
VERY FINE through 3 years).All servers are Dell PE2600. None of postfixes
neither patches released after SP5 not installed - pure SP5 only.
One weeks ago we've got a new server - Dell PE 1950 8))) specially for
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...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?

NDPS will get the new NLM's - don't know about eGuide. Make sure you

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.

We've got a Netware 5.0 server running Groupwise 6.0 and we would like

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?

> Ah -- ...NetWare 5.1 SP5 to NetWare 6.5 upgrade questions
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:

Contents: An error was encountered while creating the eDirectory SNMP

for instructions on how to perform this task manually.
Couldn't find a suitable readme but I have found a documentation how to

I am currently running 16 servers running the gamut from NetWare 6.0 SP2
to Netware 6.0 SP5. I also run a migration agent. I am trying to decide
if I should upgrade my servers to NetWare 6.5 SP2 or run the service pack
to 6.0 SP5. I also run Zenworks 4.01 IR4, NetStorage, and GroupWise 6.5
SP2. I ran the upgrade from 6.0 to 6.5 on a test server without problems
with a test file and printer server. Will I run into any problems
upgrading the Zen, NetStorage or GW servers to NetWare 6.5? Is there any
particular order that I should upgrade the servers such as upgrade the

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.

Is it preferable to upgrade my master replica and SLP server first
upgrading my other servers or does it not really matter?
The reason I'm asking is my 6.0 SP5 master replica server doesn't have
enough disk space on the sys volume to upgrade. It is an older server
that needs to go but the guy before me set it up with a 2GB sys volume
there is less than 500MB space left. The healthcheck fails.=20
