Yes. Run the deployment manager from the 6.5 SP2 overlay CD to prepare the
tree. Then install edir8733.exe on the 6.5 server afterwards.

...Adding a new Netware 6.5 server into a 5.1 tree w/edir
We currently have 8 netware 5.1/sp8 w/edir 18.104.22.168.3 smp. Is it ok to add
a 6.5/sp5 server to this tree or do we need to upgrade the existing
5.1/sp8 servers first?

If this is 126.96.36.199 you are OK. If it is 188.8.131.52 you need to update it
first, I suggest edir8739 just released.

We currently have a Netware 5 environment using sp4/sp5
We also have the original cluster services 1.01 running

will they communicate with the exisiting Netware 5 Servers.

We are considering installing a NetWare 6.5 server into one of our remote
sites. All of our other servers are currently 5.1. I know it is not an
issue to put the 6.5 server into our environment, but NetWare Customer
Service told me that it is suggested that the master replica be put onto
the 6.5 server. We don't want to do that since this is a remote site, and
we really don't want to upgrade our existing master replica server at this
time. Would we be able to "get away with" installing just a partition
replica onto the 6.5 server and maintain the Master Repl...Concurrent perl 5.6.0, 5.6.1, 5.8.0, and 5.8.0threaded
So, I'd like to have multiple versions of perl installed on my system,
for testing stuff, poking around, etc. It's not really that difficult,
actually - you just arrange that they have different @INC directories
(or that they overlap in the ways you want them to), and you make
/usr/bin/perl point as a symlink to whichever version you want to use
regularly (probably 5.6.1).
Here's what I think I'd have, creating a few fink packages to manage
things for me:

Can be done. I recommend the following as minimums:

2 - eDir upgraded to 8.7.3.x
3 - Use the NW65sp4a overlay CDs at a minimum
4 - run NWDeploy from the NW65OS CD to prepare the tree for the first
