Netware 5.0+Groupwise 6.0 -->> Netware 6.0+Groupwise 6.5
We've got a Netware 5.0 server running Groupwise 6.0 and we would like
upgrade it to Netware 6.0 with Groupwise 6.5. What's the safest way of
doing this? We've got a spare server where we can dump things
Should we upgrade Groupwise first or Netware?

Personally, I'd upgrade Netware first, make sure GW works in it's
current config and then upgrade GW....Upgrade from Netware 6.0 to Netware 6.5
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?

Hi, Does anyone know of any preresequites or concerns of adding new
NetWare 6.5 servers into a tree which only contains two NetWare 6.0
servers? The NetWare 6.5 servers will be clustered.

Well you got a few options here.
You can do a in-place upgrade if you have direct access to the server.
If you don't have direct access you can do a across the wire upgrade.
If you want to replace your old hardware you can use the migration
where can i get the migration wizard?

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.
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?

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

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?

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.

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 intend to install two new cluster servers running
the latest version so would like to install two 6.5
Netware Servers which includes a 2 node cluster.
Is it possible to install netware 6.5 into my existing
Netware 5.0 network.
Also we currently are running a 2 node cluster on netware
5 running the first ver of cluster servers 1.0.
We found that this version wouldnt support our subnet mask
of 255.255.240.0 but only the default one 255.255.255.0.
Can the new version of cluster services support 255.255.240.0
