ARCserve 11.1 SP3 with Netware 6.5 SP8

I noticed CA's web site does not list ARCserve 11.1 SP3 as being
supported on Netware 6.5 SP8.  I know we have sites that are working
fine with Dell servers and PowerVault 122T.  However, that is not the
case with the PowerVault 124T.  

Without official support from CA, is there a way to make these backups
more stable?  I can't reschedule backup jobs through the Windows Manager
without causing ABENDS on UNIQSVR.NLM.  Every few weeks I have a backup
failure because the software and changer stop communicating.  At that
point I have to stop ARCserve then unplug and plug in the SCSI cable
then start ARCserve again just to restore normal functionality.

Hope to hear some good news from people that have successfully used
this combination.

Hi Robert,

Although Service pack 8 has not been officially tested, we have been
using it in house for some time and have not had any problems related to
the service pack.  

After looking at the Certified device list, I see that the Powervault
124T is certified with ARCserve 11.1 for NetWare.  Are you experiencing
the abends on all your servers running with Powervault 124T's or only
one of them?  

In terms of the times of the abend, do they only occur after the
communications breakdown between ARCserve and the hardware occurs or is
it any time you use the manager?  If it is only when the communication
problem occurs, it's probably related, if it happens at any time, then
it's probably 2 separate problems.

To start troubleshooting you would need to post the abend.log (if the
log is long, only post the most recent Abend 1) and the tape$svr.log so
we can see if you getting the communications problems logged.  Also, a
current config.txt file can't hurt.

A server abends is not something that is easy to troubleshoot in a
forum post, have you considered contacting CA Technologies support for

Netware 5.1, Netware 5.1 SP6, Netware 5.1 SP8, Nici
I'm building a test network that is currently a mess. This network will be used to test the migration of my 10 netware 5.1 Sp 6 servers to NW 6.5. I'm putting two netware 5.1 servers and one MS 2003 server into the test network. Testserver 1 is a 5.1 SP6 server with a master replica. When installing Testserver 2 using the NW51SP6 overlay, the installation failed with a css.nlm "waiting for xmgr" error. Consequently, I was going to create a 5.1 server and then install the SP6 overlay or the SP6 depending on what worked best. My NW51 original disks are scratched and...

Upgrade Netware cluster from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
Hello! 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...

Arcserve 11.1 SP3 Netware 5.1 SP8
Hi Guys, I've seen a couple of other threads on this subject but neither seem to provide a solution. Now I have the same problem so if anyone can help I would appreciate it. I have been running Arcserve 5.1 on this server with Arcserve for a while with no problems. We had to increase our backup size and so installed an exabyte VXA-2 Tape Drive. This gave intermittent tape format errors E1014, in the Tape Log it gave E6076, E6092 and E6958 Communication Failure on SCSI Loop. Re-installed the previous Tandberg SL6 and had no problems. So Blamed the Tape Unit and had the S...

Netware 6.5 SP3 & Arcserve 11.1 SP3 problem
I'm running into a weird problem just after I upgraded my Arcserve install to SP3 (Arcserve 11.1 For Netware SP3). The backup works fine but the file names come out looking weird. For example: Volume Name=DATA Folder Name @ root of DATA=RESTRICTED When viewing the backup session (for example, doing a restore by session within Arcserve), I get the following file name instead *RESTRI~1*. Any file name over 8 characters is truncated with a tilde symbol. Yes, I do have all the appropriate name spaces enabled in Netware. The problem did *not* happen with SP2, but I was forced to ...

Upgrade to Netware 6.5 from Netware 5.1
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&...

Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5 upgrade.
I have 3 Netware 5.1 servers, sp7, and directory and want to upgrade them to Netware 6.5. I will upgrade one server, then the others will be upgraded in a couple of months. Is it best to upgrade my master replica first so my replica in a mixed environment is a 6.5 server? Or at least make my master replica server whatever server I upgrade to 6.5? If so why?

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 immediately after the Netware 6.5 upgrade? Please help. Thanks Che 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 will not create comp...

Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5 upgrade
I currently have 2 netware 5.1 servers and want to upgrade to netware 6.5. The Netware 5.1 servers are running NDS 7.47. Should I upgrade to edir on the netware 5.1 servers before the migration, if so what are the steps, as I read the update on the netware 5.1 download section that said that the edir update cannot be applied to a 5.1 server running NDS 7.x or can I use NDS 7.47 on the 5.1 server during the migration process? Thanks John, It appears that in the past few days you have not received a response to your posting. That concerns us, and has triggered this automated...

NetWare 5.1 SP3 server no longer able to ping NetWare 5.1 SP8 server
I'm hoping someone can help me rather quickly. We upgraded on our master NetWare 5.1 server from SP3 to SP8 on Thursday morning. Unfortunately, one of our other NetWare 5.1 SP3 servers just stopped time syncing with it on Saturday. We desperately need to get it talking again because of Groupwise, etc. I was wondering if upgrading it to SP8 would resolve the problem. Unfortunately, our time sync isn't working, and I'm afraid of trying SP8. Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! On Tue, 19 Jul 2005 16:03:22 GMT, wrote: >I'm hoping so...
