Upgrade from NetWare 5.1 SP8 to NetWare 6.5 SP5
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:
Windows: SNMP Object Creation Error
Contents: An error was encountered while creating the eDirectory SNMP
objects. The error returned was -625. Please see the readme
for instructions on how to perform this task manually.
Couldn't find a suitable readme but I have found a documentation how to

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
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
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

I just did this last week and had no problems. One key thing to note is =
that you should not upgrade your version 5.5 GWIA until AFTER all of your =
MTA's & POA's are upgraded. The v6.5 MTA/POA will work with the older =
GWIA, but the older POA/MTA will not work with the new GWIA.
...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:
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&...Upgrading from Netware 5.1 to netware 6.5
I plan to migrate my 4 Netware 5.1 servers to netware 6.5.
What action do I have to do first?Upgrade DS version, latest patchs...
My configuration is :
- Netware 5.1 SP5
- DHCP is running
- NDPS Broker, Manager
- DS version 10330.03
- ZfD 3.2
- DirXml 1.1 + passwordSync
I also plan to migrate to NIM 2.0 (or IDM, I don't know how to call that!)
and ZEN 4
What is the best method?Any feedback experience on projects like this
would really be appreciate!
Email is also acceptable!

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

If so why?

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
18.104.22.168 immediately after the Netware 6.5 upgrade?
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

We have a Novell server 6.5 (sp3) with Arcserve 11.1 with an Exabyte VXA-2
In the beginning (2 months ago) the backups where no problem , but now the
backup jobs are failing.
In the Arcserve job log we see two errors.

If we look at the log of Arcserve Tape server, we see

I've looked at CA KB but cannot find a solution.
See reply in other thread.
...Arcserve 11.1 on NetWare 6.5/SP3
I get the following error messages: "failed to open catalog file

No detail information is merged.
Another problem is: "server specific information error" fffdffdc,fffdffdc.
Thank You for any ideas.
CA support has an unreleased patch that should resolve this error.
The patch number is T453007.

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!
