eDir Netware 6.5 sp6 126.96.36.199 to 8.8.5 ??
I have several Netware 6.5 sp6 188.8.131.52 servers. When I do a version at
the Console the result is Novell Open Enterprise Server Netware 6.5.
I'll assume this is OES1 as we have not upgraded the Netware servers to
The eDir 8.8.5 documentation lists the prerequistes as OES2 and OES2sp1
as well as Netware 6.5 sp7 or higher.
Do I have to upgrade these servers to OES2 before I can upgrade to eDir
I would like to first patch these servers to sp8 and then upgrade
eDirectory to 8.8.5. Will this be OK?
All the documentation I come across specifies OES2 only and no...NetWare 6.5 SP8a server with eDir 8.8 SP4 receiving 1st RW Replica in 8.7.x Tree
I have 5 NetWare 6.5 servers that hold a replica:
SERVER1 eDir Ver 184.108.40.206 (NW 6.5 SP6) (Master)
SERVER2 eDir Ver 220.127.116.11 (NW 6.5 SP6)
SERVER3 eDir Ver 18.104.22.168 (NW 6.5 SP6)
SERVER4 eDir Ver 22.214.171.124 (NW 6.5 SP5)
SERVER5 eDir Ver 126.96.36.199 (NW 6.5 SP3)
I have another 9 NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers that have no replica with DS.NLM
Ver 8.8 SP4.
I want to enable a RW Replica on one of these newer servers such that I'll
have a replica running eDir 8.8.
Any issues with adding a replica to one of these NW6.5 SP8 servers and then
making it the Master?
...6.5 SP5 edir 8.8 migration to new server
I have an older server that was update this summer with netware 6.5 SP5
edir 8.8. I recently got a new server that I want to migrate that to.
When I start the process Migration Wizard is telling me that edir 8.8 is
not support on the source server. I downloaded Migration Wizard
8.1.512.9. Any ideas on that migration setup? Thanks.

I have a netware 6.5 sp8 server which is running edirectory 8.8.4. I'm
getting an error when I try to upgrade to edirectory 8.8.5. I'm using
nwconfig and Installing the product by pointing to the nds8.ips file in
the extracted folder. It goes through the file copy but then it goes
back to the nwconfig screen. It never asks me for the admin
When I check the logger screen I see:

If I run dscheck.nlm manually, it runs successfully, however it fails
when doing the upgrade.
...eDir 8.8 SP5 on NetWare DOWNs server?
Greetings, this is now 3 different servers on 2 different trees, all NW65SP8
running 8.8 SP4 FTF1, that when I applied eDir 8.8 SP5 to them, after the
first phase, instead of restarting the server, it does a DOWN? I had 2
servers power off and 1 went to the C:\NWSERVER prompt. Good thing I wasn't
doing this remotely...
Why would the process DOWN the server instead of doing a RESTART or RESET?
Note that after starting up the server again, the installation process
continued to successful completion.

Have a 4 NetWare server environment: 2 NetWare 6.0 SP3 running eDir 8.6.2
and 2 NetWare 5.1 SP7 on NDS 85.30.
Have TID 10072620 that I'm following. Have verified the versions of
Certificate Server, NICI and Java meet the minimum requirements.
Questions is steps 4b, 4c, and 4d under SCHEMA Preparation and Verification.
Since I'm already running eDir 8.6.2 in the environment, the Schema should
already have been extended. I don't need to perform these steps do I? If I
do will I mess something up with the current directory DB? Can I just move
to step 5?

A tree has three servers, all updated from NW6.5.6 to NW6.5.7 and now another
server had to be installed into that tree.
We used NW6.5.7 overlay CDs (OS + Products), and this server is eDir 8.8 sp2
while those NW6.5SP7 was applied to are eDir 184.108.40.206
In http://www.novell.com/download/ I was looking for 8.8 update, but just find
iManager plugins and patches for 8.8
During applying SP7 I didn't see any option to apply eDir 8.8, what did I miss?
installing just sp7(not the overlay) does not install or patch edir88 at

I have performed an edir upgrade to 8.8.3 on a Netware 6.5 SP6 Servers
in a large tree, where 8.7.3 was there previously. There was no errors
during the install itself including during the health check. After doing
the install however, I am confronted with many edirectory
inconsistencies. (even on master replica). Eg many user objects have
group memberships which were not there previously, and if checking the
corresponding group object and its membership the user is not there ?. I
have run many dsrepairs (no errors) and timesync is all in check. I did
many backups before I performed...DSCheck errors -5879 with Netware 6.5 SP8 / EDir 8.8 SP5

is there a problem if i do an update to only the master eDir 18.104.22.168

i cant bring the server down, if the servers is down, the nested group
did not work too?
i there anybody who can explain it to me?

Hope someone can give me an answer. I am looking to install my first 6.5
server into a tree that has 5.1 servers all on Edir 8.73. My questions
1) Do I need to bother with Deployment Manager if so then...
2) Backup Data ? I have no server yet - so I assume I skip this step
3) Do I have to run the CA stuff and Universal password and CIFS prep if
this is a new server into an existing tree not an upgrade?
Sorry for the confusion - I appreciate any assistance...
Given your existing servers are already on eDirectory 8.7.3, your install
should be a piece of cake...
