NetWare 4.11, NetWare for SAA, NetWare 6.5
we have 5 netware 4.11 servers. 2 are in the main office and 3 are in
external offices, connected via vpn (DSL). The 2 servers in the main
office are in tree1, the other 3 servers have there own 3 trees.
One of the servers in the main office runs nw4saa and hostprint and we
have to keep this running approx. 8-10 months. But we want to install
new netware 6.5 servers (2 in the main office and 3 in the 3 external
My plan is to install 1 server in the main office with ip and ipx
installed (no scmd) to keep contact with the nw4saa server. The second

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

I would like to know what is the correct procedure to upgrade a
4.1 with Netware for SAA 4.0 server to Netware 5.1.
This is the last server we have to upgrade, all the other are already
Can I just proceed with a inplace upgrade?
Do I have to change anything in Netware for SAA?
What kind of service pack should I use on Netware 5.1?
After upgrade do I need saa40020.exe for netware 5.1?
Just a few questions to make sure I'am on the right track.
Thanks in advance

You can run them but not sure without issues since some of those clients
were not tested against NetWare6.5

I was reading on the migration pdf file about migrating from Netware 5 to
Netware 6.5 and one section states that the minimum requirement is Netware
5.0 and another section states Netware 5.1 with service pack 6.
Along with different NDS versions and edir versions being supported.
This migation would be an across the wire migration to new hardware.
Any concrete minimum requirements would be great to have before an upgrade

...Netware 5 to Netware 6.5 upgrade
I am in the process of upgrading a Netware 5 server to a Netware 6.5 server
and have a few questions:
1. I would like to run both the Netware 5 and Netware 6.5 server at the same
time on the same network. (Is there a migration tool that will transfer the
data only, having different file server names?)
2. By doing the above, and having the NDS replicate to the new Netware 6.5
server, does this cause any problems? (Eventually the Netware 5.0 server
will be taken offline)
3. Is there any pdf file or technical docs on upgrading from Netware 5 to
Netware 6.5 and what the issues might be?...groupwise 5.5 on Netware 5.1 upgrading to Netware 6.5

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.

Can a Netware 4.11 server co-exist with a Netware 6.5 server, as there are
two Netware 4.11 servers and each server will get migrated over to new
hardware over two weekends.

Yes, but they must be at DS621. And run the deployment wizard ones.

...Netware 5.0 to Netware 6.5 migration
My corporation recently acquired a company with a single Netware 5.0
server. We have already installed a new Netware 6.5 server at their
location that is part of our global eDirectory tree. Their old NW 5.0
server is on its own indepentent tree. What is the best method to migrate
their users, groups, data, trustees, and printers to our global tree. We
have already created a container for them in our global tree. I looked at
the SCMT tool from Novell but I think it is designed to migrate/upgrade
servers that are in the same tree. Any suggestions besides a manual

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&...
