NetWare 6.5 SP3 Upgrades Issues - stuck at "Closing Installation Files"

This seems to be an issue that has not been addressed by Novell!
During the upgrade of a server the GUI will hang at "Closing
Installation Files".  This results is NRM, & iManager not functioning
even though the server is upgraded to 6.5.

Looks like Novell has skirted around this issue.  Obviously if you read
the forums this is happening frequently.  This has happened to about 7
out of the 10 servers that I have upgraded thus far.

Just exactly when is this going to looked into.  Are you passing it on
to Novell to inform them that this is happening?  I currenlty have an
incident open with them and we will see what they have to say.

I have only seen this once, when I told the server not to reboot and 
just closed the GUI.  I ended up typing RESET SERVER and it closed the 
GUI and rebooted and life was good - now I just say yes when it wants 
to reboot the server after an upgrade (which you should be doing 
anyway).

Can you point me to these other msgs?  Are you allowing the server to 
reboot after the upgrade?

Try adjusting the frame rate / monitor to 640 X 480 and I bet it will run.
