Performing a NetWare 5.1 NSS upgrade to NetWare 6.5 NSS
If I have a NetWare 5.1 NSS volume on a SAN and I disconnect that from
athe 5.1 server and present it to a NetWare 6.5 server, apart from
deleting the volume object in eDir and adding it back in with NSSMU, I
will also need to perform a NSS volume upgrade command NSS
The question I have is how long does the upgrade process take, given
that I wnat to do it with a 800GB NetWare 5.1 NSS volume? Or is it a
quick process that takes the same amount of time no matter how large the
It appears that in the past few days ...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...Netware 4.1 with Netware SAA 4.0 upgrade to Netware 5.1
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

...Netware 6.5 SP7 Upgrade and new install-DS version issue
Two days ago, I upgraded two Netware 6.5 Servers to SP7. Today I
installed a new third server with 6.5 SP7. When I run dsrepair and
check synchronization, I get the following
Server 1 DS Version 10553.73
Server 2 DS Version 10510.64
Server 3 DS Version 20216.51 (NEW)
Do I need to upgrade the Edirectory on the first two servers? If so,
what risk do I run, and how soon would I need to do that? Please

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 a...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?...Upgrading from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6
We are planning on upgrading from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.0. I do not
know which servers I should do first. We are planning on only
few servers at a time, is there anything that needs to be done to a
netware 5.1 server so it can communicate with a 6.0 server before it
upgraded? Here is our layout:
All servers are currently running Netware 5.1 SP5/ NDS 8.82
FCC1 - File and print - Master replica
FCC7 GRoupwise 6 SP2
FCC8 Groupwise 6 webaccess
