Upgrade of eDir 8.6.2 to 8.7.3 / 8.8

I have a couple of NW6 servers running eDir 8.6.2 - I'd like to update
them to 8.7.3 to take advantage of all the features of iManager 2.5

1. Is this a free upgrade or am I required to purchase 8.7.3 ?
2. Is 8.8 a better upgrade option ?

On Netware yes.

No. 8.8 is a complete brand new *Version* with tons of functional
changes that make it incompatible right now with lots of stuff. 
It shouldn't be considered a regular "upgrade". Apply 8.73 and then the
8.7.3.7 patch.

upgrade edir 8.7.3 to 8.8.2 or 8.8.3?
Our tree: Netware 6.5SP7 and OES2/Linux, edir 8.7.3.10b ftf1 and edir 8.8.SP2 ftf2 I started to install new servers with edir 8.8 some month ago, some of the edir 8.7.3 servers will be switched of before long. Now I want to upgrade the remaining 8.7.3 servers to 8.8. It seemed clear to me that I wouldn't install 8.8.2 if 8.8.3 is out. But after reading the postings here, I am quite unsure... My questions: Isn't it dangerous to stay at 8.8.2? Some of the fixed problems are overflows - these might be security relevant? I saw two problems with 8.8.3 here: the ldap probl...

Can eDir 8.6.2 SP1 be upgraded to eDir 8.7.3
We have eDirectory 8.6.2 SP1 and we want to upgrade to eDir 8.7.3. Can we install 8.7.3 directory on top of eDirectory 8.6.2 SP1 or do we absolutely have to upgrade to latest service pack (8.6.2 SP6), before moving to 8.7.3?

Upgrade eDir 8.6.2 to 8.7.3
My question: I'm about to upgrade my two NW6SP4 servers from eDir 8.6.2 to eDir 8.7.3. and now when the newer service pack is out I'm not sure should I first install this NW6SP5 and only after that upgrade the eDir version or is there any difference in which order those actions are done?

eDir 8.6.2 upgrade to 8.7.3
I had a problem upgrading my Master Cert. and Replica server to eDir 873. My server kept crashing at the point where the eDir 873 install was trying to updated the Products.DAT file and before the GUI install started. I checked the eDIR version of DS and DSREPAIR and they are correct. I even ran DSRepair and everything reported OK. I was able to upgrade three other servers with no problems. However, when I ran DSRepair - Rep. Sync the next day, two servers showed -776 and -663 errors. I ran PKIDiag on those servers and new certificates were created. Looked in all my OUs ...

Upgrade eDir 8.6.2 SP6 to eDir 8.7.3
In reading the Text file on the CD, it states that we might want to manually extend the schema. The instructions aren't quite clear but this is what I think it says: 1. Copy the DSI.NLM and DSISCH.NLM files from the "NW\SYS\SYSTEM" directory to the server. (I assume this means to the SYS\SYSTEM directory on the server.) 2. Copy the desired schema files from the CD to a temp directory on the server. 3. Use NWCONFIG - Directory Services option to update the schema. (I assume that we would direct the process to the "TEMP" directory created in ste...

eMbox and eDir 8.7.3 to 8.8 upgrade
Two questions: All six servers are Netware 6.5 SP6 with eDir 8.7.3.9. I am preparing a migration (physical, identity) to OES 2 SP1 Linux. One of the servers in my tree does not have a SYS:/SYSTEM/embox folder or embox.nlm. It would appear that this was somehow not installed with the last migration or update. How do I install it, or what do I reinstall to resolve this? I want to merge a partition into the root. Second: I will need to install SP7 or SP8, and then install eDirectory 8.8, I am contemplating going with 8.8.5... Do I need to spend the weekend updating eDir on all six...

Upgrading eDir 8.7.3.10 to 8.8.4 on NW 6.5
Hello we are following TID 7002926 Upgrading eDir 8.7.3.10 to 8.8.4 on NW 6.5 regarding this procedure the first issue I am having is that I cannot seem to find eDirectory 8.8.3 on the Novell Download sight. I have seen that 8.8.5 is the version currently available, should we just be planning on upgrading to that, and ignoring the information we have in the TID? The final line in the TID "To upgrade eDirectory 8.7.3.x to eDirectory 8.8.4 on NW 6.5, install eDirectory 8.8.3 first then apply NW 6.5 SP8" This applies to our next issue. Another issue that we are facing is tha...

Upgrading OES1, edir 8.7.3 to 8.8
Investigating the upgrade to 8.8 from 8.7.3. Right off, I am struck dumb by what I find in TID 10099872: "OES Linux Requires Newer NCP Engine To upgrade to eDirectory 8.8 on OES Linux SP2, you must use the "oes-edir88" channel which includes the needed NCP engine. "Warning: Do not install eDirectory 8.8 without first installing the newer NCP engine for eDirectory 8.8 or your server might be rendered inoperable. Also, do not install this updated NCP engine on a server running eDirectory 8.7.3."" The way it reads (to me) I cannot upgrade. What ...
