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

I did a 4.1o to 5.0 with SAA4.0 a coup...Installing one Netware 4.2 in a Netware 5.1 enviroment
We have to install a Netware 4.2 server in a Netware 5.1 SP6
with NDS Version 85.30 (Twenty 5.1 Servers). We also so have three
Netware 6 servers with eDir 8.6.2
Can we do this?
If so what patches and problems should we expect?
Yes, you can do this. Apply SP9 after installing 4.2, then the latest
DS update, v6.21. You can get them here:

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

With <30 or so, I would just do a new install. You need a fairly
differently configured box to do 6.5

is there any prep work I need to do before hand? Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know a way of forcing Netware 4.11 to use IP instead of IPX as
its preferred protocol? After removing IPX support from our netware 6
boxes, our netware 4.11 box can no longer communicate. I would have
thought that it would attempt to use IP instead of IPX... I haven't had a
lot of experience with netware 4.11 boxes.
Thanks in advance,
NW 4.11 can only use IPX for NCP communications. The only way to go
what looks like IP only is to use Netware/IP or CMD, but both these are
just ways of encapsulating IPX traffic in IP packets and they are no...netware 4.1 #2
we have netware 4.1 running on an ibm x-220 server. Initially we had two
identical x-220 servers mirrored using sft-iii. The HDD is ultra fast
and wide SCSI (10000 rpm). DOS based. Clients through remote booting.
Since the failure of one msl card, we are able to put only one server in
line now. I would like to know the following options:
1. Can we migrate from 4.1 to higher versions keeping the DOS platform
intact (ie. without using the GUI)
2. Is it possible to connect the second harddisk (same conf. as the
first one) in the existing server and do mirroring?

worked best. My NW51 original disks are scratched and...
