Netware 5.1 SP7 to Netware 6.5 SP1b
Did first in-place upgrade in Production yesterday.
1) Install seemed to hang at the very end. Closing installation files.
(We let it set for 20 minutes and then
closed diaglog box). Then was able to restart server. Server
was not hung.
2) Can not access iManager
Do I have to recreate CA for 6.5?
My test network which has different hardware works. I will compare results.
Any suggestions on what I can try next.
Was finally able to get iManager to work.

Using Netware 6.5 sp4, how can I after installing the pre-migration server
pattern install just the FTP server? Do I use the Install from the GUI or
do I use NWConfig?
I looked in the NW65PROD cd at the FTP directory, and just saw the ftp.zip.
I didn't see any .in or other 'installation' file to select from Install via
the GUI or NWConfig.
Thanks in advance!
