A very nice explanation indeed. I am facing the similar scenario but the only difference is migrating from Netware 6.5 to Oes2018sp1. We have a lot of Netware 6.5, Oes11sp1/sp2/sp3 and Oes2015sp1 servers in the tree with Netware 6.5 holding the master of root. Looking to migrate to oes2018sp1 but confused about how to proceed. most of the child partitions in the tree have netware as master and a few has oes11sp3 as master.
Services running are mostly NSS volumes for file services, Groupwise 18 and a few others applications.
All Useful tips and steps to proceed would be highly appreciated.
