NetWare to OES11 "identity transfer" upgrade

Anybody ever done one of these on a server where there's an IDM driver
set running?

We're planning a server migration here that will involve a NetWare to
OES11 "identity transfer" for eDirectory, but that also goes from 32-bit
to 64-bit.

I'm thinking my best bet is to take the drivers (eDir and GW) and shut
them down (startup=manual) before the upgrade. While the server guys are
working on the upgrade, I can change the driver configs (paths, etc.) in
Designer. After the identity swap is done, I can install IDM402 on the
new server, then deploy the changes from Designer, and everything
*should* be good to go. Probably.

I don't think I'm going to run in to any major problems with this. Have I
missed anything?

Possibly local state files that might cause a resync? (i.e. Non-RL JDBC
driver running on that engine).

Good point. In this case, no, I don't think so. The drivers are eDir and
GW. GW is in a Remote Loader. In cases like JDBC, yes, that'd be a
concern.

Yep, never had an issue (did it on 4 servers).

In my case, shut down the drivers on all the servers involved, did the
ID transfer, reinstalled the IDM code, changed my log file paths, and
that was it. Or so I remember.

I did document it somewhere, I believe, but I mostly "stole" stuff from
a cool solutions article that someone else wrote as well.

Although maybe I didn't quite do things "Right" with the state files.
But then again, our system isn't very busy at 5:00 p.m. either
