How to install netware 6.5 license without imanager

I have been trying to install a 6.5 server for several days now to
replace a 6.0 that fried. I have it up, but with no licenses. So no one
can login. I try to login in to Novell remote manager and get Login
Error! Username or password invalid. I can login anywhere else in the
tree except this server. A quick look at the error log shows this
repeating: Server OCHS is unable to obtain a server base license unit.
Connection to this server is NOT allowed. Ensure that licensing units
are available and verify NLS operation. Error # C0001002.
1-12-2007 4:51:50 pm: SERVER-5.70-3651
Severity = 1 Locus = 14 Class = 2
POLICY MANAGER - (5.00-014): Connection 81 is using a 'grace'
connection to Server OCHS because no licenses were installed or
available. Install a Connection License (admin.EDUCATION.OCSTREE.)

SO I am assuming I cannot login because the available logins are used,
but I cannot get in because other servers automatically take my available
logins before I can login. I also cannot get into imanager at all
(unless remote manager is it) because it does not seem to be running.
All of our other 15 servers are 6.0 and running great. This is 6.5
simply because we could not find a server that would support 6.0
anymore. SO how can I make this server get properly licensed.

Thanks, David

Server connections should not consume any licenses. You can check in
MONITOR.NLM, Connections who is using connection 81 in the case you
provided.

Can you attack to the server from a WS? TRy logging in locally, then just
browse for the server or try start/run \\serverip\sys:

Then try running NWadmin32.

OTOH, you mention other servers? If they are in the same tree, then you do
not need to be logged in to this server at all. Launch NWAdmin32 from any
server and install a 6.5 server license and 6.5 connection licenses in the
container where the 6.5 server is located, or above. The server will then
find those.

But if there were other servers it sounds like the original install of
the OS was done while this server was not connected to the network.
Installing a new server 6.5 to be added to an existing network requires
no licensing action at all for me if one points to the existing
directory during the install process.

NWADMIN did the trick. THis was our first nw6.5 server and it was
initially loaded at a site away from our tree. So I have now resolved
first problem of 200. David
