Ideas wanted for migrate from Netware 5.0

Hi,

I have a Netware 5.0 tree containing only Netware 5.0SP6 servers.

We have a seperate tree, running OES linux SP1.

Users are already migrated (imported to the oes linux tree).

I want to migrate my data from the netware servers to the oes linux servers.
I have multiples options, and would like your ideas on that.

1) Use the tape backup to perform a full backup with the netware, and
put that on disk, then restore it the my linux servers, directly
I'll loose my trustess, but i can reimport that using tbackup.

2) Use the consolidation tool, but it doesn't support netware 5.0, so
i'll have to upgrade my servers to 5.1 or 6.5... Any caveats ?

3) try to ftp this server from my linux box, but the ftp services from
5.0 seems funky, and i have trouble restoring everything correctly (long
file names, extended caracters, etc.)

4) copy files using my novell client (yourk, 100gb of data and more...)

My netware volumes are traditional volumes (netware 5.0 obligation...)
and are compressed...

If I would be able not to touch my source (netware 5.0 servers) at all,
I'd be happy, in case something goes wrong...

Any other suggestions ?

Thanks
Marc

May be you must try Migration Wizard 7.0?

You must have new sms modules on NW 5.0

Re: Ideas wanted for migrate from Netware 5.0

Migration Wizard only supports Netware 5.1, not 5.0
And it doesn't supports OES Linux...

Re: Ideas wanted for migrate from Netware 5.0

See the note and link inside the document, to Migration Wizard 6.5, for
older versions of NetWare. The best way to get to OES Linux is to go
through NW 6.5. You get the media for NW 6.5 when you buy OES Linux, so
you have the tools to do that if you have the hardware. You might have
to go from 5.0 to 5.1 with the older Wizard, then from 5.1 to 6.5 with
the newer one, but as Dimitry said, you may be able to use the newer
wizard and go direct from 5.0 with newer SMS modules loaded on it.
