Move NW 6.0 License to a new hardware

Hi folks,

my situation is:

a compaq dl360 server with nw 6.0 with SYS volume mounted on local disk and all other volumes mounted on a SAN connected in fiber optic.

my target is the migration of Netware 6.0, maintaining version and volumes configuration, on another server (probably a HP DL380).

The questions are:

1) how can I move license file from old to new server? Restoring a full backup is enough?
2) Are there any special HW issues in using such model of server (HP DL380)?

Thank you very much for help.

By using the proper migration tools and procedures for your task, which
will do everything automagically. In your case, that's the server
consolidation and migration toolkit (SCMT).

If it's a G5, you will run into severe issues getting NW6.0 to run on it
at all. NW6.0 is long unsupported, and has close to unsolveable problems
running on modern CPUs.

Note that 6.0 licenses do not reside on the server at all. They are in eDirectory, and the migration to new hardware will have no effect on them at all.
