Netware 6.5 SP8 Licensing

I've got a server that is running Netware 6.5 SP8. It (and its tree) have been upgraded starting at Netware 5, to 5.1, to 6 and now to 6.5. So the tree is quite old. I have created a brand new tree on a separate box and both trees/servers are running in parallel. Here's my question. How can I get the license file off the old server and onto the new server? Once I get the license file moved and all of the users' data moved, I'm going to down the old server and be done with it.

As a side note, when I login to the Novell website and see my products listed, there is a place to download the license file, but it says "We're sorry, we are unable to complete the download at this time. The Novell download site experienced an unexpected error condition. Please try your download again later."

Can anyone help me?

Thanks!

The license is supplied on the Netware 6.5SP8 disk, you can use this as its a full license. Its not a demo license.

I don't have the original disc. I downloaded the ISO from the Novell site.

Somewhere you should have an original NW65 disk, with the license key on
it. That's the one you would need to use.

By ISO do you perhaps mean the combined NetWare 6.5 with Service Pack 8
DVD (NW65SP8_OVL_DVD.iso)?

If so, there is an "Unlimited Server License - No User Licenses
Required" license file included in the LICENSE directory which you can use.

I went here: Installation Instructions and MD5 Values and downloaded NW65OSSP8 and NW65PRODSP8 iso files, burned them to disc and installed from there. Will the unlimited license file be located on one of those discs?

Yes.

And just to answer the original question: You can't move or export the
license once installed.
