Netware 6.5 install queries

Hi,

Im after some pre-upgrade advice really, as we dont run 6.5 yet...

We have 5 Netware 6 servers on our NDS/Edir tree, which spreads over 3 UK
sites (connected via VPNs).
3 servers live at head office, and the MASTER replica is our main server.

We are buying a new server very soon, to replace the main server at head
office.

Im after some advice and guidelines/pre-requisites for upgrading our MASTER
server to 6.5. How will this effect the rest of the tree? Im sure there's a
usefull guideline document out there, but any "real-life" tips or precedures
would be most appreicated.

TIA
Alan

Re: Netware 6.5 install queries

What is your DS level? Are you already at eDir 8.7.3???

I'd first upgrade to eDir 8.7.3 first. (That is where I'm at on all my servers with a mix of SP 3 and SP 4 moving to SP 4.)

Then install the new server at NW 65 (SP 4 is the latest release).

Then you could move the Master replica to the new server until you've upgraded all the other servers.

DS.NLM is 8.6.2... So if I upgrade our servers to the latest EDir, I can introduce a 6.5 server to the tree, with no problems?

TIA

yes - if you download the NetWare 6.5 SP4 ISO's, and you put the OS CD
into a windows workstation, it will run the Deployment Manager which
will check your tree and make recommendations on what you need to do to
prepare for 6.5 - and IIRC, it may update eDir for you if you let it
