Product Overlay SP7 says wrong SP

I have an iManager 2.7, that refuses to let me install plug-ins
(everything has been tried 5 times).
So to re-install, I place my SP7 Overlay Product CD in my NetWare 6.5
sp7 server.
I then start STARTX and choose Install and Add, and point to the CD.
But then it says that my current serfice pack doesn't match the
service pack on the CD.

I have tried 2 different CD's, and I know the CD is OK (MD5 etc.)

What's up? Some XML files not updated? Or how does it probe the
service pack level?

Hmm. Maybe exactly what the error message says? Do you run SP7 on that
server? What does "Version" say? And what does nwconfig > installed
products show?

Re: Product Overlay SP7 says wrong SP

I suggest you download and install the standalone SP7, maybe the previous time it didn't update products.dat properly. You can see that in nwconfig - view installed products.

Re: Product Overlay SP7 says wrong SP

Sorry guys, I should have checked the NWCONFIG info.
As you can see it says SP6. But this server was installed form scratch
on a SP6 overlay, and then patched to SP7 immediately after.
So I'm a bit puzzled, as to what went wrong here.

I'll try and apply SP7 again, otherwise I'll backrev to SP6 and try
again.

Thanks for the replies....

The NWCONFIG installed product says:
SPACK 6.5.6 v6.0 Support Pack for NetWare 6.5

The Server screen says:
Novell Open Enterprise Server, NetWare 6.5 Support Pack Revision 07
(C) Copyright 1983-2007 Novell Inc. All Rights Reserved. Patent
Pending.
Server Version 5.70.07 September 18, 2007 Novell eDirectory Version

Novell NetWare 6 Server 650

The error message says:
The product install cannot proceed because the version of your NetWare
target server does not match the NetWare 6.5 source media you have
selected to install products from. NetWare 6.5 product installs are
version
dependent; for example, you can't install products from NetWare 6.5
SP4
source media on a NetWare 6.5 SP3 server.
