Remove 6.5 sp2 Server

I currently have a 6.5 sp2 server in production...It has DNS and master
replica on it....I have been told to remove this server...Any idea on
where I can find documentation on how to do this....I already have a
server picked out that has R/W replica info on it that I would like to
change to master....Regarding DNS on this server, I also have another
Netware box that serves as an additional DNS server...

Use one of the admin tools to designated another server as the Master
replica. After taking care of the DNS server, you can use NWConfig to
remove Directory Services from the server. You may then have to
delete a few objects, such as volumes, left behind. Also, be sure
that this server is not a SINGLE or REFERENCE time server, and is not
a DA.

Ask in the novell.support.netware.dns-dhcp forum for help on the DNS
server part.

Re: Remove 6.5 sp2 Server

Thanks Don, so lets say I go into Imanager, partition and replica, click
on replica view, look at the server on want to make my master, I see r/w
to all the paritions on want to make master, than I click on r/w under
type, and change it to master...Is that correct?
