Upgrading a Netware 5.1 server to Netware 6.5

I am part of a large tree. Before starting upgrade of Netware 5.1 server
to Netware 6.5 I ran dsrepair and received no errors. During the Health
check of the upgrade I received two warnings. They are Warning extend
schema and repair schema. All the primary servers in the tree have
already been upgraded to Netware 6.5. The admin of the primary servers
control extend the schema. I am trying to find out if the warnings I
received is something they need to repair or is there something else I
need to do on my own server? I would appreciated any help I can get.

Thanks
Michele

There is no replica on this server. The primary IT deparment controls
where replica's are placed.

Thanks

Check schema sync; on the 5.1 server, and on the server which is master
of the partition holding the 5.1 server object, do:

Set dstrace=1
Set dstrace=+schema
Set dstrace=*ss

If you see a clean sync on both with no errors, you should be cool to
upgrade.
