Will certs with SHA-2 on OES2015 interoperate with NW6.5sp8

Hi,

Looking into the feasability of supporting SHA2 certs on a mixed network of OES2015 and NetWare 6.5sp8. Novell just released updates to eDirectory to support the creation and use of the tree RootCA using SHA-2 ciphers - see TID 7017122. There is no mention of whether or not this will break the communications between edirectory on OES2015 and NetWare. Since there is no support for SHA2 on NetWare I suspect that the NetWare servers will no longer be able to decipher encrypted comms from eDirectory on OES2015 servers upgraded to support SHA-2. But I could be wrong... It would be nice if I was wrong - can anyone provide insight into this scenario?

Cheers,

Ron

Sorry. It is as I thougt. EDir does not use certificates for anything
so it should work.
