Upgrade path Advice

Currently running 8.8.7 sp1 on win2008r2 standard and idm 4.02. I have
Netware edir 8.8sp5 and OES 8.8.8sp4. I want to get the windows box up to
speed but I'm unsure of which patches to apply. do I need to go to the
latest 8.8.7 sp6 patch first then apply 8.8.8sp4? or can I go straight to
8.8.8 sp4 keeping in mind if IDM4.02 is compatible with the newer versions.
thanks in advance.

Re: Upgrade path Advice

The readme for 8.8 SP8 Patch 4 states that 8.8 SP8 must already be on the
server:

https://dl.netiq.com/Download?buildid=nlOmW2y333Q~

You should be able to patch directly to 8.8 SP8 from 8.8 SP7-anything, though.

Yep. thanks. And I see the SP7 downloads in my restricted patches. But when
I go to the 8.8 sp8 patches only patch 4 is available. Which requires 8.8
sp8 be installed first. Can't seem to find the baseline 8.8 sp8 install
anywhere. I apologize if I am missing something obvious and thanks again for
pointing me in the right direction. I also noticed that your link took my to
the Netiq side of the world and I am used to living in the Novell side. Am I
looking in the wrong place?

Just go to https://dl.netiq.com/ and search under eDirectory (drop-down).
8.8 SP8 is a full product installer.
