I was reading through the OES Linux install guide and came across this

2.4.3 Installing into an Existing NetWare Tree
IMPORTANT:If you are installing into an eDirectory tree that is using a
NetWare server to supply LDAP, upgrade the LDAP server that the OES
Linux installation will communicate with to the NetWare 6.5 SP3 or
later software; otherwise, the server (running NetWare 6.5 SP2 or
earlier) will most likely abend.

Almost all of my servers in the existing tree are Netware 6.0 SP5. My
question is...if I have the new OES Linux server handle future LDAP
requests (instead of pointing requests to an existing Netware server),
does that solve the above issue?
