    Netware version reference

    Is there some sort of cross reference table that will give "Real"
    vs. "Reported" versions of Netware, i.e. Reported 5.70.05 = ??.??

    No TID that I'm aware of, but:

    5.00.xx = Netware 5 SP xx
    5.10.xx = Netware 5.1 SPxx
    5.60.xx = Netware 6.0 SP xx
    5.70.xx = Netware 6.5 SP xx

    So, 5.70.05 would be Netware 6.5 SP5 - If it existed yet.

    Alas, this is unfortunately not true. Both NW 5.0 and 5.1 report
    themselves as 5.0. Also, there is no obvious mapping between the
    subversion and the support pack level. For several NW 5.1 support packs,
    the subversion even remained the same. It's only with NW 6.0 that Novell
    consistently started using support pack versions as server.exe subversion
    numbers.

    NetWare 5.x versions are documented in the following TID:
