We will be taking our second shot at upgrading a NetWare 6.5 SP3 server to SP4a in a few hours. We had very bad results using the straight SP4a CD last time (java issues) and had to do a down server upgrade and bring it back to SP3 (didn't have SP4a overlays on hand).

We want to make sure it's okay to just do a down server upgrade right from the start. We will rem out any java apps this time - although I don't think that's probably critical since we'll be booting off of the OS Overlay SP4a during the down-server upgrade. Any other suggestions? I heard maybe we should un-install iManager first?

Thanks - April
