If you're going to install a new server from the Netware 6.5 SP5 Overlay CD, please update the IBM ServeRAID drivers and firmware to 7.12.03.

In fact, if you have a ServeRAID 5i card, make sure you're using the 7.12.03 anyway. There's a critical update that causes havoc on Netware servers. I kept having my RAID array go offline about every 6-8 hours causing a server crash. A simple reboot brings everything back to life but hey, reboots are for Windows servers right?

I'm sure there's a README for this somewhere but who reads the READMEs anyway?
