The server is updated with every patch as discribed in earlier postings

Running the deployment manager works fine until the moment where you try to
prepare the server for update. The deployment manager comes up with the
error that the target server is not a nw5.1 server and asks for a different
servername.

The next problem comes up when i try to update the schema.
I get loads of errors saying loader cannot find public symbol: NX...........
for module DSISCH.NLM

The NI.LOG shows this:

How can I go on.
In earlier threds I red about going to NW 6.0 first. If this is the solution
I will do so. But where do I get the source data.

Help would be appreciated.
