I am trying to move from a mixed environment of 5.0 and 6.0 to 6.5.
After much ado I can go from NetWare 5.0 sp 6 to NetWare 6.0 sp 5. But
now when I try to go from NW 6.0 sp5 to 6.5 sp5 I get:

"The product install cannot proceed because the version of your NetWare
target server does not match the NetWare 6.5 source media you have
selected to install products from..."

I am doing an in place upgrade from the NW 6.5 sp5 overlay cd (from

The steps I have taken are:

1. on the NW6.0 server load the GUI (startx)
2. click on the Novell button
3. click on Install
4. click add
5. browse to the CD and click on product.ni (it's on the root of the CD)
6. click OK, then OK again
7. wait (it copies files, then it initalizes the installation wizard),
read, weep.

This same disk worked in my experimenting with upgrading from NW5.1.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks for any help.
