Hello all,

I am planning an upgrade to Netware 6.5 district wide. We are currently
running NW 6.0 SP5 and post SP5 patches. We also have multiple trees and
I am hoping to merge them all into one after the upgrade to NW6.5.

In one tree, I am planning on replacing our Master replica server with new
hardware. So here are a couple of questions:

1. Should I be using server migration and just migrate from my NW 6.0
server to the newer NW6.5 server?


2. Should I upgrade the master replica server to NW6.5 then migrate to
the new server?


3. Install the new server into the tree and then use the Server
Consolidation Utility to move services and files to the new server and
then take the older server offline?

To me, the 3rd choice sounds easiest and then I can upgrade the rest of my
NW6.0 servers one at a time.

Lastly, I have new licensure (SLA license), do I need to install these
licenses in multiple parts of the tree so all servers can use them?

Any thoughts or opinions appreciated.
