I currrently have a NetWare 5.1 SP7 server with 0.5TB data connected to
a SAN. I wish to replace this server with a new server.

Can I leave the data on the SAN, disconnect and shutdown the existing
server and install the NetWare 6.5 server connect it to the SAN and have
it pick up the existing NSS volumes?

Obviously if this were possible I would need to perform a NSS upgrade.

Any thoughts?
