I'm having an issue with a server software distribution... I know the CPK
file is fine, as I've used it to upgrade a NW6.5SP3 subscriber to SP4a
already.

The subscriber that I am trying to upgrade this time is also an NW6.5SP3
one, the only difference that this time, the distributer and the subscriber
are the same server... I was assured by a Novell tech last month that this
would work, and that I could upgrade all my servers this way.

In both cases, the servers are running ZfS7, as it came out of the box
(well, downloaded).

I'm just trying to streamline the upgrade process, and I don't want to have
one server where I have to do things manually if I can avoid it. I suppose I
could set up a seperate distributer to upgrade the 'master' distributer, but
that seems kinda icky.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
