I performed a Live update to an ailing NW 6.5SP2 server and repaired
several problems. I need to migrate this server to an new Dell server
using Migration Wiz 8.1. In the case of my other branch servers, I have
used the Wizard to migrate from SP2 to a new server with the SP5
"Pre-Migration" template. This has worked very well.

In this case, however, I would be migrating from SP6 source to SP5 target.

May I use the SP6 "Overlay" CDs the same way I would use installer CDs to
prepare my Migration target? Or what? I do not find anything in Migration
documentation about patching a pre-migration server, but I wonder if this
might be an option?
