I am attempting to upgrade from 3.7 to 3.9. I upgraded the server form 6.0 to 6.5.7. When I tried to install 3.9 I got a :Fatal error in Product BMLicenceConfiguration". After clicking ok it said to check ni.log:

Informational: In the root state of installing Novell BorderManager 3.9.0.
Fatal: null
Fatal: java.lang.NullPointerException

The nierrors.log contains the same information. The NBM_Instlog.cvs says the status on everything is OK.
In an attempt to fix things I removed the 3.7 licences from the tree. Removed BM 3.7 with nwconfig.
Anyone have any ideas?
