Just a quick question. Preparing to migrate a Netware 6.5sp7 server onto a
VMware ESXi platform. The plan is to install a new Netware 6.5 sp8 server
using the pre-migration Server pattern onto the ESXi platform, then use SCMT
to move data and services from the old server to the new one.

According to the SCMT user guide/manual, Section 10.3, "if the destination
server is running Netware 6.5 or OES Netware, you must disable the Universal
Password feature until the migration completes. Universal Password is
disabled by default n Netware 6.5 and OES Netware".

Universal Password is enabled on my existing source servers (there are three
of them, all the same SP and all in the same tree). I presume that a
pre-migration pattern installs Netware with Universal Password disabled, so
the destination server will have UP turned off.

Do I need to disable UP on my source server/network as well? If so, what
ramifications would there be to disabling it for the time it takes to do the
migration, then re-enabling it?

I look forward to your response
