Hi Guys

We have an OES (no SP) running here, that is kind-a sick.
Dependencies are broken and a few other things.

I want to reinstall the server (it's a VMWare based server).

Can I do the following:

Shut eDir etc. down properly on the server.

Then save the contents of

remove the root disk.

Install OES SP1 (for a later easy upgrade to SP2)

Copy back the eDir/nici files

Start eDir

The eDir is going to change version this way, but as I can't do any installs on the box (as dependencies are broken), I can't upgrade it before.
The upgrade from OES noSP to OES SP1 is in my experience a very troubled one, so I think if this is possible, it would be the best way to upgrade it.
