Trying to perform an "in place" upgrade to a legacy NetWare 6.0 SP5 server.

Using ISO imaged NetWare 6.5 SP8 (and NetWare 6.5 SP7) disks.

Running from the server GUI - installs appear to start and the process claims to be "copying files"... I can see initial activity on the CD/DVD drive - but then the install stalls (it never completes nor kicks any errors).

The logger screen shows a JAVA error...

I tried upgrading JAVA from to 1.42.04 - bounced the server - and re-ran the installs (again tried both disks).

Out of frustration - I found and downloaded the ISO's for NetWare 6.5 SP6 - which I'll try tomorrow (I did read a couple posts where this is the perferred version).

Any thoughts?
