I have a NetWare 6.5 tree here at work and we are planning on migrating to OES 11.2/2015 but are waiting on some hardware to come in and then to make some more decisions (slow-moving place we have here ... obviously).

My question is this: can I add an OES 11.2 server to our tree as it sits right now (eDirectory 8.7+) so that I can start using some of the newer appliances (Filr, iPrint Mobile, etc.) and then slowly start migrating over the NetWare servers as times permits (and hardware comes in ... waiting on our new SAN). Will our current NetWare servers coexist nicely for the time being until I start killing them off?
