By sjenkins ·
I plan to replace an ageing Netware 5.1 server with a new server. Could someone point me to the correct procedure to do this.

Thanks

Your question is very non-specific and it's hard to make a detailed response. I would recommend you look over this article from Novell:

http://www.novell.com/products/netware/deployment_solutions/upgrading/

(delete any spaces in the URL)

Ifyou need more information and specifics, please let us know more and I'll be glad to offer my advice.

Good luck!

If you are planning on removing the old server from service, I'd suggest looking into ServerMagic. This will allow you to migrate over the wire with the ability to resize volumes, combine volume segments and so on. Novell has some utilities to allow a similar migration but IMHO, ServerMagic is the easiest/best way to go.

Hi,
i've just migrated data from an old nw5.1 to a Dell bells and whistle server.
I used Migration wizard 6 from Novells website.
I tried in a test lab first.
Give it a shot.
