NetWare Migration Wizard

By chris.riley ·
Over the past month I have done 2 NetWare 4.11 - 5.1 migrations using the Migration Wizard. On both occasions I have hit the same problem when trying the last step (Finish NDS Migration). I get the following error:

Some of the files in the _Netware directory were not deleted
(Error code: 0X89fb Function Name: NWNCPExtensionRequest)

On one of the upgrades I was able to choose the Tools-Restore Trustees to Source option but this did not work on the other one (I used tbackup instead).

Does anyone know what causes these errors as I am doing another migration in a couple of weeks! Thanks...

NetWare Migration Wizard

I don't know why you are receiving that error however reading your post I assume that you have not upgraded the server holding the Master Replica. Be careful. Make sure that another user (other than Admin) has full NDS and file system rights to all servers in the tree. Something Novell does not tell you. We learned the hard way and had to have Novell dial in to restore rights to the Admin account. If you are using the Migration Wizard to Upgrade to new hard was it seems that the Migration Wizard strips the Admin of your older box and doesn't transfer them to the new box.
