    Many thanks in advance….

      Well first off backup your Netware Server. Then install your new drives and configure RAID using Compaq’s Insight Manager and preform a plain Netware installed using the server’s old name and ip address. After installation is complete then just restore the data and your all set. This is a little time consuming however it is the best way to to something like this. However this assumes that this server does not hold the Master replica and if it had a R/W or R/O then you must delete it before you do anything.
