Prior to performing your upgrade or migration from NetWare 5.1 or 6.0, we would strongly suggest the following;
- Download the eDirectory 8.7.3 IR3 Overlay CD which you will find by browsing to the following Novell Support page;
- Select "Downloadsâ then "Product Downloadsâ from the support home menu
- Select eDirectory from the pull-down menu of the "Product or Technology dialogue box and then hit the"Searchâ button
- Select "eDirectory 8.7.3 CD (ISO) Imagesâ from the results box
- Select the file titled"edir_873_ir3_nw.isoâ
- Download or print out the"Installation Instructionsâ from the same page you downloaded your image file.
- Create a CD from the image file (If you choose to extract the ISO image to a server directoryâ¦ "Please DO NOT change the directory structure of the imaged files in any wayâ).
Upgrading eDirectory to 126.96.36.199 minimum prior to the OS upgrade will allow for a more seamless process because you will be extending your schema in advance of the upgrade or migration.
If you desire to upgrade eDirectory on NetWare 5.1, eDirectory 188.8.131.52 is the lastest version recommended. eDirectory 184.108.40.206 or later has NOT been tested with NetWare 5.1
