Novell NetWare 5.1
Migration from 4.11 to 5.1


Migration from NDS 6.xx/7.xx to NDS 8.xx failed
Migration from Recman database to Flaim failed
Migration seems to complete stage three then fails
EID's are still pointing to the Recman database instead of the new NDS 8 structure


Using the latest version of DIBMIG, found at https://support.novell.com/filefinder in PREDS8a.exe.
Copy DIBMIG to SYS:\SYSTEM.  Load DIBMIG, which will  run through the conversion of the database. This should be able to convert the database.
If there is fault tolerance in the replica rings of the partitions that are on the affected server, follow  Tid 7001592
Then add the replicas back to the server.

Additional Information

DIBMIG  never converted the EID's over properly
Formerly known as TID# 10062071
