I am considering updating our server from NetWare 4.10 to NetWare 4.11

I currently have two NetWare Servers; located in two different states.

        One has NetWare 4.11 that was brought up in the NetWare 4.10
        tree and partitioned.

        What are the gotchas upgrading to NetWare 4.11

        What are the steps to upgrade

        How much time should be planned to perform the upgrade

Starting from you last question, this depends on serveral factors, particulary which client software you are running on your workstations, how many workstations, and how many of them need their software upgraded.  On the server side, are you planning on using the AppLauncher to automatically upgrade client software, installing the Web server, adding additional name spaces -- important if you have WIN95 clients and have the os/2 name space loaded as it has been replaced with long.nam --  The big gotcha is that there is no migration or upgrade utility from 4.1 to 4.11 like from 2.1x, 3.x or 4.0.

I have successfully overinstalled on 90+% of our 4.1 to 4.11 migrations.  By this I mean 2 good verified NDS & file backups, remove OS/2 .nam (ubless OS/2 was being supported in its native format)  and install 4.11 over the 4.1 and then change configuration as necessary.  Less than 10% (but if this becomes the case with your install it is important) I have has to completely wipe the hard drive and start from scratch.  This usually comes if the DOS partition is not large enough.  I would recommend a minimum of 250MB DOS partition, if you are anticipating using this machine as a server for several years.
