I am currently considering a update to 4.11 but am unsure of the upgrade issues as I am trying to determine how long a typical install would take.
I imagine the INSTALL program is run as the site only has one server but I have a feeling that as its INTRANETWARE there may be certain elements I dont need. My big worry is the effect on NDS and how this upgrade will change anything.

Intranetware comes on 4 cd-roms, the first contains the intranetware os (or 4.11 netware). It is possible simply to install 4.11 without all the added features such as the web server, ftp services or NIAS.  you should however make sure that you do have your current 4.1 server fully patched, including the latest version of DS. If your server has been running for some time with the verion of DS shipped with 4.10 i would apply the latest DS patches and run a full dsrepair. This will take care of any DS issues you might have had. aside from this it is a simple upgrade and simply insures you have all the lates versions of the files. You should then proceed to apply IWSP2.exe (intranetware support pack 2). A typical upgrade as described above should take no more than an hour from start to finish, and yes simply run install from the cdrom, one of the options is to upgrade a 4.x server.

Make sure you read the section on minimum requirements, and never attemp an upgrades withought having at least 2 full (and verified) backups. Also ensure that your backup software is capable of backing up Directory services. I would suggest that you give yourself plenty of time to complete the upgrade, in the event that something does go wrong.

The only problems i have seen in a 4.1 to 4.11 upgrade involves name space issues. the os2.nam has now been replaced with Long.nam and there are a few issues that might cause the file names to be truncated.

It is difficult giving a more accurate assesment without knowing your comlpete setup (ie server type, hard drive type, Ram nic's and controller types.)

I hope this helps to point you in the right direction, let me know if you require more spacific information.
