Gimmee a break.  I'm not trying to become an MCSE or CNE, I'm just trying to find the answer to impress someone who can't find the answer themselves.  If I had access to a Novell server, I wouldn't be asking this @!&#@ question!

This is not a straight forward question

1  Does the server existing in another tree ?
2  Is this a new server yet to be built ?

pwoolford,

He's looking for a TEST ANSWER! This is a hypothetical Q for a quiz!

You can tell that 'cause the Q:

"List the steps to import a new NetWare (or NT if you prefer!)server into an existing tree."

Contains TWO completely disjoint possible answers!

I realise that this is not a "real world" question.  But it also can not be a "formal" quiz as there are so many different answers depending on the senario

Interesting though, import a NEW server ?
Answer - I wouldnt - I would install it into the tree.

Think the test maker needs some reading.

Well,
1. run dsmerge.nlm on the server containing the master of [root]
2. check time synchronization for the tree
3. check partition sychronization
4. choose merge two trees
5. clean up login scripts etc
6. check partitions with ndsmgr32
7. configure workstations if you didn't plan you merge correctly
How'd I do?  didn't even pull out my 4-5 update book :-)
Zombite has it right on, though... merging a server into another tree is a pain, just install it into the tree from the start.

sorry, I didn't mean it as a flame, I was just surprised I still remembered how to do it.  It's been almost 3 years since I merged two trees.  I don't really care about the points thing, I just come here to stay sharp.  If you wnat to give me points, you can click on one of the comments to accept it as an answer
good luck

I didn't realize that I could do that!  That's COOL!

Thank you for your assistance!  
The useless comments I was referring to was mark2150's first comment that he posted as an answer.

Thanks again!
