Moving a netware 6.5 server to a new context
Posted on 2004-10-07
Just looking for a refresher. I have a netware 6.5 server that is moving to a new data center tomorrow. It will be getting a new IP address and will have to be moved/consolidated into a new OU (along with all the users/groups etc). I Haven't done either (IP change or context move) since 5.1 and I'm looking for a refresher. The IP address change seems long winded but fairly straight forward. However, the move concerns me. My memory tells me there are a few objects that don't like to be moved.
Specifically, the SSL certificates and DNS/DHCP objects? Also, seems like the server should be clear of replicas? The old OU won't be going away just yet, but it will be soon. The server I'm moving holds the master replica of the OU I'm moving it out of and there is another server which holds the master replica of it's OU (where this server will be going).
Anyone have any gotchas for either the IP change or the move. No patching or updating will occur. All servers in the tree are 6 or 6.5 and the root replica sits on 6.5. I know the users, groups, templates, profiles, etc will move easy.
Thanks for any insight,
