I have a 10 user 3.2 system that I need to upgrade to 25 user. I have purchased a full 25 user 3.12 version but would like to avoid an install. I tried copying the server.exe & running LSWAP but I get an abend when the HAM/CDM scan starts. If I don't run LSWAP it loads but the date is 1904 & I get a warning about "this version does not support BIOS access". I have a two-part question:
1) If I run without LSWAP & set the date manually upon boot, will I be OK or will I have date/disk access problems and no telling what else?
2) If option 1 is a bad idea, how can I get the 25 user server.exe to work after LSWAP? As I understand it, LSWAP applies patches to the server.exe, which would seem the prudent thing to do, but then my HAM drivers don't seem to work.
I have all latest patches applied.
And, no, upgrdaing to a later version of Netware is not an option. We are a small company & it would cost over $30,000 to upgrade the software we are running on Netware (an imaging system) to a later version.
