Upgrading Netware 6.5 to SUSE OES
Posted on 2007-11-13
I am new to Netware.
We are running Netware 6.5 w/o any support pack for the last 6 years and finally have been advised by local vendors to upgrade to SUSE OES.
we are planning not to upgrade the production server straightaway but to bring in a spare server and make a replica of the current netware server in case of any major problem we can switch back to netware 6.5. Then upgrade the production server to SUSE OES.
As part of project planning i am currently listing down the requirements and post project check list.
I am seeking expert advices in this regard.
a) Apart from data backup what are the other things to be taken into consideration while upgrading netware 6.5 ( NO SP) to SUSE OES?
b) What are things must be checked after the upgrade?
thanks in advance
