How to upgrade Edir 8.7 to 8.8?

I am in the process of migrating a 6.5 sp7 Netware server to a new server (hardware).  I have followed the instructions in detail and the last step to take is to make sure both servers have same version of EDir. The source has version 8.7.3.9 and the destination has 8.8 sp2.
I have downloaded the 8.8 sp2 ISO version of Edir and burned it to a cd.  But how do I install it?  I have had no luck from NWCONFIG and the cd does not open in my client computer.

I have done this, but I get a message after some of the files are copied...
CDROM:NW\INSTAL\nl4\NDS8A.ILS cannot be removed. Error: error code 144 (90 hex). (ICMD-5.0-13)
press ENTER to continue
after doing so, the installation quits right away

So why didn't you post that before?

If you are having problems with the ISO, then download the Netware (my example) - specific EXE files to extract and then install:

Tell us if the results are the same.

I had not tried it before you had responded.  Thanks.  I will try the exe files.

The exe download worked.  However, the install was strange as it had to restart two times before the server was stable again.  Thanks.  The cd or the cd drive must be bad.

Yeah, sorry - I misunderstood what you wrote before.  I though you had tried but just didn't include that information.  Too many people do that.  You give them like 5 things to try and they say "I tried that already" - yet they fail to include that in their initial help request.

Is the server running ok now?  Kinda weird to hear about instability issues - i generally don't see any after doing eDirectory updates for people with a small client base.  But I don't know all that information regarding your setup so I'm only making general statements at this point.

Let us know if there's anything else we can possibly help with :)
