Removing a Netware 6.5 sp7 server from the Tree Permanently
Posted on 2009-05-12
I am trying to remove a Netware 6.5 server from the tree Permanently. This server is a Secondary server and has a Read/write replica on it. All data has been moved off as well as any users. My plan to remove this server is as follows.
1. Perform Heath check against Edirectory Tree.
2. Go to NWCONFIG and choose Remove DS from this server.
3. Delete all the references in NDS using ConsoleOne or NWADMIN for Licences.
Here is where I am confused. Many Posts say to go into C1 and delete the replica and wait until all servers sych. (This would be done before my Step 2) Is that necessary? Wouldnt going into NWCONFIG accomplish the same thing?
