Version: BorderManager 3.6, NetWare 6
If you're moving to NetWare 6 and are using BorderManager, this tip can make the transition to the new NetWare a smooth one.
- Verify that the LAN cards you plan on running are tested and approved on NW6.
- Install NetWare 6.
- Re-boot the server and verify that the new Server OS install re-loads properly.
- Load INETCFG and transfer all LOAD & BINDS to the NETINFO file.
- Check PROTOCOLS > TCPIP.
Make sure IP Packet Forwarding is set to Enabled("Router") if you have multiple LAN cards.
Also make sure that LAN Static Routing is enabled and that a Default Route has been specified.
- Check the DNS Resolver Configuration and the addresses of DNS servers.
- Re-boot the server.
Make sure INETCFG is not loaded.
- Place the BorderManager 3.6 CD in the CDROM drive.
The BMEE36 volume should mount.
- Install BorderManager from the X Server -- Graphical Console.
Install from the ROOT of the BorderManager 3.6 CD that should now be mounted.
After the 3.6 install you must immediately install BM36SP1A.EXE Do not re-boot the server before installing BM36SP1A.EXE. The BM 3.6 install will downgrade many critical OS NLMs that need to be replaced prior to re-booting the server. Otherwise, it will abend when it re-loads. BM36SP1A.EXE will put the original files back in place.
