1.0 Installing the NFS Gateway for NetWare 6.5

This section provides instructions for installing the NFS Gateway for NetWare 6.5 software.

1.1 Meeting System Requirements

1.2 Downloading the NFS Gateway for NetWare 6.5

Download the NFS Gateway image file and extract the files to the required directory on the server where the product will be installed.

1.3 Installing the NFS Gateway

After meeting the system requirements, you can proceed to install the NFS Gateway.

The NFS Gateway product upgrade from NetWare 6 Support Pack 3 to NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 1 is supported. However, if you have a version of the gateway previous to NetWare 6 Support Pack 3, then you still need to reinstall the NFS Gateway because an NFS Gateway upgrade from NetWare 5.1 to NetWare 6.5 is not supported.

To install the NFS Gateway:

  1. Stop the NFS services.

    1. Enter the nfsstop command at the console prompt.

    2. Unload nfsadmin and pkernel by entering the following commands at the console prompt:

      unload nfsadmin

      unload pkernel

  2. Install the NFS Gateway using either NWCONFIG or the GUI install utility.

    1. To install using NWCONFIG:

      • Select Install a Product Not Listed
      • From the options displayed, select Press <F3> to Specify a Different Path.
      • Specify the directory path where you extracted the NFS Gateway package.


      To install using the GUI install utility:

      • From GUI Start, select Install
      • In the Installed Products list, click Add to install NFS Gateway for NetWare 6.5
      • In the Source Path dialog box, enter details such as Path to Install from and Response File or Install Script to Use

      Wait while the required installation files are copied.

    2. On the Welcome page, click Next to proceed.

    3. Read and accept the license agreement.

    4. Install the product license by browsing to or specifying the NFS Gateway license filename (*.nlf), then click Next.


      Select Install without Licenses to proceed with the installation. You can install the license later by using either the NWADMIN utility or iManager.

      Wait while the install copies new files and also backs up the existing common files of this product and Native File Access for UNIX.

      To understand and resolve error messages displayed during the install, refer to install.txt located in the product installation directory.

    5. (Conditional) If you selected to install the license in Step 2.d, then on the authentication screen, provide the username (administrator or admin equivalent), password, and context.

      This authenticates the administrator to the eDirectoryTM tree where the license is to be installed.

    6. Click View to read the Readme file, or click Close.

  3. (Optional) Install the iManager plug-in, the Web-based administration utility for NFS Gateway.

    To install the NFS Gateway snap-in (nfsgyadmin.npm located at the root directory of the product), complete the steps given in the Downloading and Installing iManager Plug-in section of Novell iManager 2.x Administration Guide.

    For more information on administering the NFS Gateway using iManager, see iManager-Based Administration chapter of the NFS Gateway for NetWare 6.5 Administration Guide.

  4. Restart the NetWare server.
