2.26 Completing the Server Installation

After the installation is finished, remove NetWare 6.5 SP6 CD 2 (Products) and click Yes to restart the server.

If you selected to load the server on reboot, the NetWare server software will automatically load when the computer reboots.

If you selected to not load the server on reboot, you can load it manually. To load the server manually, reboot the computer by clicking Yes. When the computer reboots, change to the startup directory containing the NetWare server files (c:\nwserver) and enter SERVER.

Your NetWare server installation is now complete. In addition to installing the products necessary for your server to run as designed, two volumes were created on the server: sys: and _admin. These volumes are required for the server to function and must not be deleted.

NetWare Installation with Existing Volumes

If you installed NetWare on a server with existing NSS or traditional NetWare volumes, the install did not create eDirectory objects in the tree for the existing volumes. You must mount the pre-existing volumes, then create an eDirectory object for each volume.

To create an eDirectory object for an NSS volume using iManager:

  1. Launch iManager on your workstation.

  2. In the left-hand navigation frame, click the Plus sign (+) next to the Storage heading.

  3. Click the Volumes link under the Storage heading.

    The existing volumes for the server are displayed in the Volume Management frame of the iManager screen.

  4. Select the volume you want to create an eDirectory object for.

  5. Click the Mount link in the Volume Management frame of iManager.

  6. Click the Update eDirectory link in the Volume Management frame of iManager.

To create an eDirectory object for an NSS volume using NSSMU:

  1. Enter load nssmu at the server console.

  2. Select Volumes, then press Enter.

  3. Select the Volume that needs to have an eDirectory object created for it.

  4. To update eDirectory with the new Volume object, press F8 > Alt+F8.

To create an eDirectory object for a traditional volume using NetWare Remote Manager:

  1. Launch NetWare Remote Manager on your workstation.

  2. In the left navigation frame, click the Partition Disks link under the Manage Server heading.

  3. In the right frame of the browser window, locate the volume you want to create.

  4. Click the Create eDir Object link next to the desired volume.

    The Create eDir Object link disappears after the object is created.
