New server needs to be able to get to the tree root using new APIs

Ensure that the Master replica of every partition between where you are trying to install the new server and Root is held on a NetWare 6 server.

Workarounds:

- Put the master replica of every partition on a single NetWare 6 box for the duration of the upgrade

- Install servers starting at the top of the tree and work downwards
