HELP: ...Finally doing an upgrade of NW3.11 to NW3.12

Post by Richard M Jacks » Wed, 24 Sep 1997 04:00:00



Just wondering if I should be aware of any problems that might be
encountered.  It's a straight forward upgrade otherwise.

Server hardware was recently upgraded to:

P200 ATX, 512k Cache
256Mb RAM
Raid 5 Array (Adaptec 3985 using 3-Seagate 9.1Gb HD)
1-4.3Gb SCSI Hard drive
1-1.0Gb IDE boot drive
NW 3.11 - 100user
SMC 8432 PCI NIC

Thanks for your assistance!


I'd prefer an email as I am unable to check this group everyday.

It's pretty straight forward. I ran in to trouble doing one when I selected
the default ("DOS"?) file name format because there were some files on one
volume that kept the volume from mounting, hosing up the upgrade process.
Select the other choice ("Netware") and you should be fine.

If you don't have time to read the newsgroup, I don't have time to email
you. Either keep up, or learn to use DejaNews to check for answers at your
leisure.

Pity. Then you might never see this answer. Maybe it'll help somebody
else...

There are 2 solutions, 1) have a look which files involve the menu
system you used on 3.11 and copy them over/use them (I think its menu.exe
and menuparz.exe), 2) get dougmenu and have a little trouble to convert
the menu's but get blessed by the ease of its usage.
