Draft NW6.0 Wiki

Starting point for NW6.0 wiki -- for those who need to maintain older configurations.

NW6.0 is no longer supported. This page reflects community wisdom only.

The following is from Jason Doering's post of Tue, 19 Sep 2006 14:19:12 GMT in novell.support.netware.6x.abends-hangs Message-ID: <A%SPg.562$6c7.89@prv-forum2.provo.novell.com>

It is highly recommended to perform a rebuild of all NSS pools after applying this patch. Be sure to have a tested backup just in case.

Be sure to apply the appropriate encryption level for your server. The NICI set is only necessary for BorderManager servers.

Other files of note

Various library/TCP patches:

Note: Newer patches (nwlib6j, nwlib6k, and wsock6l) have not received thorough testing with NW 6.0 by Novell, but may work better for ancillary or third party products.

NDPS/iPrint Updates:

These two patches are recommended if you are running NDPS/iPrint:

If you still have NDPS/iPrint problems with 11d, try 12c: Note: 12c has only officially been tested on NW6.5, so use at your own risk

If you upgrade the iPrint client to 4.11 or above, apply this patch:

Current iPrint client:

Vendors are no longer updating drivers for NW6.0, but in most cases the drivers from NW6.5 will work just fine. Get newer ones either from your vendor or out of the current 6.5 service pack. Be sure to update firmware in your system, too -- some drivers are very dependent on matching firmware versions (especially HBAs and RAID controllers).
