Section 1. Novell NetWare Installation Overview
Installing NetWare on your network server requires two major steps:
Step 1: Preparing the bootable devices (creating a DOS partition, formatting the partition,
installing DOS, and connect the system to a CD-ROM drive.)
Step 2: Install NetWare and the appropriate HP NetServer mass-storage drivers.
Section 2. Automated Installation via the HP NetServer
Navigator CD
An Automated Installation utility is available on your HP NetServer Navigator CD
provided with your HP NetServer that will guide you through the Novell NetWare
installation. This utility will automatically create a DOS partition, format the partition,
install DOS, connect the NetServer to the CD-ROM drive, start the NetWare installation
process and install the appropriate NetServer drivers. To use this utility, first boot your
HP NetServer using the Navigator CD. Once at the NetServer Navigator Main Menu,
select the Configure the Server option. From the NetServer Navigator Mode Selection
for Configuring the Server menu select Guided Setup. Follow the on-screen
instructions to configure your system and install Novell NetWare.
Section 3. Creating the Drivers Diskette and Installing
the IDE CD-ROM Driver
NOTE: Installing NetWare without using the Automated NOS Installation feature
of the HP NetServer Navigator CD requires familiarity with DOS as well as
NetWare. If you are not familiar with these operation systems, please use the
Automated NOS Installation via HP NetServer Navigator CD.
Creating Drivers Diskette
Requirements
•
HP NetServer Navigator CD-ROM
•
Blank formatted diskettes
To create a DOS/NetWare drivers diskette using the HP NetServer Navigator CD:
1. Boot your HP NetServer using the Navigator CD.
2. When prompted, select the desired operating system. Once the desired operating
system is highlighted select continue.
3. Once at the NetServer Navigator Main Menu, verify information in top right corner
of the screen, and then select Diskette Library.
4. Select the desired driver. Once the desired driver is highlighted, insert a blank
formatted 1.44 MB floppy diskette into the floppy drive and select Create
Diskette(s). (Manual installation requires NOS Drivers diskette).
5. Repeat step 4 until all desired driver diskettes are created.
6. Select the Exit icon located in the bottom left hand corner of the screen after all
driver diskettes have been created.
Installing the IDE CD-ROM Drive with FDATACD.SYS and
MSCDEX.EXE
To install Netware 4.2, you must first install a CD-ROM drive and driver in the DOS
environment by using the driver diskettes you created using the HP NetServer Navigator
CD.
NOTE: DOS CD-ROM drivers are available on the NOS Drivers Diskette in the
\Cdromdrv\IDEDOS directory.
1. Boot your HP NetServer using an MS DOS bootable utility diskette.
2. Use the fdisk utility to create a 250 MB primary DOS partition on the primary
drive(C:). Remember to set the partition to active.
3. Use the format utility to format 250 MB partition.
4. Install DOS. (For detail instruction, see the instructions in the NetWare
documentation.)
NOTE: If applicable, make sure to remark the DOS=HIGH and the
DEVICE=C:\DOS\HIMEM.SYS lines in the CONFIG.SYS file by inserting the
command REM at the beginning of each line (i.e., REM DOS=HIGH). Otherwise
NetWare may not function properly.
5. Insert the NOS Drivers Diskette created from the Navigator CD into the 1.44 MB
floppy drive (A:).
6. Create a subdirectory on drive C by entering the command:
MD directoryname
where directoryname is a valid name for a directory (for example: doscdrom).
7. Copy all DOS CDROM drivers from drive A to this subdirectory, by entering the
command:
Copy A:\CDROMDRV\IDEDOS\*.* C:\directoryname
8. Use the edit utility to add the following lines to your CONFIG.SYS file:
DEVICE=C:\directoryname\FDATACD.SYS /D:driver1
Where directoryname is the path to the directory containing the FDATACD.SYS
driver, and driver1 specifies the driver signature name of the first CD-ROM device
driver. The driver signature name must have fewer than eight characters, for example:
DEVICE=C:\DOSCDROM\FDATACD.SYS /D:HPCD000
NOTE: The MSCDEX driver is included with MS-DOS/Windows version 6.0 or
later. The MSCDEX driver also supports a driver signature parameter (for
example, /D:driver1). The name used for this parameter must match the name
used for the FDATACD.SYS driver signature parameter.
9. Use the DOS edit utility to add the following line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file:
C:\DOS\MSCDEX /D:driver1 /L:logical drive letter
For example, if C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EX /D:HPCD000 /L:E is used, the CD-ROM
drive is assigned to the DOS logical drive E: If you do not use option /L:E, the system
will automatically assign a DOS logical drive for the CD-ROM drive.
10. Power down your HP NetServer.
Section 4. Installing NetWare on the HP NetServer

existing installation will be replaced.
3. When prompted, select the appropriate Language to install.
4. Select the proper regional settings for your location.
5. Accept the NetWare 6.5 and Report Runtime license agreements.
6. Select either Default or Manual as the installation type. The Default installation
automatically detects drivers and installs the server with default settings. The Manual
installation allows you to configure settings and modify detected drivers.
7. Press <F1> at this screen to see more details on both installation methods.
8. Choose the method that best suits your network environment.
9. The steps below outline the Manual installation procedure.
10. For Express installations, select Continue on the two Installation Type screens and proceed
to step 22. below.
11. Create a Boot Partition.
12. Select Modify to create a boot partition.
13. Select Free Space, and press Enter.
14. Enter a DOS partition size between 500 MB and 2 GB. While a 500 MB DOS partition is
typically adequate, a larger DOS partition size will allow larger NetWare Core Dumps to
be created for problem analysis.
15. Wait for the DOS partition to be formatted, and then select Continue.
16. Confirm the Server settings shown by selecting Continue.
17. The NetWare 6.5 installation will begin the preliminary DOS file copy. When complete,
select and load the proper drivers for the following subsystems:
Storage Adapters – varies by server model
Network Adapters – varies by server model
18. Create the SYS: volume. The default is 4 GB, which is a satisfactory size for most
installation types.
19. Once the SYS: volume has been created, the NSS Management Utility screen is presented
where additional disk operations can be performed. This step is optional, and can be
skipped by selecting Continue Installation.
20. The NetWare 6.5 installation will begin the system file copy and will load the Installation
GUI when complete.
Note
Software RAID 5, although available as an option by selecting
RAID Devices, will not be supported by Novell or HP until at least
NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 1.
21. When the GUI loads, you have the option to choose a server type based upon the
anticipated use of the server. This option is called a Pattern Deployment, which customizes
certain settings during installation to optimize the server for the pattern selected. Unless you
are installing a server to meet one of the listed Patterns, HP recommends selecting Basic
NetWare File Server.
22. Review the summary screen to ensure that you meet the minimum hardware requirements
for the selected server pattern type, and then select Copy Files.
23. When prompted, insert the NetWare 6.5 Products CD. Allow the CD ample time to mount
(about 30 seconds), then select OK to continue the file copy process.
24. When prompted, insert the NetWare 6.5 License diskette. The first license file required is
for cryptography and will have an .NFK extension. It should be located in the \License
subdirectory on the diskette.
25. Select the Network Protocols for the installed network cards and enter the appropriate
information. IP and/or IPX can be selected from the Main screen. Advanced settings can
be entered by selecting the Advanced tab from the Main screen.
26. If desired, enter the server DNS host name and the Name Server IP Address. This
information is optional and can be skipped if DNS is not used on the network.
27. Select the proper time zone for the server installation.
28. Ensure that the proper time has been configured on the system prior to NetWare 6.5
installation. This setting will prevent eDirectory time synchronization issues after installation.
29. Select the proper eDirectory installation type.
30. Install in New Tree – used if this is the first server on the eDirectory tree
31. Install in Existing Tree – used if this server will be installed into an existing eDirectory tree
32. The base NetWare 6.5 license should already be installed. If additional licenses are to be
installed, browse to the correct location on diskette and select the appropriate license.
33. Enter the appropriate LDAP Configuration information.
34. For Clear Text, the default port is 389.
35. For SSL/TLS, the default port is 636.
36. Enter the appropriate NMAS Login Method. NDS is the default.
37. The NetWare 6.5 installation will now present a summary screen of the installation
choices.
38. Select Finish, and the final file copy will begin.
39. When prompted, remove the NetWare 6.5 media from the server CD-ROM and
diskette drives, and select Yes to reboot the server. After the server has rebooted,
the installation is complete and the server is functional.
Section 5. General NetWare Installation Tips
Tip #1. REGISTER MEMORY Command
If the NetWare network operating system does not recognize installed system memory
above 64 MB (for NetWare 4.xx) use the REGISTER MEMORY command to allow
NetWare to use all available system memory.
Add the following line to the AUTOEXEC.NCF file: REGISTER MEMORY start
length
Where start is the starting hex address where the memory beyond 16 MB or 64 MB
begins and length is the hex length of the memory installed beyond 16 MB or 64 MB.
Example: REGISTER MEMORY 1000000 400000
If the total memory in a system running NetWare 3.xx is 20 MB of RAM, NetWare will
only recognize the first 16 MB. The following line must then be added to the
AUTOEXEC.NCF file so that all the system memory will be auto-registered.
For more details on the REGISTER MEMORY command, please refer to your
NetWare System Administration manual.
Tip #2. Installing NetWare 6.5 on a 4 GB hard disk drive
Issue: If you have a 4GB capacity hard disk drive, during NetWare installation you may
see a pop-up window display insufficient active DOS partition... even
though an active DOS partition already exists.
Cause: This problem is caused by a defect in NWNSTLL.EXE file for the NetWare
installation utility.
Solution: There are 2 solutions to resolve this issue:
1. At the pop-up window just press the Enter key, the installation will continue to the
end. This error will NOT create any problem to the operating system.
2. Obtain the 4GBFIX.EXE files from Novell web site at:
http://support.novell.com
and follow the instructions in the .TXT file (included with the self-extracting file) to
install NetWare.
