Hi! Good luck! =)
And please let us know how it goes. We have our master server also NW 5.1
(NW 6.5 OES is also installed into tree) and we have to (probably next
summer or so) move also ahead. Even NW 5.1 is ... ok. In-place upgrade will
be our choice, I think (because old box is not so old concerning hardware).
Most are we interested how to handle SYS, because it stays (as I understood)
after in-place upgrade with traditional file system, not NSS.
More thanks, Alar from Tartu University, ESTONIA.

We've done several in-place upgrades to NW6.5 with great success. Even
NDPS seems to come up working. I agree with Joe D. that a migration to
a new box is better because then you have a fresh, clean OS to run on.
But if the old server is fairly clean -- doesn't have any unique
configurations or hasn't been in-place upgraded before, and the hardware
has the power, then I'd go ahead with in-place. If you choose to
migrate to a new box. I can share with you a document that we've
developed here at my shop that gives us a step-by-step checklist to
