I'm planning an upgrade from IDM 3.51/NetWare to IDM 3.61/Linux (RHEL).
The complicating factor is that my current ID vault server is still
pretty new and beefy (HP blade server with 8-way processor and 8GB of
RAM) and I'd like to keep using it.

My tentative plan is to temporarily migrate the NetWare ID vault onto a
VMware guest using Novell's Server Migration Toolkit while I:
1. wipe the box that had been hosting the vault and install Linux,
eDir & IDM 3.61
2. Install the Linux box into the vault tree and add it to the driverset
3. Move the drivers onto the Linux box
4. Retire the NetWare server

Does this sound like the best way to approach this?
