Licensing question 5.0.4 - 5.0.6
We need to upgrade a backup server from 5.0.4 to 5.0.6 (same as live
server). Our supplier told us that a base pack upgrade for 5.0.6 is not
available and we would have to have 5.0.7. This version of Sco is not
certified compatible with our server. Does anyone know if we can install
5.0.7 licences on 5.0.6?
Also it feels like the supplier is telling stories to force us into buying a
new server. Does anyone know if 5.0.6 base packs are available?
Thanks for your help

I've inheirited 3 SCO Servers and need to upgrade one to 5.0.6 from
5.0.5. The other two are at 5.0.6 and I want them all in line. Some
1. Does SCO charge for this upgrade? If so, how much?
2. How easy is the upgrade?
3. Should I go to 5.0.7 instead for all the machines?

...SYbase SQL & SCO OpenServer 5.0.4/5.0.5
Can somone help me with wich SQL versions runs on SCO OSR5.0.4 and SCO OSR
So your the customer SCO still has :-)
Sorry.. Couldn't resist !
ASE 10.0.2 was certified on SCO OSR5.0.2 with OS patches SLS 422a, SLS
437a. It wasn't certified on anything higher.
ASE 11.0.x was certified on 5.0.4, but nothing higher.
Sybase doesn't support 10.x or 11.x any more
...Looking for precompiled 'rsync" for SCO 5.0.5, 5.0.6 and 5.0.7
I was recommended to use 'rsync' for multi-site transfers. But I have
come to find that "rsync" does not exist already in OpenServer 5.0.5,
5.0.6 and 5.0.7. You can only get the "source" files which you "must"
compile in order to create the "rsync." These seems to require that
you compile these on every level of OpenServer you need.
Where / how can I get the 'rsync' binaries already compiled for the
levels I need?

...NFS SCo 5.0.5 with SCO 6.0.0
I have a folder on SCO 5.0.5 server shared through NFS with a new SCO 6.0.0
with MP2 server (converted from a SCO 5.0.6 version).
Before conversion file locks (over network) on this folder works well (eg
from server SCO 5.0.6 I was able to see locks generated from SCO 5.0.5 box
and viceversa), now with SCO 6.0.0 does not work !
I see that on SCO 6.0.0 the lockd daemon is active .. so it should work ...
Please can you help me ?

Has anyone yet come up with a solution on changing older SCO OpenServer
5.0.4 / 5.0.5 / 5.0.6 systems to accommodate the new daylight savings
dates starting this year??
I have looked around at SCO's site and they have an update to install
on 5.0.7 systems that also indicate you should install new libc, etc
Anyone know how to fix this on older SCO OpenServer releases??
Thanks for any help

Start with a clean install of 5.0.7 - don't try the upgrade option
during the IPL.
Upgrades didn't work very well until 5.0.5 came out.
We are pleased to announce a new beta of ACE-5.4.5, TAO-1.4.5 and
CIAO-0.4.5. This beta contains a number of time/space optimizations,
including POA/Skeleton refactoring and TypeCode reimplementation. It
also fixes a number of important bugs reported by our users, which we
greatly appreciate, as always.
As usual the latest release is available at:
The doxygen documentation for the beta will be updated in the next few
We encourage you to download the new beta, use it with your
applications, and let us know if you encount...In-Place Upgrade of SCO OpenServer 5.0.4 to 5.0.7
I will attempt this upgrade in a few days. Has anyone on this forum done this?
Any pitfalls? Any problems? I checked SCO's tech article data base and found

to 5.06 fails"), 112523 ("I upgraded from OpenServer 5.0.x to OpenServer 5.0.6

I don't think you are going to get a useful answer.
Let's assume that I could authoritatively say that 5.0.6 has
performance related improvements over .4 in certain areas. I can't
recall if it does or doesn't, bu...SCO 5.0.5/5.0.6 bios clock, time zone and synching
Does SCO expect the BIOS clock to be set to UTC?
Ive got a few SCO boxen spread across a couple of time zones and at
the moment, the bios clocks in the servers are set to localtime not
The timezone settings in SCO Admin are also wrong.
I was under the impression *nix always expects the BIOS clock to be
set to UTC and then the timezone settings in SCO tell the OS what the
local time is.
This does not seem to be the case for me.
On a testing box, Ive set the BIOS clock to UTC, set the correct
timezone in scoadmin but the date command in a root shell still gives
the wrong time.
