Sco OpenServer upgrading 5.0.6 to 5.0.7

I need some help.
I need to upgrade my Sco O.S.506 to 507 and told me that I need to reinstall
all the operative system and not the upgrading of it.
Is it true ?
Thanks in advance and excuse me if before someone alredy answered this query
but I do not find anything about this matter

bye

No.

While In-Place Upgrades do now work considerably better than they did a
few years ago, I *still* counsel against them.

Use my savefiles script, make good backups, and then a fresh install.

Not true, but still can be what you should do.

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.

NFS SCo 5.0.5 with SCO 6.0.0
Hi everybody, 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 ? Thanks Cuffiette ...

Upgrading 5.0.5 to 5.0.6/5.0.7
Hi, 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 questions: 1. Does SCO charge for this upgrade?

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 articles 11293 ("An in-place upgrade from OpenServer 5.0.4 to 5.0.5 and then on to 5.06 fails"), 112523 ("I upgraded from OpenServer 5.0.x to OpenServer 5.0.6 and my files from /usr/local are missing"), 105664 ("The Internet FastStart package did not install after an in-place upgrade to OpenServer Enterprise Release 5.0.4 or 5.0.5"), and 11542 ("I get kernel relink errors when trying to install Merge 5 on SCO OpenServer 5").

SCO OpenServe 6.0.0 Filesystem MUCH Faster Than 5.0.6
The speed of the SCO OpenServer 6.0.0 filesystem is quite noticeably faster than I enjoyed on OpenServer 5.0.6. How do I know? I donno, but it feels and seems so. I didn't expect this, so I didn't make these tests while still on 5.0.6, but I KNOW I have a lot more files and directories on 6.0.0 than I did on 5.0.6. The Verify of my Last Master Backup shows what is on my systen: 255191 files were encountered 167 files were excluded 9 files were not checked because the hard disk file had been modified by a program since it was backed up 2 files were not checked for various reasons 28870 special files (links, directories, devices, etc.) 226143 files verified successfully Master Backups using LONE-TAR(tm) to DVD+RW media ran at about 70-75 MB/min on OSR 5.0.6 but run at 175+ MB/min on 6.0.0, and if I turn off compression run at 260+ MB/min.

SCO 5.0.5/5.0.6 bios clock, time zone and synching
Hi All, 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 UTC. 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. Either the timezone information in scoadmin for my timezone is wrong and I need to set up an unlisted timezone (which I can do easily enough) or im missing something more fundamental here.

Licensing question 5.0.4 - 5.0.6

SCO Open Server 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4

Regards, Marian news wrote: > Hi, > Anybody can point me to info or can state if there is a performance > improvement from running 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4. Application is database access > centered. 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, but the release notes would surely mention any. But so what? What does that say about YOUR application? Do we know where its performance issuees are now? Nope. We could assume it's probably disk bound, because that's a pretty safe assumption most any time, but even if true, what have you done for better or worse in that regard already? Maybe this is an Oracle database and you have it running on a RAID 5 system. As that's usually going to be a bad idea, you could gain nothing even if 5.0.6 did otherwise provide features that would otherwise improve your lot. Maybe you have the whole thing improperly tuned. Maybe you have it so perfectly tuned that an upgrade would make it worse because everything is so critically balanced to what you have now.. There are plenty of good reasons to upgrade to 5.0.6/7.

The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "jpogo". This user must also own the server process. The database cluster will be initialized with locale C_C.C. Please let me know if you have any ideas of how fix this. Thanks, Jeff. jrpogo @ yahoo . com ...

SATA on 5.0.6 or 5.0.7?
Anyone running SCO 5.0.6 or 5.0.7 on servers with SATA drives? I'd like to hear from anyone with SATA based servers and if they met their exceptions for performance and reliability. In the past, I have always used SCSI drives for the performance and customary 5 year warrantee. Now SATA drives are available with 5 year warrantee and manufactures claim the drives are equivalent to SCSI performance at 40% less cost. I have checked my distributors and all the SATA drives I can find are 7200 RPM with the exception of the 36G WD360GD 10k RPM SATA drive. I have a request from a client running SCO 3.2v4.2 on 66 MHz 486 with 4G disk to upgrade to current hardware and OS. SCSI is overkill for this client and the 36G WD looks like a good choice. I'll eliminate all SCSI by using Backup Edge writing to a ATAPI DVD-RAM and upgrade the client to 5.0.6 or 5.0.7 (SCO's web site suggests it has upgrades to Enterprise 6.0 from Xenix/UNIX but there is no part number listed and inquiries come up: Not Available). -- Steve Fabac S.M. Fabac & Associates 816/765-1670 I have switched over most of my small server installs over to SATA raid using the intel SRCS16 raid controller and the 10K 36 gig raptor drives. So far other then one of the cables breaking off the connector during shipping, I have not had any probelms. On the smaller system running aro...

SCO Openserver 5.0.5 information
Hi guys, Before i start i have a confession to make. I have never used UNIX before! So this is something very tough and foreign to me. Q1: In my office there are a couple of computers running SCO Openserver 5.0.5 (and yes, it's very old). I would like to study is there any way to install 5.0.5 on a IBM based PC? Meaning those PCs which we assemble ourselves. Q2: I noticed SCO uses a host adapter and SCSI hard disk. Can i use the normal ATA IDE cable hard drive? Q3: If the first 2 questions' answer are yes, then where can i find the graphics and network card driver? or at least where can i check whether or not my graphics and network card are supported? Q4: Where can i find information on SCO Openserver 5.0.5? A million thanks.

OpenServer 5.0.5 will install on Intel and AMD 32 bit systems assuming the hardware is compatible and supported by the OS. You will need a license to do the install. > Q2: > I noticed SCO uses a host adapter and SCSI hard disk. Can i use the > normal ATA IDE cable hard drive? OpenServer 5.0.5 support for IDE drives is limited and you may have issues with large IDE drives and recognition of the fully capactiy of the drives. > Q3: > If the first 2 quest...

Upgrade from 5.0.7 to 6.0
I need to upgrade a system from Open Server 5.0.7 to 6.0. All of the customer's data is in /u which currently is not a separately mounted file system. Will the upgrade to 6.0 delete or otherwise adversely affect the data in the /u directory? If the upgrade will affect the data in /u, will making /u a separately mounted file system protect the data?

I have a whole lot of printers attached to ttys(specialix multi serial ports) on SCO 5.0.6, I am setting up a new server with 5.0.7 is there an easy way to move the printers configurations from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7 e,g Can I just copy /usr/spool/lp/*/lp from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7, would that make all my printers appear in 5.0.7 Many thanks denn.el@gmail.com typed (on Mon, May 21, 2007 at 06:39:27AM -0700): | I have a whole lot of printers attached to ttys(specialix multi serial | ports) on SCO 5.0.6, I am setting up a new server with 5.0.7 is there | an easy way to move the printers configurations from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7 | e,g Can I just copy /usr/spool/lp/*/lp from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7, would that | make all my printers appear in 5.0.7 I think I've done exactly that... -- JP ==> http://www.frappr.com/cusm <== On May 21, 5:54 pm, Jean-Pierre Radley <j...@jpr.com> wrote: > denn...@gmail.com typed (on Mon, May 21, 2007 at 06:39:27AM -0700): > | I have a whole lot of printers attached to ttys(specialix multi serial > | ports) on SCO 5.0.6, I am setting up a new server with 5.0.7 is there > | an easy way to move the printers configurations from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7 > | e,g Can I just copy /usr/spool/lp/*/lp from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7, would that > | make all my printers appear in 5.0.7 > > I think I've done exactly that... > > -- > JP > ==>http://www.frappr.com/cusm<== thanks ...

New drives added to RAID 5 (Netfinity 5500) not recognize under SCO Openserver 5.0.5.
Hi all, I never done this before but I think I'm on the right way. I have a Netfinity 5500 here running SCO openserver 5.0.5. This system run one RAID 5 array of three disks. I have add 3 more disks to this array using ipsadm(logical drive migration option-Add physical drive(s)). 2 disks have been assign "ONL" to the actual array and the other disk has been declared as "HSP"(Hot SwaP Disk). Even if it's a very long process, all step seems to go well. My problem is that before AND after "expanding" the array the SCO df -v command show me the same result. So there must be an other step to do(probably under sco) but I don't know what to do. I only have /dev/root and /dev/boot as filesystems so I tought that /dev/root would expand automaticaly but it's not the case. So I have more space in the array and SCO don't see it. Can you tell me what step I should do now ? Like I told you, it's the first time I do something like this so please be as clear as possible. A step by step explanation would be really appreciate. Thank you!
