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? If so, how much?
2. How easy is the upgrade?
3. Should I go to 5.0.7 instead for all the machines?

Thanks,

Jon

Not hard; be sure to use ftp.jpr.com/pub/savefiles.

Yes, and when you order the upgrades, also add in SCO Update, which will
eventually bring you all the changes that bring you the Legend release.

Of course.

See http://aplawrence.com/scoprices.html

> 2. How easy is the upgrade?

Usually painless, but see http://aplawrence.com/Unixart/upgrades.html

> 3. Should I go to 5.0.7 instead for all the machines?
Yes, no question.

The upgrade from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 is still available. If 5.0.6 is working 
for you, you can bring the 5.0.5 up to 5.0.6 and put off the move to 5.0.7
until a later time. This is especially true if your systems are 5.0.6 host
and not Enterprise. (Hard to believe, I know, but I have two clients running
host systems for POS with no need for networking.)

Not hard to believe at all.

We still have dozens of clients running Host systems of all versions from 500 to
507 for POS applications.

And to the OP: Why upgrade to 507? Does it have functionality that you really
need? The only time we upgrade is when a PC is replaced with a new one. If it
ain't broke.....

What are the flaming hoops I need to jump through to upgrade
a 5.0.5 Host to 5.0.7 Enterprise?

I've tried to do some net research on my own on this and it's darn confusing
to a newbie to UNIX like myself. It looks like I have to first purchase and
upgrade to 5.0.6 or 5.0.7 Host and then I can get a trade-in upgrade 
to 5.0.7 Enterprise? WTF?

Thanks for any help!

Ian

Bitch at the Mozilla group (not that it will do any good).  It should
send anonymous as the default, not some silly thing like mozilla@ or
????????.

Does firefox have an Edit-->Preferences-->Advanced tab?

Yes it's confusing and yes I think you've worked it out.

First u/g 505 to 507 Host.
Then Host to Enterprise.
Then additional users.

Expensive, and messy, and the pricelists are confusing. Let your dealer sort it
out....

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.

SCSI tape not working after upgrade 5.0.5 -> 5.0.7
Good day, After an upgrade of SCO OpenServer 5.0.5 running on Dell PowerEdge 2400 to 5.0.7 we found the tape drive does not work.

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.

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.

Frank, OpenServer 5.0.5 is a retired product and is no longer generally supported by SCO. OpenServer 5.0.5 is not designed to work on P4 systems and y...

if time = 3 seconds, how do i set the values of the time steps 0,0.1,0.2,0.3,0.5,1.0,1.5,2.0,3.0,5.0 to -9999 from time =3 seconds
Hi &nbsp; I have 18 inputs (arrays) which contain certain statistics and if time&nbsp;&nbsp;= 3 seconds, set the values of time step 5.0 to -9999.0. &nbsp; I was wondering if there is an efficient way to do this without using a lot of case statements? &nbsp; Thank you. Hello AdrianT, it's not really clear to me what you want to do... I suspect: you have an array containing values and you want to output them with a fixed timing of 3 seconds: you should use a for loop autoindexing trough your array and sending the value to your indicator/output/whatever. Put a "wait for next multiple" into your for loop. Or do you want to have a minimum time delay of 3 seconds? Again use a for loop, get the time value and use a InRange&amp;Coerce with minimum set to 3 seconds... Or you should explain more precisely what you need... Hi Thanks for that. Let me explain. &nbsp; The time may vary. Let me give an example. if time&nbsp; = 2.1, I want to set the time step's &nbsp;3.0 and 5.0's values to -9999.0. if the time =0.1 seconds then I want to set 0.2,0.3, 0.5 etc values to -9999.0 etc .................................................................... &nbsp; Can you please help? Thank you. Hello TUDS, do you use different accounts/nicknames ? Well, that's easy, at least for a sorted array: Search for your time-value in the array (Threshold 1D array). Fill all elements from that index till the end with your "error...

Should I fear an upgrade from 5.0 to.. 5.1 or 5.5 on a CentOS box?
I've just been handed a CentOS 5.1 , WHM/Cpanel server to maintain, it's running MySQL 5.0 which powers a few Forum/CMS type sites.. I really need to upgrade MySQL, because until I do, WHM/CPanel upgrades aren't possible.. How scary is this? Likelyhood of scripts like SMF, Wordpress etc breaking? How much time involved? Minutes, hours days? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

[ace-users] ACE+TAO+CIAO
Hi all, We are pleased to announce the latest ACE+TAO+CIAO beta. This beta has been tagged ACE+TAO+CIAO-5_5_6. The main difference between this release and x.5.5 is that the ACE exception macros (except for ACE_THROW_RETURN and ACE_THROW_SPEC) have been removed from all TAO and CIAO code. It is available from the same download location as per the previous release. http://download.dre.vanderbilt.edu/ The doxygen documentation for the beta is also available. Included with this beta, besides the packages combined of sources and generate makefiles, we also provide source only packages for the group of users which use MPC to generate their own makefiles. We encourage you to download the new beta, use it with your applications, and let us know if you encounter any problems. Please use the: $ACE_ROOT/PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM $TAO_ROOT/PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM $CIAO_ROOT/PROBLEM-REPORT-FORM so that we have the proper version/platform/compiler/options you're using to report problems. We also request that you take a look at: $TAO_ROOT/docs/releasenotes/ for the status of various ongoing projects at the DOC groups of WashU, UCI, and Vanderbilt to move ACE+TAO+CIAO forward. Overviews of our recent progress and upcoming plans are available at: $ACE_ROOT/NEWS $TAO_ROOT/NEWS $CIAO_ROOT/NEWS The overall success rates for the test results gathered from all our daily builds is 96% for the ACE tests and 92% for the TAO tests.

SCO Open Server 5.0.6 versus 5.0.4
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. 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. If that's what you are lookimg for (a reason to sell the idea to ...

Free Dev Sys License (5.0.4 or 5.0.5)
Anybody need a Free(*) Openserver devsys license? It's from around the time of 5.0.4 or 5.0.5. But it should work up through 5.0.6, (by serializing ld and cc manually - those are the only two items that the license unlocks). Number: 2GA026600 Code: nxljpcpn Data: g0;k;mddh5m7 The license is not in use and is legit. Or as legit as can be after posting the activation info to Usenet.
