Moved SCO 5.0.7 from VMware Server to ESXi. No network connectivity
This is just an in-house exercise, not a mission critical thing.
I created a 5.0.7 server using VMware a year or so back. I migrated it
to a newly installed ESXi server. I can get the 5.0.7 system to boot
and all appears to be OK, except it is unable to reach outside on the
network. It was configured with the "pnt" driver. I've tried forcing
it to the "eeG" (e1000 in ESX), and that also doesn't work. The system
seems to recognize the virtual adapter (as tested using the "hw pci"
Any ideas out there?
I'm pretty green on the VM stuff.

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 ?
...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?

How do a setup a printer that is on my local network with IP 192.168.2.17 ?
The Unix server is on 192.168.2.7 on the same network.
I tried "scoadmin" looking for something like "add tcp/ip printer" but no
luck at all. So I'm thinking that I have to create a new port (i.e.
/dev/lp192.168.2.17) so then I can assign a printer to it right ?
Any help would be greatly appreciate it.

I had a SCO box with 1 card ( 3COM 905B ) installed with IP 10.0.1.30/24 and
everything was OK. I installed second card ( the same type - 3COM 905B) and
configured IP as 192.168.1.1/24. After kernel relink and boot I can not ping
any machine in 192.168.1.0/24 network. I checked all physical connections,
routing, etc. Strange thing is that I noticed, that both network interfaces
have the same MAC address. If I run ifconfig -a, I see:

I see SCO has a downloadable 5.0.7 virtual machine in ISO form they
boast will run on vmware, but the getting-started docs don't mention
using vmware server 2.0 (the free version). Has anyone got this to
work and if so how did you do it?
It seems silly they don't document using it with the most popular
versions of vmware. But it is SCO. And that yearly subscription? What
were they thinking? That sure gives a lot of confidence--buying
something that will quit on a yearly basis from a company that is
going through bankruptcy.

I have 2 different software applications.
We are considering moving both to a single server sunning sco.
One vendor says they will only run on SCO caldera v 3.2.2.07
the other says they will only run on enterprise 5.0.7 3.2v5.0.7
I am confused, are these 2 different os's or just versions of the same os.
Can someone enlighten me?

We are running SCO Openserver 5.0.7 w/ mmdf to forward email to external
users, using a printer driver which sends to the user defined in the alias
list, or should. (i.e. user jwhite sends a print job to printer "email",
which routes the message to mmdf, which then sends to email@example.com
All is well, except for a bit of a delay in the sending. However, if
the email address username has more than 8 chars. in it (i.e.
firstname.lastname@example.org), and the SCO user is jthompso, mmdf tries to send to
email@example.com and of course it bounces. We also have .forward files...rsync server on SCO 5.0.,7

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.
