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....
