You can do an inplace upgrade from 5.0.2 to 5.0.6 using your existing license. I have the media available for download. Trying this should eliminate any hardware/firmware issues.

that is in this case normal.
first you have to enter the single user mode.

On startup when the String "Boot" appears, press enter
The system will ask you after the splash screen for the root password.

then you can set the date and reboot
for example:
date -t 1508081210
init 6

after the system comes up again, you can login in the multi-user mode.
use date-t to reenter the right date


today our system showed a message:
The Licensing Policy Manager Daemon (ifor_pmd) has terminated and been restarted. ...

after that some applications does not work anymore. i had to restart the server with the date in the past.


then i tryed, in single user mode, to re-check the licence.
i startet scoadmin and went to the licence manager. With the actual date, i got an error, the licence manager does not start. after changing the date to the past it was possible to start the licence manager.

could this be a licence problem? any ideas?

Hi guys, I'd really appreciate your help. After the weekend our sco openserver release 5 is not working. I cant even log in to the terminal in multiuser mode.
First of all, I get the following error: /etc/getty tty03 sc_m (date here), PID XXX:
Cannot fork to run /tcb/lib/initcond: Resource temporarily unavailable (error 11)
At the login prompt i get:
login: root
LOGIN: could not fork user's shell: Resource temporarily unavailable (error 11)

This happens in every tty I open.
Please guys any idea?

@gallok, are you also using 5.0.2a.

@chipperEs,

You have left off the century. Is that a typo in your post, or is that how you enter the date?
You can use 'exit' in place of 'init 6', and the boot/startup routine returns to the 'enter root password or <ctrl>d' point of the normal start up.
There are no SCO operating systems prior to 5.0.6 with RS506a applied that are Y2K compliant.
It seems to me that there may be something along the lines of the following as a temporary measure.

Code:
if yy < 16
     yyyy=2000+yy
else
     yyyy=1900+yy
endif

Thus giving you 15 years to upgrade. Although why this expires in August and not Dec 31 is beyond me.
