Apply permanent 5.0.7 license to EVAL system - SCO

I need to apply my permanent 5.0.7 license to my OpenServer Enterprise system (without reinstalling!!!!!). Currently, it is running the 5.0.7 60-DAY EVAL license (with 15-days left). I just received my permanent 5.0.7 license from the reseller. The problem is that my new license is a Trade-In from my old 5.0.5 license (I bought the 60-Day EVAL 5.0.7 to ensure our application was compatible, before committing to the full price of the Trade-In license).

    Default Apply permanent 5.0.7 license to EVAL system


    I need to apply my permanent 5.0.7 license to my OpenServer Enterprise
    system (without reinstalling!!!!!). Currently, it is running the 5.0.7
    60-DAY EVAL license (with 15-days left). I just received my permanent
    5.0.7 license from the reseller. The problem is that my new license is
    a Trade-In from my old 5.0.5 license (I bought the 60-Day EVAL 5.0.7 to
    ensure our application was compatible, before committing to the full
    price of the Trade-In license).



    I believe the sequence of steps is:

    1) Boot to single-user

    2a) Remove the 5.0.7 EVAL license

    2b) Add the 5.0.5 Full license

    2c) Add the 5.0.7 Trade-In license

    3) run: /etc/sco_pmd

    4) Reboot (back to multi-user)



    The problem is that SCO WILL NOT confirm/deny this procedure without a
    support contract!!!!! Unbelieveable! They want me to pay for the
    instructions to apply the license I just bought from them (not cheap,
    by the way).



    My risk is that this is a production server, and if I *break* the
    license while attemping this, it will be a sad day indeed!



    -with thanks,

    Mike

    Why did it become a production server before being permanently
    licensed?

    That kind of procedure always worked for me with releases up to 5.0.6.
    It may or may not work on 5.0.7 -- I've not tried it.

    I'd go this route: run my savefiles script (at ftp.jpr.com), run a
    BackupEDGE or Lone-Tar Master Backup, re-install the OS. (I hope you do
    have more than the stand and root filesystems.)
