Licensing question 5.0.4 - 5.0.6 - 5.0.7 - SCO

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. This version of Sco is not certified compatible with our server. Does anyone know if we can install 5.0.7 licences on 5.0.6? Also it feels like the supplier is telling stories to force us into buying a new server. Does anyone know if 5.0.6 base packs are available? Thanks for your help Regards BB p.s. anonymity preserved to prevent Spam....

    No. But why would you want to?

    What do you mean by a "base pack"?

    Actually part of the confusion rests with SCO. Initially, SCO announced
    that OSR5.0.6 Upgrade Licenses would be withdrawn effective April 7,
    2003. I guess there was enough demand that they reinstated them on May 27,
    2003. I have sold both 5.0.6 media and upgrade licenses since. (The full
    5.0.6 licenses were not withdrawn, just the upgrades to 5.0.6.) I haven't
    seen a new retirement date for 5.0.6 upgrade licenses.
