Using same SCO Openserver Enterprise 5.0.5. on 2 computers - SCO

Can I use the same SCO Openserver licence on two computers on the same network. I want to have a computer who is simply a clone of the other so I want to put the second computer on the network and make FTP transfert between the two computers. So if my "main" computer go down I can simply switch on the other computer. Thank you!...

    You'll get a repeated stream of console warnings from one or both machines
    that
    the same licenses are present on another machine on the network. These
    warnings will also be written to /usr/adm/syslog .

    Is this the only thing ? Is the syslog will be fill of those repeated
    messages or messages will appear once a day or something like that ?
    Is there any way to avoid those messages ? I've also heard that SCO
    can "stop running". Is there any "danger" ? Is there any lost of any
    functionnality ?

    Thanks!

    If the 2nd machine is merely a clone of the first, he could cron a
    daily/weekly script on the clone to bring up the network interface,
    perform the ftp transfer, then bring down the interface. This way,
    the warnings would only occur for a brief period, and even then only
    if the SCO broadcasts happen to occur during the FTP session.
