About SCO OpenServer systems

Licensing SCO OpenServer products

The SCO OpenServer License is a contract that grants you rights to use SCO OpenServer software. SCO OpenServer and additional SCO OpenServer products (including increases for additional users and CPUs) must be licensed. You license the base operating system when you install it. Most additional SCO OpenServer products also prompt you for their license information during their installation process.

NOTE: For information on the additional products that are available for SCO OpenServer, see

Typically, you obtain SCO OpenServer product licenses from your SCO OpenServer software provider. The license information may be included in the media kit obtained from your software provider, or you may need to acquire the license from your software provider's web site.

The license agreement accompanies all SCO OpenServer products on the product media (typically in a directory named /info/license). Some SCO OpenServer products display the license agreement when you install the product, at which time you are prompted to read and accept the terms.

SCO OpenServer product licenses contain the following information:

License Number
A unique number identifying each SCO OpenServer product.

License Code
A license code which activates the product.

License Data
Additional license information needed to activate some products. If this field is not provided with your license, it is not required.
See ``Licensing and registering SCO OpenServer products'' for information on how to license your SCO OpenServer products using the License Manager.
