Troubleshooting the installation

System not licensed or unregistered software

If you get the error System not licensed when logging in, or see messages about unregistered SCO OpenServer software:

  1. Switch to tty01 by pressing <Ctrl><Alt><F1>.

  2. Log in as root.

  3. Use the command scoadmin license manager (or scoadmin license) to run the License Manager as described in ``The License Manager interface''. Confirm that you have a valid license for each installed product by looking for the word Yes in the Licensed column.

  4. To stop the periodic messages about unregistered software, register your products as described in ``Registering products''. Confirm that a product is registered by looking for the word Yes in the Registered column.

  5. Check that your system date accurately reflects today's date by running the date(C) command with no arguments. If the date displayed is not today's date, reset the date with the date command, and reboot the system.

    NOTE: If the system clock was incorrect when you installed SCO OpenServer, you will need to remove your operating system license, fix the system time, then re-add the license. See ``SCO OpenServer license has expired'' for details.
