Introduction
This document presents very important information that you need to install SCO UNIX.
The first section of this document is a list of helpful tips on NOS installation, the second
section is a step-by-step installation guide.
NOTE: Hewlett-Packard has more than one Disk Array Controller (DAC) for the
NetServer product family. In this document the term "HP Disk Array" refers to
the EISA and PCI Disk Array Controller models C3609A and C3610A,
respectively. The term "HP NetRAID" refers to the HP NetRAID and NetRAID-
1 PCI Adapters models D4943A and D4992A, respectively. The term "HP
NetRAID 1Si refers to model number D2140A. The term "HP NetRAID 3Si"
refers to model number D5955A. The term "HP Embedded RAID" refers to the
built in RAID controller on the HP NetServer LH 3 and LH 4.
The HP NetServer E 30 does not support either DAC.
The HP NetServer E 40 , E 45 and E 50 support the HP NetRAID DACs only.
The HP NetServer E 60 only the HP NetRAID 1Si and HP NetRAID 3Si.
SCO MPX 3.0 does not work correctly on multiprocessor systems using the Intel
Pentium Pro, Pentium II or Pentium III processor (e.g. the NetServer LC II, LC 3,
LD Pro, LH Pro, LH II, LH 3, LH 4, LPr, LX Pro, LXe Pro, LXr Pro and LXr
8000).
SCO Open DeskTop 3.0, OpenServer 3.0, and MPX 3.0 are not supported on the
NetServer LC 3, LH 3, LH 4, LXr 8000, and LXr8500.
SCO OpenServer 5.0.x is supported on the NetServer E60, E 800 LPr, LC2000,
LC3, LH3, LH3000, LH4, LXr 8000 and LXr8500

    Be sure to leave enough space in your root file system for installing future applications. Remember that any application files that you place in your /u file system reduce the space left for user data files. A scratch division is an area that FSCK (file system check) uses to record data in case of a problem.

    BTLD Tips The HP NetServers use the BTLD for the internal SCSI controllers. The BTLD is a driver that can be link-edited into the UNIX system kernel during the booting process. The link-editing is done by boot (HW) after the driver is loaded into memory, but before the kernel is started.

    Any error that occurs when you first boot off the N1 diskette is a hardware problem. Either some piece of hardware is bad or there is a serious hardware configuration error. Fix this problem before trying to install SCO OpenServer. When booting off the N1 diskette, always use the link command to link the appropriate SCSI driver into the system (alad for the E 30, E 40, E 45, E 50, E 60, LC II, LC 3, LD, LH, LS, or LX;...

    The System Hangs without any Error Messages This is probably a SCSI bus problem. Check the SCSI setup for errors. Make sure all the SCSI devices are seen on boot up. One symptom of a SCSI bus termination error is that some devices are not seen on boot up.

    Booting from the Embedded SCSI Controller The system boots from the drive with the lowest SCSI address (0--zero) on the embedded SCSI host bus adapter. On the NetServer LD, LH and LS disk arrays, the upper middle drive slot has SCSI ID 0. On the NetServer LX, check the SCSI configuration label to see how your disk slots are numbered.

    NOTE: For OpenServer 5.0.0 you must type “ahslink” instead of “link”. OpenServer 5.0.2 (and later) use “link”. A. If your CD-ROM or tape, and boot disk are connected to the internal embedded SCSI controller on NetServer models that use either the alad or arad driver (see table earlier in this document), press Enter or type “restart”.
