FYI: Updates On SCO Updates

FYI: Updates On SCO Updates

Post by Dave Richard » Wed, 24 Jun 1998 04:00:00



Here is some information that might help you:

ICQ For Java does not run correctly with the JDK 1.1.3, and I had to
roll back to 1.1.1.

Netscape 4.0.5 that SCO just released is far more buggy than 4.0.4 and
we had to roll back.  It
seems to have a * 'streams leak' and consumes a lot more resources.

1. Recent Updates Related to Backup FYI

        bos.obj 3.2.0.0.U405871
IX27086 RDUMP WITH -B 100 LOSES 2/3 OF DATA.

 The restore command front end is unable to decipher the type
 of backup if the media is in "by inode" format.

        bos.obj 3.2.0.0.U405865
IX22214 SEMOP ERROR WAS GONE AFTER APPLIED APAR FIX IX17763, BUT A N

 backbyinode gives error "msgrcv: invalid argument".

IX24490 rdump/backup give "rewinding" message for norewind rmt device

 The backup by inode and rdump commands issue the "Tape
 rewinding" message even with tape devices that don't
 rewind on close.

IX27083 TAPE DEVICE SPEC SYNTAX FOR RDUMP.

 The unix 'dump' utility with which most of us are familiar

 remote tape device.  This is an important security feature in
 the following case:  the filesystem to be dumped resides on a
 host whose root password is known to individuals who should not
 have root access on the host which has the tape drive.  Since
 the 'rdump' must be run under the root or system user, and
 since the 'rdump' user must have '.rhost' privilege on the host
 which has the tape drive, security of the latter system is

 problem by allowing the 'rmt' process on the tape drive host to
 be run under a different uid.
 to be run under a different uid.

IX28487 Unresolved reference during bind of restore

 rrestore and restbyinode needed updates to define a user.
