UOD426 Year 2000 patch on SCO5

Post by Neil Wrigh » Wed, 28 Oct 1998 04:00:00



I've erroneously applied the UOD426C year 2000 patch to a SCO 5.0.2 system.
This patch was designed for SCO 3.2v4.2 and others but not SCO 5.

What disastrous effects will this have?

Any replies will be appreciated.

Not a disaster, just total meltdown.  Take it out of service immediately
and restore from backups (hopefully) or a reinstall.  It might be
possible to reverse the changes but the time, trouble and chance for major
error isn't worth it.

I didn't think this was possible using custom/scoadmin.

Since it makes backups of everything it replaces, you may just be able
to remove it and that'd bring back your original binaries/libraries.
