Open. Server 6 - Firsts For the first time with any SCO OS Release, Open. Server 6 - Firsts For the first time with any SCO OS Release, Computer Systems from Hewlett-Packard and Intel were certified and available the day of Product Launch Fujitsu Siemens, IBM, Maxdata, and Toshiba followed on quickly with additional certifications SCO Staff wanted the Hardware products for Open. Server to be current with this release. We eliminated all ISA, EISA, and PS/2 Bus types from this release, and selectively grandfathered individual products in each category of hardware to Open. Server 6 4

New Channel Partner Hardware Certification Programs New Channel Partner Hardware Certification Programs

Channel Partner Certification Programs NEW Hardware Certification Programs for Channel Partners SCO distributors and Channel Partner Certification Programs NEW Hardware Certification Programs for Channel Partners SCO distributors and channel partners can now certify their white-box server solutions in the SCO Hardware Database. Two new programs are available to list computer servers under your company name, and model number, and list them as Certified, or compatible products with SCO Operating System Platforms. 8

Program Mechanics Providing a low-cost program for SCO channel Partners required: § Creating a Program Mechanics Providing a low-cost program for SCO channel Partners required: § Creating a computer system test suite for automated test results collection and model data gathering. This program can be downloaded at: http: //www. sco. com/developers/hdk/testsuites/ § This new test called the System Certification Tests (SCT) and is also available on the optional services CD of Open. Server 6 and must be used for both the SLP, and RCP channel partner programs. § This test suite replaces the older Platform Load Test previously used for OEM system testing. § Getting agreement from participating OEM partners to permit passthrough Certifications without retesting by the channel partner 9

Rebranding Certification Program (RCP) This program is available to SCO authorized Distributors and Channel Rebranding Certification Program (RCP) This program is available to SCO authorized Distributors and Channel Partners who are customers of major OEM suppliers of computer systems. The channel partner purchases computer system components and then assembles a "White Box" system using their own model name and model number. If a participating original OEM has Certified a specific Server Board, the channel partner can re-certify the same system without retesting - using this program. Intel Servers available for the RCT Program: http: //wdb 1. sco. com/hch_web/owa/hch_passthru_list_pkg. oem_list 10

Rebranding Certification Program (RCP) RCP Specifics Eligible Products Any computer system product manufactured by Rebranding Certification Program (RCP) RCP Specifics Eligible Products Any computer system product manufactured by Intel Corporation that has been Certified by Intel for any SCO platform, and Release, and is submitted by an SCO authorized channel partner is eligibile for rebranding. Submission and testing requirements § Model numbers submitted by the channel partner must be unique and can only describe one system. § The system board used for the certification can not be modified in any way from the original certified OSM platform. § The disk subsystem must be identical to the OEM certified product § BIOS changes from the original OEM Certified product are not permitted. Only BIOS revisions listed as certified in the original OEM certification are valid. § The microprocessor clock and speed must be the equal to or less than the OEM certified product. § The microprocessor must be from the same microprocessor family and the same type as the OEM certified product. § Any alterations to a submission from the original OEM certified model will be rejected. 11

Computer System Listing Program (SLP) This program is available to SCO authorized Distributors and Computer System Listing Program (SLP) This program is available to SCO authorized Distributors and Channel Partners who wish to list a computer system as "Compatible" in the SCO Hardware Database after testing the hardware for 24 hours. The channel partner assumes all support issues requested by their customers who purchased this system. 12

Computer System Listing Program (SLP) SLP Specifics: Eligible Products Any computer system product that Computer System Listing Program (SLP) SLP Specifics: Eligible Products Any computer system product that will install the target SCO Operating System platform and release and pass a twenty-four (24) hour stress test using the SCO System Certification Tests (SCT) will be permitted listed in the CHWP. System Listing requirements The definition of Compatible Hardware is: “Compatible Hardware” is hardware that is represented to work with the product based on driver availability, but has not been certified by either the OEM vendor or SCO. Any vendor or Channel Partner of SCO whose hardware is listed as compatible becomes the technical support contact point for any issue that may arise. § The product model name and number must be specific and unique and can only describe one (1) system. § The exception to this is a suffix may be added to the model name/number to describe more than one speed of a processor § The SCO Channel Partner has installed and tested for twenty-four 24 hours the SCO operating system platform on each system family and release of the operating system that the product will be marked as compatible in the CWHP. § The SCO Channel partner agrees to support any customer of the channel partner in a timely manner if a problem or issue is discovered after the computer system has been listed. 13

Certification § Whitebox Checklist § Full ISL is required for both programs § http: Certification § Whitebox Checklist § Full ISL is required for both programs § http: //www. sco. com/developers/hdk/testsuites/ § SLP Program: · Run System Certification Tests for 24 hours for SLP Program · Collect System Data · Enroll in SLP Program · When tests PASS, submit to SCO for publication § RCP Program: Install target OS and SCT · collect system data · Enroll in RCP Program · Submit collected files to SCO for publication § By running the above tests you can ensure a smooth OSR 6 deployment! 14

Certification § SCO Hardware Database (CHWP) http: //www. sco. com/chwp Fully searchable database of Certification § SCO Hardware Database (CHWP) http: //www. sco. com/chwp Fully searchable database of certified hardware on OSR 6 Good place to start when building a whitebox solution OSR 6 is SVR 5 so hardware certified on UW 7 has been selectively grandfathered § If hardware is not listed, remember to check the OEM’s website for a driver. § § 37

Device Certification § Drivers § http: //www. sco. com/support/download. html § BTLD’s are no Device Certification § Drivers § http: //www. sco. com/support/download. html § BTLD’s are no longer used, OSR 6 uses UW 7 style HBA diskettes and pkg format § Load HBA drivers during ISL via a floppy or ATAPI CDROM device § OEM vs. SCO supplied? § In general, use the SCO supplied driver as it has gone through the SCO certification process and has been extensively tested § Look at IHVVERSION package field to compare SCO vs. OEM driver 38
