    SCO VisionFS Release 1.2

    SCO VisionFS(TM) is an easy-to-use file and print server for Windows clients. SCO VisionFS provides seamless connectivity between SCO OpenServer and Windows clients, using the Server Message Block (SMB) protocol.

    For the latest information on this release of SCO VisionFS, see the Release Notes file Release Notes.

    To install:

    Use the version of VisionFS on the OSR 5.0.4 CD only.

    4. When prompted, enter the SCO VisionFS license from the license certificate supplied in the SCO OpenServer product box.
    The server starts automatically without rebooting the system.


    1. After installation, use Windows help to access SCO VisionFS help files. These files provide information on configuration, troubleshooting, and licensing. To access the Release Notes from a Windows client, open the file README.vfs in the default VisionFS share.

    2. SCO VisionFS 1.2 automatically upgrades earlier versions of VisionFS. The existing configuration is saved and reused. You do not need to remove the earlier version.

    3. SCO VisionFS uses a NetBIOS that is not compatible with LAN Manager Client or Advanced File and Print Server. If Advanced File and Print Server is already installed, stop the server and the NetBIOS before installing VisionFS. From a UNIX command line, enter:

      net stop server
      netbios stop

    4. SCO VisionFS 1.2 installs only on SCO OpenServer Release 5.0.4 or later. Use uname -X to determine the SCO OpenServer release number.
