I don't know where the messages may have gone. The problem is that if the
date is within march or april then the installation fails. This is due to a
mismatch of components supplied in the installation kit and (contrary to what
you might think) is not y2k related. The problem is corrected in 12.0 esd 2
distributions. However the pre-esd2 server can still be successfully
installed if the system date is changed. After installation the date can be
changed back as the problem does not affect the running of ASE, only the
installation tool.

hope this helps,
