no, ultrix supports SMP from version 4 onward, on both MIPS and VAX.
Though, i have heard it is not very good at it.. A friend of mine when i
was in school told me about an 8000 series VAX that had been taken
offline a couple years before i got there (to be replaced by a bunch of
pmaxen and then sparc 20s), which ran ultrix, which they ran in sngle
processor mode after they discovered it was actually faster than running on
both processors... so, ymmv. but yes, ultrix does do SMP.
