OpenVMS VMS731_CLUSTER-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 CLUSTER ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_CLUSTER-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 CLUSTER ECO Summary
 
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
 
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
 
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
       kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
       RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe.  The
       resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
       used to install the ECO.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:

An ECO kit exists for CLUSTER on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1.  This kit addresses the 
following problems: 

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS731_CLUSTER-V0100 KIT
        
     o  Since V7.2, a MSCP_SERVE_ALL value of 4 has not worked
        correctly.  It is supposed to serve only the system disk, but
        it does not serve any disks.  All other values of
        MSCP_SERVE_ALL work correctly.
        
        This change insures that you can MSCP serve *just* the system
        disk, as is documented with MSCP_SERVE_ALL = 4.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]STACONFIG.EXE
                          [SYSEXE]CONFIGURE.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  When updating from OpenVMS V7.3R to V7.3-1R it is possible for
        the LANACP process to get an ACCVIO followed by a PROCGONE
        bugcheck as the LANACP process attempts to terminate and run
        down.  This will cause the upgrade procedure to terminate
        prematurely during the reboot.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]STACONFIG.EXE
                          [MANAGE]VMS$INITIAL-050_CONFIGURE.COM
 
 
 
 
        
     o  If an SCS data-transfer SCS$MAP request encounters an SCS
        port-specific mapping resource exhaustion ("stall"), the
        system will crash upon attempt to resume the SCS map
        data-transfer setup operation, when such resources become
        available and the stalled operation restarts.
        
        While many VMS SCS port drivers use port-specific SCS mapping
        resources (S/G-maps, CRCTX$, etc.), only SYS$PADRIVER for the
        SHAC-DSSI-chip/KFESA has an unusually small quantity of SCS
        mapping resources (128 CI buffer descriptors, to be exact).
        It is therefore most likely to encounter this failure.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$SCS.EXE
 
 


INSTALLATION NOTES:

This kit requires a system reboot.  HP strongly recommends that
a  reboot  is performed immediately after kit installation to avoid
system instability

If you have other nodes in your OpenVMS cluster, they must also  be
rebooted  in  order  to make use of the new image(s).  If it is not
possible or convenient to reboot the entire cluster at this time, a
rolling re-boot may be performed.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the
DCL prompt:

PRODUCT INSTALL VMS731_CLUSTER /SOURCE=[location of Kit]

The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that
contains the kit.

Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing
HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt

Special Installation Instructions:

     o  Scripting of Answers to Installation Questions

        During installation, this kit will ask and require user
        response to several questions.  If you wish to automate the
        installation of this kit and avoid having to provide responses
        to these questions, you must create a DCL command procedure
        that includes the following definitions and commands:

           -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE

           -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE

           -  Add the following qualifiers to the PRODUCT INSTALL
              command and add that command to the DCL procedure.

                /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0


           -  De-assign the logicals assigned

        For example, a sample command file to install the
        VMS731_CLUSTER kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS731_CLUSTER/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
          $!
          $ exit
