OpenVMS VMS731_CPU2308-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 CPU2308 ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_CPU2308-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 CPU2308 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 CPU2308 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1. This kit addresses the
NEW FUNCTIONALITY ADDRESSED IN VMS731_CPU2308-V0100 KIT
o Enable the DTAG2 ECC functionality. The additional hardware
support in V7.3-1 enables ECC single-bit error interrupts and
then properly logs any DTAG2 single-bit errors in the errorlog
file. Prior OpenVMS releases (V7.2-1H1, V7.2-2, V7.3) never
enable this functionality. The result is that the operating
system is never notified by the hardware that a single-bit
DTAG2 error has been detected and corrected by hardware.
This kit requires a system reboot. Compaq strongly recommends that
a reboot is performed immediately after kit installation to avoid
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.
Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the
