OpenVMS VMS731_DEBUG-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 DEBUG ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_DEBUG-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 DEBUG 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.

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:

  RODUCT INSTALL VMS731_DEBUG /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  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_DEBUG-V0100 kit would be:

        $
        $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
        $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
        $!
        $ PROD INSTALL VMS731_DEBUG/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
        $!
        $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
        $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
        $!
        $ exit
