OpenVMS VMS731_DISMOU-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_DISMOU-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 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.

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN THIS KIT
New problems addressed in the VMS731_DISMOU-V0100 kit
A change made for OpenVMS V7.3-1 to delete write bitmaps
when a virtual unit is dismounted. The purpose of the
change was to return memory to the system. However, some
customers depend on the master bitmap remaining, even if
the virtual unit is dimounted.
Since customers who wish to have the bitmaps deleted can
manually delete them, this change removes the code that
deletes the bitmap and reverts functionality to the
pre-V7.3-1 state. Customers that want to delete any
unwanted bitmaps can do so via SHOW BITMAP and DELETE
BITMAP commands. These commands have been part of
OpenVMS since V7.2-2.
Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the

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
