OpenVMS VMS731_MANAGE-V0100 Alpha V7.3-1 ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_MANAGE-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.

     remedial kit.   (Reference  attached  Disclaimer  of  Warranty  and
     Limitation of Liability Statement)


     2.2  Reboot Requirement:

     Reboot Required.  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.

6  PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN THIS KIT

     6.1  New problems addressed in the VMS731_MANAGE-V0100 kit

          6.1.1  System  hangs  on  boot  if  page/swap  file  disk   is
                 unavailable

               6.1.1.1  Problem Description:

               SYS$MANAGER:CLUSTER_CONFIG.COM and
               SYS$MANAGER:CLUSTER_CONFIG_LAN.COM create a command
               procedure called SYS$SPECIFIC:[SYSEXE]SATELLITE_PAGE.COM.
               This procedure mounts the page/swap file disk and then
               installs the page and swap file.  The problem is that the
               SATELLITE_PAGE.COM procedure loops until the specified
               disk becomes available.  If the specified disk is not
               available, the system hangs and never completes the boot.
               The user will see the following message:

               * Waiting for page/swap device:  *


               Images Affected:

                -  [SYSMGR]CLUSTER_CONFIG.COM

                -  [SYSMGR]CLUSTER_CONFIG_LAN.COM



               

          6.1.2  Account loses default privileges after invoking SYSMAN

               6.1.2.1  Problem Description:

               If an account has default privileges that are not
               authorized privileges, those default privileges are
               stripped from the process after running the SYSMAN
               utility.  The lost privileges cannot be restored with a
               "SET PROCESS/PRIV=ALL" command if the account does not
               have SETPRV privilege.

               Images Affected:

                -  [SYSEXE]SYSMAN.EXE





               
          6.1.3  Duplicate entries in  SYS$DEVICES.DAT  for  Fibre  tape
                 devices

               6.1.3.1  Problem Description:

               Duplicate entries can occur in SYS$DEVICES.DAT for Fibre
               tape devices whose worldwide identifiers (WWIDs) contain
               lowercase ASCII characters.

               Images Affected:

                -  [SYSLIB]SMI$OBJSHR.EXE


               
          6.1.4  Stale Fibre Channel tape name logicals not deleted

               6.1.4.1  Problem Description:

               Fibre Channel tape names are recorded in clusterwide
               logical name definitions.  When the SYSMAN IO
               REPLACE_WWID command is used to replace one tape drive
               with another, the previous logical names are deleted and
               new logicals are created.  The old logical names were not
               being completely deleted.

               Images Affected:

                -  [SYSLIB]SMI$OBJSHR.EXE


               
          6.1.5  PROCGONE bugcheck during upgrade from V7.3 to V7.3-1


               6.1.5.1  Problem Description:

               When updating from OpenVMS V7.3 to V7.3-1, 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.

          6.1.10  SYSGEN parameter LGI_CALLOUTS set to 0 at startup

               6.1.10.1  Problem Description:

               At system boot time, if the SYSGEN parameter LGI_CALLOUTS
               is set to anything other than 0, STARTUP.COM will set it
               to 0.  This prevents those systems that use this
               functionality from being able to do so.

               6.1.11.1  Problem Description:

               If APB.EXE is not contiguous the system may fail to boot.
               This change causes the REBOOT_CHECK option in
               SHUTDOWN.COM to verify that APB.EXE is contiguous.

                  when not using SYSTEM account

               6.1.12.1  Problem Description:

               Clusterwide Fibre Channel tape naming functions such as
               SYSMAN IO FIND_WWID, REPLACE_WWID and AUTOCONFIGURE
               return NOMSG errors, or other failures from remote nodes,
               when not using the SYSTEM account as the validation
               account on those remote nodes.

     7.2  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$BACKUP 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_MANAGE-V0100 kit would be:

     $
     $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
     $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
     $!
     $ PROD INSTALL VMS731_MANAGE/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
     $!
     $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
     $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
     $!
     $ exit
