OpenVMS VMS731_RPC-V0100 RPC ALPHA 7.3-1 ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS731_RPC-V0100 RPC ALPHA 7.3-1 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.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:
An ECO kit exists for RPC on Alpha V7.3-1. This kit addresses the following
PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS731_RPC-V0100 KIT
o The DCE$DCED process aborts with SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO when a
command procedure containing dce_login and ACMSxp commands is
executed in an infinite loop.
o DCE V3.0 RPC Only configuration fails on systems with TCPWARE
as the IP product. The configuration program terminates
o There was a case where a NULL pointer check was not being made
in RPC Runtime code. The new image takes care of this
o DCE client example programs, located at
[SYSHLP.EXAMPLES.DCE.RPC], generated using the IDL -trace
log_manager option, access violate. The access violation
occurs when the symbol RPC_LOG_FILE is defined.
%SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO, access violation, reason mask=00, virtual
address=000000000000 0000, PC=0000000000239F68, PS=0000001B
o DCE V3.0 Client Configuration fails with the below error
*** FATAL ERROR at SOCKDNETIV.C;14946 ***
%SYSTEM-F-OPCCUS, opcode reserved to customer
fault at PC=FFFFFFFF80A5E7F4,PS=0000001B
o While configuring the DCE as a client, the dce$cdsadver
process goes into the hang state, leading to the configuration
o The application process reports "FATAL rpc recv CNRCVR.C;1"
leading to an hang situation. The applications were to
o A "FATAL rpc cn_state CNSCLSM.C an Illegal state transition
detected in CN server call state machine" error has been
reported in the DCE application. The message does not display
the correct state and event of the state machine.
o The thread responsible for the ticket refresh operation waits
forever to unlock a mutex, leading to expiration of the self
o For each client request of the DCOM application, one persona
is left out after the client completion. After running for
several hours the personas accumulate and the DCOM$RPCSS
process aborts with the RMS fatal error.
No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.
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_RPC /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
- Add the following qualifiers to the PRODUCT INSTALL
command and add that command to the DCL procedure.
- De-assign the logicals assigned
For example, a sample command file to install the
VMS731_RPC-V0100 kit would be:
$ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
$ PROD INSTALL VMS731_RPC/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
$ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
