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: 

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.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  DCE V3.0 RPC Only configuration fails on systems with TCPWARE
        as the IP product.  The configuration program terminates
        abnormally.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSMGR]DCE$RPC_STARTUP.COM
 
 
 
 
        
     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
        problem.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     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
        
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  DCE V3.0 Client Configuration fails with the below error
        (socket) post_net_channel_qio
        
        *** FATAL ERROR at SOCKDNETIV.C;14946 ***
        %SYSTEM-F-OPCCUS, opcode reserved to customer
        fault at PC=FFFFFFFF80A5E7F4,PS=0000001B
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$SOCKSHR_DNET_IV.EXE
                          [SYSLIB]DCE$SOCKSHR_DNET_OSI.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  While configuring the DCE as a client, the dce$cdsadver
        process goes into the hang state, leading to the configuration
        hang.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$SOCKSHR_IP.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  The application process reports "FATAL rpc recv CNRCVR.C;1"
        leading to an hang situation.  The applications were to
        restart.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     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.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     o  The thread responsible for the ticket refresh operation waits
        forever to unlock a mutex, leading to expiration of the self
        credentials.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 
        
     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.
        
 
          Images Affected:[SYSLIB]DCE$LIB_SHR.EXE
 
 
 
 


INSTALLATION NOTES:

No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.

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:  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.

                /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0


           -  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
          $ exit
