OpenVMS VMS73_APB-V0100 Alpha V7.3 APB/BOOT ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_APB-V0100 Alpha V7.3 APB/BOOT ECO Summary

New Kit Date:       09-JAN-2002
Modification Date:  Not Applicable
Modification Type:  New Kit
 
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, then it can
       be expanded by typing RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe.  The resultant
       file will be the PCSI installation file which can be used to install
       the ECO.

  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=V3.0

       -  De-assign the logicals assigned

     For  example,  a  sample   command   file   to   install   the
     VMS73_APB-V0100 kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_APB/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
