OpenVMS VMS73_CPU2308-V0100 Alpha V7.3 CPU2308 ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_CPU2308-V0100 Alpha V7.3 CPU2308 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 CPU2308 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3.  This kit addresses
the following problems:

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_CPU2308-V0100 KIT

     o  When a  670  machine  check  (Processor  Uncorrectable  Error)
        occurs, a System Error Frame Subpacket is erroneously appended
        to the machine check frame in the error log file.

          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$CPU_ROUTINES_2308.EXE

     o  When a GS series system takes a 660 machine check crash, and a
        galaxy  remote machine check occurs when the node is rebooting
        from the 660 machine check, the more useful machine check dump
        is overwritten by the galaxy remote machine check dump.

          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$CPU_ROUTINES_2308.EXE



     o  Kernal Stack Not Valid Halt

          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$CPU_ROUTINES_2308.EXE


     o  After logging a DTAG error, the user may  see  recurring  DTAG
        hardware errors reported.

          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$CPU_ROUTINES_2308.EXE



INSTALLATION NOTES:

This kit requires a system reboot.  Compaq 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.

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 VMS73_CPU2308 /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

           -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT 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
        VMS73_CPU2308-V0100 kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_CPU2308/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
          $!
          $ exit
