OpenVMS VMS73_DCL-V0200 Alpha V7.3 DCL ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_DCL-V0200 Alpha V7.3 DCL ECO Summary
New Kit Date:       14-MAR-2002
Modification Date:  10-APR-2002
Modification Type:  Fixed a typo in VMS73_DCL-V0100 kit's Problem 

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.

     Kit Dependencies:

       The following remedial kit(s), or later, must be installed BEFORE
       installation of this, or any required kit:

       In order to receive all the corrections listed in this
       kit, the following remedial kits, or later, should also be installed:



An ECO kit exists for DCL on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3. 
This kit addresses the following problems: 


  o  When the DCL PIPE command is issued in batch  mode,  it  skips
     over the DCL statement immediately following the PIPE command.
     This occurs when the ";" separator is followed  by  a  command
     sequence containing an "@filespec" command.

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE

  o  Running the pipe command in a loop may result in  one  of  the
     following problems:

           o  DOUBLDEALO user mode bugchecks

           o  ACCVIO in various symbol manipulation routines

           o  SYMOVF error message

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE

  o  A process that has spawned several jobs, using  a  combination
     of  SPAWN/WAIT  and  SPAWN/NOWAIT commands, stays in state HIB
     after all the spawned subprocesses have completed.

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE


  o  When an image run by a DCL  procedure  includes  a  line  that
     generates  a  skipped data warning immediately after the image
     line, the status from the image run is returned in R0 and  the
     warning is not caught by DCL.

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE

  o  Attempting to execute the TCPIP$CONFIG.COM  procedure  results
     in an ACCVIO abnormally terminating the process.

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE

  o  The PIPE command may cause a SYSTEM-F-MBTOOSML error  message.
     This  is  caused  by  the  command  overflowing  the  mailbox
     handling the  data  between  the  subprocesses.   Raising  the
     SYSGEN parameter DEFMBXMXMSG has no effect.

       Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]DCL.EXE

  o  Support for the /PASSIVE qualifier has been added.



    Controls whether the FTP client or server initiates the
    data connection.  If this qualifier is not specified,
    the Internet Protocol appropriate value is used (OFF for
    IPv4, ON for IPv6).
    The underlying TCP/IP Networking product must recognize
    this qualifier and must support FTP passive in order for
    this qualifier to have an effect.


       OFF      The FTP server initiates the data connection.

       ON       The FTP client initiates the data connection.

                This is often used where a firewall between 
                the FTP client and server prevents the server 
                from making an outbound connection.

                ON is the default value if only /PASSIVE is

       Images Affected:  [CLD]COPY.CLD


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 VMS73_DCL-V0200 /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


  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:


        -  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
     VMS73_DCL-V0200 kit would be:

          $ exit
