OpenVMS] VMS73_DTSS-V0100 OpenVMS V7.3 Daylight Savings Time ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS] VMS73_DTSS-V0100 OpenVMS V7.3 Daylight Savings Time 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, 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.

       installation of this kit:


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



An ECO kit exists for the daylight savings adjustment on OpenVMS Alpha 
V7.3.  This kit addresses the following problems.

  o  The DAYLIGHT_SAVINGS.COM procedure is used to change between
     Daylight Savings Time and Standard Time when automatic OpenVMS
     DST/STD changing and DTSS are not in use.  The procedure
     correctly sets the TDF but moves the time the wrong way.



The system does not need to be rebooted after this kit is installed.
However, if the system is a member of a VMScluster, the other cluster
members should be rebooted or this kit should be installed on each 
system in order to make use of the new image(s). 

Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the
DCL prompt:


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:

      1.  Define logical NO_ASK$BACKUP as TRUE

      2.  Define logical NO_ASK$REBOOT as TRUE

      3.  Add the following qualifiers to the PRODUCT INSTALL
          command and add that command to the DCL procedure.


      4.  De-assign the logicals assigned

          For example, a sample command file to install the
          VMS73_DTSS-V0100 kit would be:

            $ exit
