ECO KIT SUMMARY:
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.
Images Affected: [SYSHLP.EXAMPLES]DAYLIGHT_SAVINGS.COM
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
PRODUCT INSTALL VMS73_DTSS /SOURCE=[location of Kit]
The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that

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:
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:
$ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
$ PROD INSTALL VMS73_DTSS/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
