OpenVMS VMS73_MSCP-V0100 Alpha V7.3 MSCP ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_MSCP-V0100 Alpha V7.3 MSCP 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 MSCP on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3.  This kit addresses the 
following problems: 

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_MSCP-V0100 KIT

     o  Densities for the TF85, TF86 and TF87 are missing from
        DENSITY_TABLE.  These missing densities may cause
        TMSCP$VMSTOMSCP_DENS to fail to locate a certain density,
        thereby looking beyond allocated memory.  The result is a
        crash at AMAC$EMUL_LOCC_C+0005C, called from TMSCP+05B54 (in
        R26).

        This change adds the missing densities to DENSITY_TABLE and
        also makes TMSCP$VMSTOMSCP_DENS more robust against missing
        densities.

     o  A system crash may occur if a tape is ANSI mounted and
        mountverification starts:

     o  With Fibrechannel tapes, in the event of a connection error,
        one I/O could return an error while subsequent I/Os, that are
        still underway, complete with success.  This causes problems
        for mountverification when attempting to reposition the tape
        for error recovery.  The I/Os that complete after failed I/O
        cause the tape position in the UCB to be updated.  This causes
        out of sequence I/Os to be written to the tape, resulting in
        data corruption which may only be detected by BACKUP's verify
        operation.

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_MSCP /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_MSCP
        kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_MSC/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT
          $!
          $ exit
