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.

Running REMACP process must be manually stopped and new
process started using RTTLOAD.COM. All remote terminal
sessions must be terminated during this process.
The REMACP process can be properly terminated using
$ MCR STOPREM
However, REMACP will not terminate until all users with
SET HOST connections have logged out. This can be
determined using the command:
$ SHOW DEVICE RTA
If there are any RTA devices other than
RTA0, there are users still logged in via DECnet.
Once they log out, the REMACP process will terminate.
To start up REMACP again, use the procedure:
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
- 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_REM-V0100 kit would be:
$ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
$ PROD INSTALL VMS73_REM/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
$ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
