OpenVMS VMS73_SYSBOOT-V0100 Alpha V7.3 SYSBOOT ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_SYSBOOT-V0100 Alpha V7.3 SYSBOOT ECO Summary

New Kit Date     :  23-JUL-2001
Modification Date:  Not Applicable
Modification Type:  New Kit

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.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:

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

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_SYSBOOT-V0100 KIT:

  o  While booting with greater than 16GB on  an  ES40,  GS140,  or
     other system with a V5 style configuration tree, SYSBOOT fails
     with the following message:

     %SYSBOOT-F-PFNALLOC, slice allocation for PFN DB failed,
     status = 00002334

         Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]SYSBOOT.EXE


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.

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_SYSBOOT /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
