OpenVMS VMS73_TDF-V0100 Alpha V7.3 TDF ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_TDF-V0100 Alpha V7.3 TDF 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.

     Kit Dependencies:

       The following remedial kit(s), or later, must be installed BEFORE
       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 TDF on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3.  This kit addresses the 
following problems: 


     o  Java applications that run continuously through the daylight
        savings time adjustment incur a two hour clock adjustment
        rather than a one hour clock adjustment.  The java application
        must be stopped and restarted to correct the time.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]JBC$JOB_CONTROL.EXE

     o  In the Southern Hemisphere when the time was moved forward at
        the October Daylight Savings Time adjustment, multithreaded
        processes went into a tight CPU loop.  Examples of
        applications showing the problem are DCPS symbiont, decevent,
        or anything using the Java runtime.  Stopping and restarting
        the processes resolved the problem.

        This problem will happen again at the next daylight savings
        time adjustment.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]SYS$DAYLIGHT_SAVING.EXE

     o  Setting the DISUSER flag on the SYSTEM account causes the
        login failure message:

            %LOGIN-F-DISUSER, account is disabled

        to be displayed when the job controller tries and retries
        creating the daylight savings time adjustment process.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]JBC$JOB_CONTROL.EXE


No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.


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

Special Installation Instructions:

     o  Stop/Restart of Job Controller

        This kit does not require a reboot but does require the job
        controller to be stopped and restarted after installation of
        the kit.  To stop the job controller, enter the command:

              $STOP JOB_CONTROL

        To restart the job controller, enter the command:

             $@sys$system:STARTUP JOBCTL

     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:


           -  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_TDF-V0100 kit would be:

          $ exit
