OpenVMS VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100 Alpha V7.3 CLIUTL ECO Summary

TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100 Alpha V7.3 CLIUTL ECO Summary New Kit Date: 15-NOV-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-dcx_axpexe.pcsi, then it can be expanded by typing RUN kitname-dcx_axpexe.pcsi. The resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be used to install the ECO. Copyright (c) Compaq Computer Corporation 2001. All rights reserved. OP/SYS: OpenVMS Alpha COMPONENT: CLIUTL SOURCE: Compaq Computer Corporation ECO INFORMATION: ECO Kit Name: VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100 DEC-AXPVMS-VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100--4.PCSI ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit: None ECO Kit Approximate Size: 1776 Blocks Kit Applies To: OpenVMS Alpha V7.3 System/Cluster Reboot Necessary: No Rolling Re-boot Supported: Information not Available Installation Rating: INSTALL_1 1 - To be installed by all customers. Kit Dependencies: The following remedial kit(s) must be installed BEFORE installation of this kit: None In order to receive all the corrections listed in this kit, the following remedial kits should also be installed: VMS73_MOUNT96-V0100 ECO KIT SUMMARY: An ECO kit exists for CLIUTL on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3. This kit addresses the following problems: PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100 KIT: o When a process exists on the system that is in the MUTEX or CEF state, SHOW SYSTEM will ACCVIO when the state qualifier is used. For example: QUEBIT> SHOW SYS/STATE=MUTEX %SYSTEM-F-ACCVIO, access violation, reason mask=00, virtual address=FFFFFFFFC0022A58, PC=0000000000042BE0, PS=0000001B Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SHOW.EXE o When running the Apache WEB server, a system can crash with a SSRVEXCEPT bugcheck in SHOW+61DA0 or SHOW+6205. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SHOW.EXE o When a SHOW DEVICE/FULL command is executed, the maximum blocks in extent cache and blocks currently in extent cache fields are not displayed. Images Affected: [SYSMSG]CLIUTLMSG.EXE o When a SHOW PROCESS/ALL/ID=XXXXXXXX command is executed, where XXXXXXX is the PID (Process Identifier) of the swapper, the following error can occur: %LIB-F-BADBLOSIZ, bad block size Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SHOW.EXE o When a SHO QUEUE command is entered, a queue entry number that is over 10,000,000 shows as asterisks rather than the queue entry number. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]QUEMAN.EXE [SYSMSG]CLIUTLMSG.EXE o A SET VOLUME/REBUILD command on a volume set may not reset the volume write count to the correct number of writers in the cluster. This can occur when a node that had the volume set mounted did not update the volume write count on dismount or on a crash. A SHOW DEVICE/REBUILD command always shows this volume as needing a rebuild. Even a SET VOLUME/REBUILD=FORCE command will not clear this rebuild status. Note: In order to receive this full correction, you must also install the VMS73_MOUNT96-V0100 ECO kit. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SET.EXE o In a SET FILE/LOG/VERSION command, the /LOG qualifier is ignored. For example: SYSTEM1 SET FILE/LOG/VER LOGIN.COM; SYSTEM1 The correct behavior is: SYSTEM1 SET FILE/LOG/VER LOGIN.COM; %SET-I-MODIFIED, WORK:[USER1]LOGIN.COM;2 modified SYSTEM1 Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SET.EXE o An invalid "error opening file" message could be displayed. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SET.EXE o The output of a CREATE/DIRECTORY/LOG command prints the resulting directory name in uppercase, regardless of the actual on-disk case. The actual directory is created correctly, but the informational message does not reflect the actual case of the directory. For example: $ SET DEFAULT DISK$ODS5:[test] $ SET PROCESS/PARSE=EXTENDED $ CREATE/DIRECTORY/LOG [test.MixedCaseDir] %CREATE-I-CREATED, DISK$ODS5:[TEST.MIXEDCASEDIR] created $ dir Mixed*.dir Directory DISK$ODS5:[test] MixedCaseDir.DIR;1 Images Affected: [SYSEXE]CREATE.EXE o A MTXCNTNONZ bugcheck could occur during logical name translation via the DCL SHOW LOGICAL command. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SHOW.EXE o The following shadow qualifiers are being clarified. o If /READ_COST is specified with the virtual unit, instead of an individual member, then all of the existing members' read cost is reset to their defaults. With this change, a message is now displayed indicating this. o If /MEMBER_TIMEOUT is specified with a virtual unit or if /MVTIMEOUT was specified to a member, the command succeeded in changing the value. However, these are conflicting conditions and should not be allowed. Images Affected: [SYSEXE]SET.EXE INSTALLATION NOTES: No reboot is necessary after successful installation of this kit. If you have other nodes in your VMScluster, they should be rebooted or install this kit in each system in order to make use of the new image(s). Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation utility by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the DCL prompt: PRODUCT INSTALL VMS73_CLIUTL /SOURCE=[location of Kit] The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that contains the kit. Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt SPECIAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: o Scripting of Answers to Installation Questions During installation, this kit will ask and require user response to several questions. If you wish to automate the installation of this kit and avoid having to provide responses to these questions, you must create a DCL command procedure that includes the following definitions and commands: 1. Define logical NO_ASK$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. /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0 4. De-assign the logicals assigned For example, a sample command file to install the VMS73_CLIUTL-V0100 kit would be: $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE $! $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_CLIUTL/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0 $! $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT $ exit All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
