TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_DRIVER-V0200 Alpha V7.3 Drivers ECO Summary New Kit Date: 08-JAN-2002 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. Copyright (c) Compaq Computer Corporation 2002. All rights reserved.

This kit addresses the following problems: PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_DRIVER-V0200 KIT: o When the CD-ROM is booted on an ES40, the following error message is returned after the initial boot messages: %SYSBOOT-I-GCTMINOR, GCT used with minor revision mismatch expected 00000005.00000001 - seen: 00000005.00000002 %SYSBOOT-F-LDFAIL,unable to load SYS$BASE_IMAGE.EXE,status=00000054 halted CPU = 0 halt code = 5 HALT instruction executed PC = 1d5e8 boot failure Images Affected: [SYS$LDR]SYS$DQDRIVER.EXE o When mounting an ATAPI device an ATA init_device_param command attempts to set the disk geometry. This command is illegal for ATAPI devices but it takes 15 seconds before the drive reports the error. Images Affected: [SYS$LDR]SYS$DQDRIVER.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. 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_DRIVER /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=V2.0 - De-assign the logicals assigned For example, a sample command file to install the VMS73_DRIVER-V0200 kit would be: $ $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT TRUE $! $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_DRIVE/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V2.0 $! $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$REBOOT $! $ exit All trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
