OpenVMS VMS73_REGISTRY-V0100 Alpha V7.3 REGISTRY ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS VMS73_REGISTRY-V0100 Alpha V7.3 REGISTRY 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.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:

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

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS73_REGISTRY-V0100 KIT

     o  The system can  crash  with  various  types  of  bugchecks  if
        $Registry  attempts  to  receive  more  data from the Registry
        server than is allowed by the process' BYTLM quota.

          Images Affected:[SYS$LDR]SYS$NTA.EXE


     o  Issuing the command:

          $ mc reg$cp export database

        on  a  new  database  causes  value  names   to   be   written
        incorrectly.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]REG$CP.EXE



     o  Processes can hang if a connection breaks and there are  timed
        out requests in the Registry request queue.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]SYS$NTA.EXE




     o  When the server is trying to shut  down,  it  will  ACCVIO  in
        various  places,  but  usually in a pthread_cleanup_pop() call
        after signaling the datalogcleaner thread.  Usually the  final
        exit  status  will be 0x10408014.  The problem is due to queue
        corruption because the mutex locking to protect the queue  was
        in  the  wrong place.  It was protecting other operations, but
        not the queue itself.  This fix moves the code which locks the
        mutex so that it protects the queue.

          Images Affected:[SYSEXE]REGISTRY$SERVER.EXE



INSTALLATION NOTES:

No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation  utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the

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

           -  Add  the  following  qualifiers  to  the  PRODUCT  INSTALL
              command and add that command to the DCL procedure.

                /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0


           -  De-assign the logicals assigned

        For  example,  a  sample   command   file   to   install   the
        VMS73_REGISTRY-V0100 kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS73_REGISTRY/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $!
          $ exit
