ECO KIT SUMMARY:
An ECO kit exists for DECnet for OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 on OpenVMS Alpha V6.2.
This kit addresses the following problems.
o The CPU affinity for NETACP was modified to prevent a potential
system crash or race conditions leading to a deaccess hang in
an SMP or EV5 environment.
o This kit will also modify the DECnet $PROBE to prevent an access
violation on zero length $QIO reads or writes. This zero length
$QIO, for example, could be used when terminating a series of
IO$M_MULTIPLE reads or writes.
The system must be rebooted for the new NETDRIVER image to be loaded.
