Modification Type: DOCUMENTATION: Technical Modification:
This kit is a full product replacement.
NOTE: An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
The name of the compressed file will be kit_name-dcx_vaxexe
for OpenVMS VAX or kit_name-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha.
Once the file is copied to your system, it can be expanded
by typing RUN compressed_file. The resultant file will
be the OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file which
can be used to install the ECO.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:
An ECO kit exists for DECnet SNA APPC/LU6.2 Programming Interface for
OpenVMS V2.2 on OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 or later or OpenVMS AXP V6.1 or later.
This kit addresses the following problems:
o Programs hung when transferring data block greater than 4064 bytes in
a MAPPED conversation. The reason being was that the LU6.2 didn't
recognize the length continuation indicator bit was turned on.
o snalu62$send_error would hang in the confirm_send state.
o Access violation caused by an obscure/rare stack corruption problem.
o A problem resulted from using a resource id that was no longer valid.
When this occurred LU6.2 would report a routine name with garbage and
then access violate. This only happened on the Alpha AXP platform.
o Another access violation, this time due to improper memory management
after LU6.2 called localtime(). This only happened on the Alpha AXP
The ECO kit can be installed with the VMSINSTAL command procedure, as
outlined in Chapter 3 of the VMS System Manager's Manual (AA-LA00A-TE).
The installation procedure for the DECnet SNA OpenVMS APPC-LU6.2
Programming Interface will install SNALU62SHR.EXE and SNALU62MG.EXE
as shareable images.
To install the APPC-LU6.2 on other nodes that share a common system
disk in a cluster environment, run the SYS$MANAGER:SNALU62$STARTUP.COM
command procedure on each node.
For nodes in a cluster environment that do not share a common system
disk, APPC-LU6.2 will have to be installed on each node.
Verification of the installation can be done either during installation
through the VMSINSTAL utility or at any other time by running the
SNALU62$IVP.COM command procedure found in SYS$TEST. This command
procedure only verifies that the APPC-LU6.2 has been installed
correctly on your system. It does not verify connectivity to the IBM
