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 Data Transfer Facility Server V3.2
on OpenVMS V6.1 through V7.1. This kit provides fixes for the following
Problems addressed by the SNADTFU_E04032 Kit:
o When GAI received an unbind request, the unbind response
was never sent out if the user didn't issue a deactivate_
session call. The LU would stay in the unbinding state.
The code has been modified so that when an unbind request
is received the session is terminated properly.
o Change fopen in write_log to force opening of a stream_lf
logfile. The problem was that if a previous version of the
log file had "var" attributes the new file would inherit
that attribute and then type out as a single column file.
o SNADTF was sending a large file with large RUs to the
mainframe and receiving IPR's from the other side.
The buffer allocated to hold the IPR was not being
deallocated. This was causing a memory leak. The error
message that would appear was: "-SNADTF-F-UNERETSYS,
unexpected return code from a system routine %INSVIRMEM,
insufficient virtual memory" The NEWAI was modified to
deallocate the IPR buffer.
Problems addressed by the SNADTFU_E03032 Kit:
o IBM initiated transfers to the VAX failed.
Problems addressed by the SNADTFU_E02032 Kit:
o GAI_CLOSE would not deallocate channels on abnormal
disconnects. This has now been corrected and the
sna__rcv_callback routine now will deallocate the
o The pacing indicator was never being set on first
request RH in pacing window when sending data to host.
This has now been corrected in the SNA__PAC_RQ_SEND
o Pacing not working properly when a pacing value was
specified. This has been corrected in the sna__tc_
dequeue_q_pac by checking if pacing_count is greater
than zero. Previously pacing_window was being checked
o Fixed the problem where SNARCOPY SHOW JOB command was
looping, when the generic queue and all other queues are
o When two or more same copies were running at the same
time, the error message "-SNADTF-F-SSFAIL, call to system
service $CHANGE_ACL failed" returned. Multiple RCOPY jobs
were being submitted that created the same workfile.WRK
in the SNADTF$MANAGER directory. RCOPY attempted to set
an ACL on the file. However, RCOPY didn't maintain the
version number of the work file, so two or more submitters
attempted to set the ACL on the same file!
o Fixed an QIO access violation when DTF copy with RMS
default network block count was above 125.
The ECO kit is installed with the VMSINSTAL command procedure.
