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.

PRODUCT:    ACMS Desktop V2.3 for OpenVMS VAX V7.1

OP/SYS:     OpenVMS VAX V7.1

SOURCE:     Digital Equipment Corporation


     ECO Kit Name:  ACMSDI_V7103023
     ECO Kits Superseded by This ECO Kit:  None
     ECO Kit Approximate Size:  574 Blocks
                    Saveset A - 567 Blocks

     Kit Applies To:  OpenVMS VAX V7.1
     System/Cluster Reboot Necessary:  No


An ECO kit exists for ACMS Desktop V2.3 on OpenVMS VAX V7.1.  This
ECO addresses the following problems:

  o  This ECO fixes a problem with VMS authentication on OpenVMS V7.1.
     Clients were unable to sign in to ACMS unless they were ACMS agent
     This behavior occurred as result of the ACMSDI$SERVER detached
     process's username switching during signin.  This behavior has
     been resolved with a customized authentication library.


     As a result of using the revised library the ACMSDI$SERVER account must
     contain SECURITY privilege.  Client accounts will not be required
     to be ACMS agent accounts, however the ACMSDI$SERVER account must
     be an ACMS agent account as originally required.

  o  There is a problem if a version 2.0 or earlier SHOW_DESKTOP_USERS.EXE
     is run against a V2.2 or V2.3 ACMS Desktop server. It will corrupt the
     memory of the server process. There will not necessarily be an indication
     of a problem at the time that the older show_desktop_users is run.
     Some time later after additional system activity it will result in a
     process crash. The symptom of the crash will vary depending upon the
     state of the process when the corruption occurred.


     Additional checks have been added to the ACMS Desktop server to protect
     its memory from the effect of a V2.0 or earlier show_desktop_users.exe.

     If an older version of show_desktop_users is run against the ACMS Desktop
     server with this ECO3 installed, the server will log a marshalling error
     to the software event log. The server will ignore the request and the
     older client show_desktop_users will fail to complete.

     In order to obtain a show_desktop_users report, a version that matches
     the version of the ACMS Desktop server should be used.


For an OpenVMS VAX V7.1 installation of ACMS Desktop V2.3 ECO3
(ACMSDI_V7103023.A) please follow the following instructions:

While logged in to the priviledge account, set default to the SYS$UPDATE

The system/cluster does not need to be rebooted after this kit is 
installed.  However, ACMS should be shutdown and restarted in order
