Compaq TCP/IP TCPIPVAX_E0151 TCP/IP V5.1 for OpenVMS VAX ECO Summary
TITLE: Compaq TCP/IP TCPIPVAX_E0151 TCP/IP V5.1 for OpenVMS VAX ECO Summary

New Kit Date     :  10-MAY-2001
Modification Date:  Not Applicable
Modification Type:  New Kit
 
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, then it can
       be expanded by typing RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe.  The resultant
       file will be the PCSI installation file which can be used to install
       the ECO.

7.2-2.  This kit addresses the following problems: 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Corrections for COMPAQ TCP/IP Services V5.1 BFS Images
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
ECO 1 updates
--------------
ECO A	10-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$CFS_SHR.EXE			V5.1-15A

	Problem:

	NFS problem with file aliases where certain file aliases created
	on the VMS side are only partly visable on Unix.

	Solution:

	Treat all file aliases to directories as directories when
	MODUS_OPERANDI bit 16384 is set.

	Reference:

	PTR 70-8-42

ECO 1 updates
--------------
ECO A	10-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE			V5.1-15A

	Problem:

	The dynamic updates being sent by the load broker to a
	Windows2000 DNS server were failing with an error similiar to:

	unknown response: ans=0, auth=1, add=1, rcode=3

	Solution:

	Modify the check on the response packet from an SOA query to accept
	packets that have an empty answer section, auth=1, and add=1.

	Reference:

	PTR 70-5-1572 / CFS.80807 / Req Id: BE_G01053

ECO B	16-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$IPC_SHR.EXE			V5.1-15B

	Problem:

    	FTP, telnet, and possibly others were failing with 'unexpected 
    	nameserver error' when trying to connect to a host that had an 
    	underscore in the host name.

	Solution:

    	Loosen the restriction on the host name checking.  The resolver now
    	uses a different routine to process host names. This routine verifies
    	against a larger character set which includes underscores, et al.

	NOTE:

	In order for hostnames containing underscores to be allowed using 
	applications such as TELNET and FTP, the following line must be
	added to the options section of your BIND servers' TCPIP$BIND.CONF
	configuration file:

	        check-names master ignore;

	for example:

		options {
                		directory "SYS$SPECIFIC:[TCPIP$BIND]";
                		check-names master ignore;
        		};

--------------
ECO A	12-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$BIND_SERVER_CONTROL.EXE		V5.1-15A

	Problem:
	
	The ndc commands start, stop, and restart no longer work.

	Solution:

    	No longer use the sending of a packet method to start the BIND
    	server.  Instead, incorporate the TCPIP$BIND_STARTUP/SHUTDOWN
	command procedures to do the job.

	Problem:

        TCPIP SHOW HOST was ACCVIO'ing in certain cases when retrieving the
        BIND database.

	Solution:

	NSLOOKUP was modified to deal with large DNS messages.

	Reference:

	PTR 70-5-1560 / CFS.80586 / Req Id: GB_G01030
	PTR 70-5-1588 / CFS.81412 / Req Id: GB_G01110

	TCPIP$DNFSDISMOUNT.EXE			V5.1-15A
	TCPIP$DNFSDRIVER.EXE			V5.1-15A
	TCPIP$DNFSMOUNT.EXE			V5.1-15A

        Problem:

        Experiment to use native quadword math on Alpha still
        has problems.

        Solution:

        Force the Alpha path to use the same LIB$* routines
        as the VAX path.

ECO 1 updates
--------------
ECO A	19-FEB-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.EXE			V5.1-15A	

	Problem:

	FTP Server ACCVIO'S because the reallocation of the session 
	table on the 129th simultaneous connection fails.

	Solution:

	Dynamically reallocate the session table.
        Session table grows by MAX_SESSIONS.

        Problem:

        The INETdriver can cause a PGFIPLHI crash in VMS EXE$CANCEL.

        Solution:

        Fixed the INETdriver to make sure the CCB is paged into
        memory before returning to EXE$CANCEL.

	Sources:

	TCPIP$V51_CONVERSION.COM

	Problem:

	TCP/IP Services doesn't support SMTP as an IPv6 capable service.

	Solution:

        Modified UCPs service database module and the V5.1 rollover 
	command procedure to add support for SMTP as an IPv6 capable
        service.

	Reference:

	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2075

        TCPIP$SHUTDOWN.COM fails to:

        1. return correct severity level for shutdown errors, and

        2. only delete service-enable logical names on successful shutdowns.

	Solution:

        Modified the TCPIP$SHUTDOWN.COM command procedure to return correct
        severity  level for shutdown errors, and only delete service-enable
        logical names on successful shutdowns.

	Reference:

	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2161

	Sources:

	TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

	Problem:

	SYSCONFIGTAB.DAT database file is not created by TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

	Solution:

        Modified TCPIP$CONFIG.COM to create TCPIP$ETC:SYSCONFIGTAB.DAT 
	database by extracting its template file from 
	SYS$LIBRARY:TCPIP$TEMPLATES.TLB.
	
	Reference:

	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2180

ECO D	10-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Problem:

	The TCPIP> ANALYZE MAIL /REPAIR operation does not fix
        any inconsistencies, but exits with %TCPIP-E-SMTPERROR
        and %TCPIP-W-ANA_QUEACC.  These error show non-printable
	characters and customer needs to reset its terminal.

	Solution:

	Initialized the field passed when writing out this message
	to avoid the non-printable characters. Allow the analyze mail 
	to continue to queue other files despite the error caused by 
	particular invalid files.  Also, added another informational
        message which aids in determining which file and possible cause of
        the failing file message:

	Problem:

	Memory leak of SLIP, P5 buffer and vcibdef data structures of type
	OVMS_ACP_SLIP, OVMS_ACP_SLIP_P5 and OVMS_INET_LAN_VCIB
	respectively.

	Solution:

        Deallocate SLIP and P5 buffer in INETACP_CREATE_SLIP_INIT with
	FREE_ACP; after INETACP_SET_PPP is called. Fix a bug in
	inet_ppp_vci.c where it was incorrectly assumed that inetvcib is
	deallocated by other driver code.

	Problem:
	
	SNMP does not report the correct speed for an interface. On V5.1
	all LAN interfaces report 10MB, including ethernet, gigabit
	ethernet and FDDI.

	Solution:

	Add code to interface initalization code in the Kernel to properly
	initialize the if_baudrate field in the IFNET structure.

	Problem:

        System Crash during TCP/IP shutdown due to arrival of a send or 
	receive QIO at the wrong time.

	Solution:

	Initialize variables in the code process that sends and recieves
	QIO requests before testing to see if we are in the TCP/IP
	shutdown phase.

	Problem:

        In the RSH/REXEC server, the print-format carriage control is not
        properly handled.  This is particularly a problem for COBOL
        applications, whose output is incorrectly displayed with 137 blank
        lines between every two lines of output.

	Solution:

	The RSH/REXEC server has been corrected to deal with certain
	carriage control specifications, including those commonly used by 
	COBOL applications.

	PTR 70-5-1611 / CFS.82075 / Req Id: TKTB20073 / TCPIP_BUGS Note 8343

ECO E	10-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$INTERNET_SERVICES.EXE		V5.1-15E
	
	Problem:

	Oracle Parallel Server does not work with TCPIP V5.1.  The problem
	arises in a select() call which is aborted due to receipt of a
	signal.  In reality we had two problems.  First, in some
	circumstance select() was returning the wrong status code, SS$_SHUT
	rather than SS$_CANCEL.  Second, if the select abort occurred in a
	very small window of time, there was a danger of an incorrect value
	being left in a UCB field and this incorrect value would lead to
	select() failing forever more within the context of the current
	process.

        Solution:

	The solution to the first problem is to simply change the returned
	status code so that the caller is satisfied.  The solution to the
	second problem is to clear the offending field when a select is
	aborted.

	Reference:

	PTR 75-45-2256
	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2165
	
ECO F	10-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$INTERNET_SERVICES.EXE		V5.1-15F

	Problem:

        5.1 does not send back an RST when it gets a TCP packet
        out of the blue, for a connection it doesn't recognize.

	Solution:

	Backport the fix from 5.1A(QAR 76705).

	Reference:

	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2204

ECO G	13-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$INTERNET_SERVICES_SMP.EXE		V5.1-15G

	Problem:

	Enhancement for internal performance testing only.

	Solution:

	Rebuild kernel to incorporate fix.

	Reference:

	Internal testing.

ECO H	16-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$INTERNET_SERVICES.EXE		V5.1-15H

	Problem:

	The sysconfig logic implemented in common_cfg.c
	does not pay attention to the type of operation and
	treat CFG_OP_RECONFIGURE as CFG_OP_CONFIGURE.
	This can lead to crashes (see note 2162.0)

	Solution:

	common_cfg.c is a VMS specific file. (distant cousin 
	of UNIX cfg related files.)

	This file was missing the check for reconfigure.
	I incorporated the check done in UNIX in common_cfg.c

	Note: Under UNIX the logic is implemented in the kern_kmodcall.c
	for the local system with support logic in subsys_conf.c
	and cfg_subr.c for remote.

	PTR 70-5-1480 / CFS.78558 / Req Id: MGO93885A
	TCPIP_BUGS Note 2144

ECO I	16-MAR-2001	Alpha and VAX

	Images:

	TCPIP$INETACP.EXE		V5.1-15I

	Problem:

	After defining an "accept network" the hosts in 
	that network are not allowed access via telnet.

	Solution:

	When IPv6 is enabled for a service, such as telnet, 
	the sockaddrs for incoming connections are always 
	IPv6 sockaddrs even when the incoming connection 
	came from an IPv4 host.  In this case ths sockaddr 
	will contain an IPv4 mapped address in the IPv6 
	sockaddr.

	Images:

	TCPIP$INETACP.EXE		V5.1-15K
	TCPIP$INTERNET_SERVICES.EXE	V5.1-15K

	Problem:

	Fixed 5 problems with NFS.

	Solution:

	1: Fix problem where a subsystem with one parameter will return
	   sizing information instead of the parameter in query_all.
	2: Fix problem where a subsystem parameter marked as configure
	   onlycan be reconfigured.  This can lead to system crashes.
	3: When opening an association using the old relationship style
	   with a UCB, clear the DELETEUCB bit to protect it.
	4: When closing an association using the old relationship style
	   with a UCB, set the DELETEUCB bit to allow its deletion.
	5: Added input parameter host_pointer to the proxy routines
	   GET_REMOTE_USER_NAME and GET_REMOTE_USER_UID.

	Problem:

        When multiple address in an SMTP .DIS file are in the local domain
        and one of the addresses can't be delivered delivery stops and the
        addresses following the address with problems are ignored.
        
	Solution:

        Bounce the mail for the address that incurs the problem and continue
        delivering to the next address as was done before the bug was
        introduced.

        Problem:

        Access Violation occurs in MAILSHR when an attempt is made
        to mail a file via SMTP, with incorrect file attributes.

        Solution:

        Bugs were identified in both VMSMail and SMTP which both
        conspired to cause these ACCVIOs on Alpha (and other errant
        behavior on VAX).  In VMSmail, its RMS error AST routine was
        fixed to include correct VMSmail context when LIB$SIGNALing
        the error which SMTP was reporting via the MAIL$PROTOCOL
        interface.  Contact VMS Support regarding availability of
        this patch.

        In SMTP, don't always trust the longest-record-length file
        attribute, establishing a minimum 1000-byte buffer for reading
        mail files, and don't resignal RMS$_RTB to the MAILSHR condition
        handler directly from SMTP.

        TCPIP$SNMP_TRAPSND.EXE      V5.1-15A

	Problem:

        When a subagent sends a long trap (e.g., one with 7 varbinds, each
        with 240 characters of data), the master agent returns a malformed
        packet to the subagent, which can cause the subagent to restart.
        Also various incorrect error messages were getting generated.

	Solution:

        The master agent was sending a malformed AgentX response packet
        back to the subagent after a notification request.  The subagent
        detected this packet, which caused a restart; not all subagents are
        necessarily coded to detect such packets, so such and error might 
        not cause a restart.  The fixed master agent sends a properly 
	formatted packet; also, error and warning messages are improved.

INSTALLATION NOTES:

The images in this kit will not take effect until the system is
rebooted.  If there are other nodes in the VMScluster, they must 
also be rebooted in order to make use of the new image(s).  

The DEC-VAXVMS-TCPIP_ECO-V0501-151-4.PCSI kit is installed using
the PCSI utility.

  $PRODUCT INSTALL TCPIP_ECO /SOURCE=device-name

Existing versions of the files being installed will not be
preserved.  If this is desired it must be done manually.  To
determine what files will be overwritten do a PRODUCT LIST of
the kit.

The ECO kit checks to ensure that a valid license is installed
before proceeding.  If one is not found, the installation aborts.
Restart the installation after a valid license is installed.

This DEC-VAXVMS-TCPIP_ECO-V0501-151-4 kit will install on the
VAX platform, and is supported with OpenVMS releases 7.1
through 7.2.  No other platforms or OpenVMS releases are
supported with this kit.

POSSIBLE INSTALL PROBLEMS:

There is a bug in the PCSI utility that ships in the following
kits that will cause the install to fail:

  o DEC AXPVMS VMS V7.1-2 (OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2)
  o DEC AXPVMS VMS V7.2 (OpenVMS Alpha V7.2)
  o DEC VAXVMS VMS V7.2 (OpenVMS VAX V7.2)
  o DEC AXPVMS VMS62TO71U2_PCSI V1.0 (PCSI ECO kit for
    OpenVMS Alpha V6.2 through V7.1-2)
  o DEC VAXVMS VMS62TO71_PCSI V1.0 (PCSI ECO kit for
    OpenVMS VAX V6.2 through V7.1)

The PCSI utilities in the kits listed above were all built from
the same source code.  They all identify themselves in the output
from the PRODUCT SHOW UTILITY command as:

  "POLYCENTER Software Installation utility version: V7.2-100".
