HP Services Software Patches - abse01a021
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.

     NOTE:  In order to receive the full fixes listed in this kit,
            the following remedial kits also need to be installed:



This kit contains a correction to a problem found in Archive/Backup
System (ABS) Version 2.1A for OpenVMS as shipped on the Q3CY97
OpenVMS consolidated product distributions for OpenVMS VAX and 
OpenVMS Alpha and packaged in the Storage Library System (SLS) 
Version 2.9 media kit.

In ABS Version 2.1A, if you created an incremental save request
and specified only a disk name, only the disk name was passed to
the OpenVMS BACKUP Utility. This produced incorrect behavior for 
an incremental backup operation.


This has been corrected for ABS Version 2.1A-ECO1. If you specify
only a disk name, ABS will append [000000...]* to the end of the
disk name and pass this specification to the VMS BACKUP command.
This is the correct behavior for an incremental backup operation.

To verify that you have the correct version of the file 
file and make sure that the BACKUP command is the same one as shown 
in the following example:



    BACKUP {DMWR.include_device_name}{DMWR.include_object_name} -{CR}

    BACKUP {DMWR.wildcard_include_spec} -{CR}
