ACMS VMS721_ACMS-V0100 ACMS for OpenVMS Alpha 7.2-1 ECO Summary
TITLE: ACMS VMS721_ACMS-V0100 ACMS for OpenVMS Alpha 7.2-1 ECO Summary

Modification Date:  25-FEB-2002
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.

ECO KIT SUMMARY:

An ECO kit exists for ACMS on OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1. This kit
addresses the following problems:

PROBLEMS ADDRESSED IN VMS721_ACMS-V0100:

  o  There is a  potential  Security  Vulnerability  involving  ACMS
     processes  having  more  privileges enabled than the privileges
     specified in the authorization file.

     To protect against this  potential  security  risk,  Compaq  is
     making available a mandatory update ECO for ACMS V4.3 customers
     running OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1, V7.2-1H1, V7.2-2, and V7.3.

     The ACMS V4.3 ECO kit  is  being  made  available  through  the
     Compaq services web site and ECO kit distribution tools.

     For ACMS V4.4 customers a new  product  version  release,  ACMS
     V4.4A,  is  being  distributed  on  the  OpenVMS  Alpha Product
     Library starting in Q1  CY2002.   ACMS  V4.4  customers  should
     upgrade  to  V4.4A  immediately.   ACMS  V4.4A  is supported on
     OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-2 and V7.3.

                         **** NOTE ****

     This problem does not compromise the security  of  the  OpenVMS
     operating system.  If ACMS is not installed on your system, you
     do NOT need to install this mandatory update.  You  can  verify
     whether or not ACMS has been installed on your system using the
     following command:

           $ ACMS/SHOW SYSTEM

     If ACMS  is  not  installed  you  will  get  a  "%DCL-W-IVVERB,
     unrecognized   command   verb"   error  message.   If  ACMS  is
     installed, you will get a ACMS status message  that  tells  you
     the version of ACMS running on your machine.

                        **************

         Images Affected:  [SYSEXE]ACMSBOOT.EXE
                           [SYS$STARTUP]ACMSTART.COM

INSTALLATION NOTES:

You do not need to reboot your OpenVMS system.  However, if you are
running ACMS V4.3, you will need to restart ACMS after applying the
patch kit by using the following ACMS procedures:

   o  @SYS$STARTUP:ACMSTOP

   o  @SYS$STARTUP:ACMSTART

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS::

Install this kit with the POLYCENTER Software installation  utility
by logging into the SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the
DCL prompt:

PRODUCT INSTALL VMS721_ACMS /SOURCE=[location of Kit]

The kit location may be a tape drive, CD, or a disk directory that
contains the kit.

Additional help on installing PCSI kits can be found by typing
HELP PRODUCT INSTALL at the system prompt

SPECIAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

  o  Scripting of Answers to Installation Questions

     During installation,  this  kit  will  ask  and  require  user
     response  to  several  questions.  If you wish to automate the
     installation of this kit and avoid having to provide responses
     to  these  questions,  or having to restart ACMS manually, you
     must  create  a  DCL  command  procedure  that  includes   the
     following definitions and commands:

       -  $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE

       -  Add  the  following  qualifiers  to  the  PRODUCT  INSTALL
          command and add that command to the DCL procedure.

            /PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0

       -  De-assign the logicals assigned

     For  example,  a  sample   command   file   to   install   the
     VMS721_ACMS-V0100 kit would be:

          $
          $ DEFINE/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP TRUE
          $!
          $ PROD INSTALL VMS721_ACMS/PROD=DEC/BASE=AXPVMS/VER=V1.0
          $!
          $ DEASSIGN/SYS NO_ASK$BACKUP
          $ @SYS$STARTUP:ACMSTOP
          $ @SYS$STARTUP:ACMSTART
          $!
          $ exit
