TITLE: OpenVMS,ABS] ABSE01032 Archive/Backup System for OpenVMS ECO Summary New Kit Date : 30-JUN-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. Copyright (c) Compaq Computer Corporation 2001. All rights reserved.

This kit addresses the following problems: This kit contains a version update of the Remote Device Facility (RDF) software. This update RDF V4.3G supersedes RDF V4.3A which was included with Storage Library System V2.9D/F and Archive Backup System V3.2 and V3.1A. Remote Device Facility is a trademark of Touch Technologies, Inc. who developed and maintain the software. This kit may be applied to systems running the following version(s) of Storage Library System (SLS) or Media and Device Management Services (MDMS): SLS Versions ABS Versions ------------ ------------ SLS V2.9D ABS V3.1A MDMS V2.9D MDMS V3.1A SLS V2.9F ABS V3.2 MDMS V2.9F MDMS V3.2 The kit automatically installs the correct images for your type of system (VAX or Alpha). For the first time we are providing a single installable kit that can be used with either the SLS or ABS product. Please refer to the installation section of this document for changes to the procedure. Only apply the kit to systems where either SLS/MDMS 2.9X or ABS/MDMS 3.1X and later have been installed. MDMS 2.9X does not include the backup and restore functionality of SLS. MDMS 3.1X and later can be installed separately to support the following products: Archive/Backup System (ABS) Versions V3.1X and V3.2, Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) Versions V3.1X and V3.2 Only when licensed with the use of an existing SLS or ABS license, or Running RDF with a separately purchased RDF license from TTI, Touch Technologies, Inc. CHANGES FROM RDF 4.3A TO RDF 4.3G: o AXP/VMS V7.3 problems relating to returning ZERO status back to the end user from a SETMODE IRP. o RDF .exe image files were not being updated to show the correct version. o Too many OPCOM messages would overflow the buffer while using previous versions of RDF. Refer to the release notes for more information. NEW FEATURES/FUNCTIONALITY: No new features, just bug-fixes. INSTALLATION NOTES: After installing this kit, it is necessary to restart ABS for all of the changes to take effect. This is a subset of the installation procedure, the RDFG043 is a single kit for both SLS and ABS, please refer to release notes. Install this kit with the VMSINSTAL utility by logging into the SYSTEM account, and entering the following command at the DCL prompt: $ @SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL RDFG043 [location of the saveset] The saveset location may be a tape drive, or a disk directory that contains the kit save set.
