Alpha VMS 8.2 required patches

We plan to install Drivers 200, update700 and sys700 and would like to know if there are any issues.

Also, are there any details on what is being fixed with the update?

Thanks.

Re: Alpha VMS 8.2 required patches

There is a text file containing the release notes for each patch available with the patches in
ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/openvms_patches/

See also the master patch list file which will tell you which patches are in the current update patch kit and which are not.

Arun,

UPDATE patches are are cumulative collections of individual pathces. For a description of all the problems fixed, you need to read the ECO text for each individual ECO included in an UPDATE patch.
