Re: Boot


if there is no [SYS0], someone must have removed it. Just use ONE of your systems to upgrade that disk.

All the OpenVMS operating system files are present in the [VMS$COMMON...] directory tree and they will be updated. Files in the specific roots are node-specific files and do not need to be updated.

The upgrade will check for OpenVMS system files in a specific root, which should NOT be there and warn you appropriately.

Re: Boot

Look into all of the [sys*] roots. You will see a syscommon.dir in all of them, these are alias for the common [vms$system].

There is nothing specific to [sys0], it is just another nodes root, and need not be there, and will not be created by an upgrade.

Re: Boot

It's not uncommon to omit [SYS0] in a shared disk cluster. It just makes it a little less likely that you boot a system off the wrong root when you have the 'default' root missing.
