How to find out what PCSI options have been used?

Just found out that some of our systems are missing the file SYS$EXAMPLES:DAYLIGHT_SAVINGS.COM.

As far as I can tell, this file is initially provided with VMS, and is certainly included in VMS732_UPDATEs, e.g. V1100.

However, when I tried installing the update, on some systems it said:

that was not selected; file update skipped

My question is: how do I find out what options have been defined, and how do I change them so the file is not skipped next time?

This should be easy, but HELP PROD and Google have not revealed anything. Nothing I could see in the VMS FAQ either.

Obviously I can just copy the file from the PCSI kit or another system, but that does not solve the problem long-term.

Re: How to find out what PCSI options have been used?

You'll probably have to do a PRODUCT RECONFIGURE to add the example files back in. The syntax is similar to a PRODUCT INSTALL, but you'll have to do it from your booted CD, not a live system. There's a section in the FAQ... uhm, 15.4.2:


It talks about DECnet, but it applies to reconfiguring OpenVMS for other options, too.
