Re: Reboot Using Changes From MODPARAMS

Ian,

"if feedback is suspect, autogen does not use feedack" (help).

How does autogen detect a suspect feedback ?

I checked autogen.com.

CHECK_FEEDBACK checks :
uptime must be > 24h
must have been taken < 30 days ago

That's all.

Re: Reboot Using Changes From MODPARAMS

Hoff, not saving FEEDBACK during shutdown (assuming SYS$SYSTEM:SHUTDOWN here) is fine, except that it won't bring in changes to MODPARAMS.

That's what I need AUTOGEN for.

Re: Reboot Using Changes From MODPARAMS

@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA SETPARAMS CHECK_FEEDBACK

check the report file here and then

@SYS$SYSTEM:SHUTDOWN 0 SHUTDOWN NO YES LATER YES NONE

If you want to skip the check of report file (not recommended)
@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA REBOOT CHECK_FEEDBACK

Re: Reboot Using Changes From MODPARAMS

A slight difference from Ian's method.

@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA TESTFILES CHECK_FEEDBACK

Review AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT for warnings and changes.

@SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN SETPARAMS

Reboot when convenient.

I prefer not to run the SETPARAMS phase until I've seen the report file since I've been known to make typos once in a while.
