TCPWARE 5.7-2 installation error on ALPHA OPENVMS7.3-2

I tried to upgrade one of our ALPHA-1000 box TCPWARE 5.6-2 to 5.7-2 under OpenVMS 7.3-2, the following error comes up

Installing TCP-OpenVMS

%LINK-W-NUDFSYMS, 4 undefined symbols:
%LINK-I-UDFSYM, SDA$EXTEND_PRINT_CC
%LINK-I-UDFSYM, SDA$EXTEND_SKIP_LINES
%LINK-I-UDFSYM, SDA$EXTEND_TRYMEM64
%LINK-I-UDFSYM, SDA$EXTEND_VECTOR_TABLE_ADDR
%LINK-W-USEUNDEF, undefined symbol SDA$EXTEND_TRYMEM64 referenced
in psect $LINK$ offset %X00000050
in module TCPWARE$SDA file ALPHA $DRA0:[SYS0.SYSUPD.TCPWARE057]DRIVERS_VS
.OLB;1
...

I also upgraded 3 of other ALPHA DS-20 (OpenVMS 7.3-2) boxes but without problem.

Does anyone know why the symbols are undefined?

Re: TCPWARE 5.7-2 installation error on ALPHA OPENVMS7.3-2

TCPware 5.7 contains an SDA extension image that is useful for Process Software technical support to request information about the state of TCPware should the system crash (and write a dump). That is what the TCPWARE$SDA image is.

This image is linked against the VMS library sys$library:vms$volatile_private_interfaces

I would guess that the system that had the problem has an incomplete version of this VMS library. You might want to do a LIBRARY/LIST of the library file on the various systems and compare the contents.

The link below provides more information about writing SDA extension images.
