What does this mean ?
If the CD is mounted, then You can DIRECTORY, COPY, PRODUCT INSTALL, @sys$update:VMSINSTAL etc. using the CD as the source directory specification.

To find out where the UCX kit is on the CD, do a directory list on dev:[000000]
See if there is a directory named UCX*, or a directory like [KITS],
I don't have one at hand to look what it is actually called.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

Hi Anjan,

For UCX/TCPIP installation procedure, refer -

* DIGITAL TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS, Installation and Configuration
http://h30266.www3.hp.com/odl/vax/network/tcpipv42/install/6524pro.html

Hope this helps.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

VMS/Alpha 7.2 comes with TCPIP 5.0
On the system installation CD1 I see:

dir dqa0:[TCPIP_ALPHA050]

Directory DQA0:[TCPIP_ALPHA050]

DOCUMENTATION.DIR;1 KIT.DIR;1

dir dqa0:[TCPIP_ALPHA050.kit]

Directory DQA0:[TCPIP_ALPHA050.KIT]

DEC-AXPVMS-TCPIP-V0500-9-1.PCSI;1
DEC-AXPVMS-UCX-V0402-21PLACEHOLDER-1.PCSI;1


So the installation is done by:
PRODUCT INSTALL TCPIP /source=DQA0:[TCPIP_ALPHA050.KIT]

And the installation manual in [TCPIP_ALPHA050.DOCUMENTATION]


This installs TCPIP 5.0,
ECOs You have to download from the ITRC patch site, see the link on this page below.

Hi Anjan,

Belo link explains how to install and configure the DIGITAL TCP/IP for OpenVMS (UCX) layered application product and the programmer s guide. May be helpful.

Hi Anjan,

>> I am able to mount the CD but not able to enter into it.
Are you able to do dir on the CD? If you are able to do dir on the CD then you can install the kit using the below command.

$ PRODUCT INSTALL TCPIP /source=
Hope this resolves your issue.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

I mean to say that can u please tell me the commands to mount the CD rom and check for what are the directories available in the CD rom?

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

Initially You wrote You were able to mount the CD ?
The Cd can be mounted like any other disk on the system.
So let dev: be the CD ROM device (DQxn: for IDE,DKxn: for SCSI), then
MOUNT dev: ALPHA072
(ALPHA072 is the volume label, it is written on the CD)
Then to get the "root" directory:
DIRECTORY dev:[000000]
And for the specific TCPIP kit see the directory names I have written in my earlier reply.

Hi Anjan,

You can use the below command to mount the CD on VMS.

$ mount/over=id
$ dir :[000000]

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

"Not able" is not a useful problem
description. It does not say what you did.
It does not say what happened when you did
it.

What does the label say? I have nine CDs in
my "OpenVMS [tm] Alpha Software Product
Library".

Is that the only thing you looked for? On
my CD ("AXPBINMAR001"):

ALP $ dir cd1:[000000]*tcpip*

When you did DIRECTORY DQB0:[000000], did it list TCPIP_ALPHA050.DIR? Show us!

Are you using the right CD? UCX / TCPIP never used to be on the layered products CD --- It used to be on the operating CD. Another poster (Joseph?) also said you need to look on the ALPHA072 CD. Show us the output of

Why do you believe that your (old?) CD-ROM
contains TCPIP V5.0A ECO2?

Still wondering.

Every version of TCPIP which I've ever seen
could use considerable improvement, and newer
versions and ECOs tend to be better than
older ones. Please explain why are you not
trying to install the latest version+ECO
which is compatible with your VMS version.

What is "the layered products CD"? "DIGITAL
TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS[TM] Version 5.0A"
is certainly in my March 2000 SPL CD
collection. (It's on CD 1.)

> [...] It used to be on the operating CD.

Yes, it's normally there, too.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

In my earlier reply I showed the 7.2 operating system CD1, but now realize Anjan has 7.2-1:
the system CD set consists of 2 CDs labelled
"OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 Operating System"
The volume label is ALPHA0721
and it contains directory [TCPIP_ALPHA050A].

the second CD is labelled
"OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 Layered Products" , volume label ALPHA0721LP.

The latest TCPIP version running on VMS7.2-1 is probably 5.2; TCPIP 5.3 runs from VMS7.2-2 upwards.
(TCPIP5.2 I don't know for sure, there are no downloadable patches on the ITRC side, only patches for 5.1 and 5.3).

What does the dir output specify? Do you see anything in the CD? Are you using correct CD? Please provide the output of below command.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

Anjan,

Before jumping into the install, what version of OpenVMS is running on the target system?

Assuming a supported operating system, the first step will be to install TCPIP 5.0A, then you'll want to install the patch. Depending on the operating system version, you may be able to load TCPIP 5.1.

The early versions of TCPIP, 5.0, 5.0A, and 5.1 really need to be patched.

Re: UCX 5.0A ECO2 Installation procedure.

If this is the same systems you posted in
http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1435426 the first step will be to install TCPIP, second you'll need to install the ECO (patch). I believe TCPIP will be on the operating system CD, I don't recall if it's also present on the layered products CD.

As noted in the previous thread, ECO 3 was the last release for 5.0A.

Unless the ECO is a full product kit, in
which case, you can save some work, and
simply install the ECO kit.
