Eddie,

I'm not sure what your question is. I see that patch described here:

http://www1.itrc.hp.com/service/patch/patchDetail.do?BC=patch.breadcrumb.main|patch.breadcrumb.search|&patchid=VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI-V0400&context=openvms:alpha:7.3-2

Eddie,

you can copy this patch from the ITRC FTP server:

$ COPY/FTP/BIN -
ftp.itrc.hp.com::"/openvms_patches/alpha/V7.3-2/VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI-V0400.PCSI-DCX_AXPEXE" []
(attention: line wrapped !)

or by logging into ITRC and using the Patch/Firmware database link -> Find individual patches -> OpenVMS

Re: VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI_V0400

Hi,

I am trying to install the patch, but I am getting the following error message
"%PCSI-E-S_INVNAM, invalid product name
%PCSI-E-S_OPFAIL, operation failed
%PCSIUI-E-ABORT, operation terminated due to an unrecoverable error condition"
Can anyone please let me know why this problem happened and how do I install the patch correctly.

Thanks,
Krishna

Re: VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI_V0400

When you have downloaded the *.PCSI-AXPEXE file, you have to RUN it to create the 'real' patchfile DEC-AXPVMS-VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI-V0400--4.PCSI.
You then install it via PROD INST VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI.

Can you list your real command and the VMS error messsage?

Re: VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI_V0400

Krishna,

files with extensions .PCSI-DCX_AXPEXE are self-expanding executable images.

$ RUN VMS732_PCSI-V0100.PCSI-DCX_AXPEXE

will create a VMS732_PCSI-V0100.PCSI file, which your would then install with:

$ PRODUCT INSTALL VMS732_PCSI-V0100/SOURCE=[]

Re: VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI_V0400

Krishna,

sorry, the command to install the produt should read:

$ PRODUCT INSTALL VMS732_PCSI /SOURCE=[]

The PCSI utility would then find all .PCSI kits with the name VMS732_PCSI-* (if there are more than one in the current directory) and offer you a choice which one to install.

Re: VMS732_FIBRE_SCSI_V0400

Krishna, Volker,

maybe it would be helpfull to a newbe to explicitly explain the difference between "@" and "RUN"

"@" is the way to specify that commands that can be found in the specified file are to be executed by the command line interpreter. They are the same commands that you can issue interacticely (well, strictly, with the exception of some flow control commands)
RUN is one of those commands, and it is the instruction to load and execute a program in compiled-and-linked code (binary code).

As a consequence, "@" does not know what to do with binary code, while "RUN" has no oway to handle command line input.

Hope thei helps,

Proost.

Have one on me.
