how to get a patch having the ReleaseNotes (ALP_DFGE01027)

someone knows where i can find the DFGE01027 kit (Disk File Optimizer V2.7 ECO1 for OpenVMS ALPHA)which should have been released last 04/11/03, but for which i found only its Cover Letter ?
i think it could be a general problem for all these kind of non specific o.s. version product.
thanks

I have seen the releases notes on the australian site (not seen as an archive) at

http://ftp.support.compaq.com.au/pub/ecoinfo/ecoinfo/974.htm

I have not found it at ftp.itrc.hp.com

You should log a call to your support center, and you will get it.

Mario,

DFGE01027 is an "entitled" ECO. That means it can only be made available to a customer with a valid service contract for the product.

Layered product ECOs sometimes fall into this category. Please log a case with your local Customer Support Centre to obtain a copy.

Generally you would find such a patch in

ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/openvms_patches/layered_products/alpha/

(or VAX if you run there).

As John pointed out, this is not the case for this particular patch.

The kit is e.g. on the december edition of the CDROM LP distribution (VAX or Alpha), the kit installs on both platforms.
