Re: rx2660+vms8.3 need input time in everytimes bootup

Hi Edward,

>> machine rx2660+vms8.3
>> after re-power machine, need input time in everytimes when bootup
Couple of reasons for this problem could be -
1) SYSGEN Parameter SETTIME is set to 1

The following is the help on SETTIME SYSGEN parameter -

SETTIME

SETTIME enables (1) or disables (0) solicitation of the time of
day each time the system is booted. This parameter should usually
be off (0), so that the system sets the time of day at boot time
to the value of the processor time-of-day register. You can reset
the time after the system is up with the DCL command SET TIME
(see the HP OpenVMS DCL Dictionary).

The following command will give its current value
$MC SYSGEN SHOW SETTIME

Check whether it is set to 1 currently. if yes then you can reset it to 0.

2) You need to install the UPDATE kit VMS83I_UPDATE-V0400.ZIPEXE
or onwards.

Check the following link for more details on how this update kit can solve

Hi Edward,

Also,
3) This problem can also be due to a hardware problem
Check the following link -
http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/System-Management/Integrity-Server-requires-date-and-time-entry-on-each-boot/m-p/4626141#M26794

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Integrity-Servers/Hp-Integrity-rx2620-Date-Time-issue/m-p/4344487#M4761

I would suggest, you check the above options in the order (1), (2) and (3).

For option (2) above, the following command would list the patches installed on the system currently
$PRODUCT SHOW HISTORY

Once you try out the above options, let us know the root cause for the problem.

Re: rx2660+vms8.3 need input time in everytimes bootup

Hi Edward,

>> sysgen>show settime is 0
SETTIME is set to 0 means the Option (1) above is ruled out.

From the output of "$PRODUCT SHOW HISTORY", you have only
VMS83I_UPDATE V1.0 installed.
>> HP I64VMS VMS83I_UPDATE V1.0 Patch Install Val 15-DEC-2006
You can consider installing the VMS83I_UPDATE-V0400 patch (or onwards)
if the problem still persists.

>> strangely , if you input 2010 time before, then after bootup, no need
>> input time again.
You mean to say that if you set the time corresponding to 2010 year then you
wont get the prompt to enter date and time every time during boot.
However if you set the time corresponding to the 2011 year then you would
always get the prompt to enter date and time every time during boot
Is this correct ?
