VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 patch (aka VMS732_UPDATE-V2000) doesnt install release notes in [vms$common.syshlp], as is/was the custom. So you find them here attached, for the record.

The difference between V20.0 (dec.2009) and V19.0 (june 2009) are these patches:

VMS732_DEBUG-V0300
VMS732_LAN-V0700
VMS732_SHADOWING-V0800
VMS732_SYS-V1800
VMS732_XFC-V0600

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

Apparently VMS732_UPDATE-V0200 does not have any release notes in the kit.

The release notes can be found at
ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/openvms_patches/alpha/V7.3-2/VMS732_UPDATE-V2000.txt

Do report this to HP

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

the kit VMS732_UPDATE-V2000 does contain release note files - I've just downloaded it and extracted them including

VMS732_UPDATE-V2000.RELEASE_NOTES

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

I agree with Jan. Maybe the kit contains the release notes but they are not installed:

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

Maybe there are two versions of this patch floating around. My version doesn't contain release notes for update v20.0. See attachment.

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

Oswald, there could be two versions floating around ....

MASTER ECO_LIST says
CURRENT UPDATE KIT RELEASE DATE
------------------ ------------
VMS732_UPDATE-V2000 04-DEC-2009

I downloaded "my version" on december 7.

But today, ftp.itrc.hp.com shows creation date 01/22/10 12:29AM [GMT] so January 22.

Could this be Another case of a patch kit being fixed but the version number remains the same :-(

Re: VMS732_UPDATE V20.0 doesnt install release notes

Ian,

The same happened for the latest VMS83I-1H1 Update 7 kit; the version I had was dated 5/12/2009 but the latest kit, which also contains the new HPC file plus the release note file is dated 21/1/2010!

As I said to my local support specialist and OpenVMS Ambassador, "NOT GOOD ENOUGH!"
