VMSINSTAL Manual??

Post by Matthew J. St » Tue, 27 Jul 1993 23:33:25



Greetings...

I seem to remember seeing a reference somewhere to a manual that described
how to create your own kits to be used with VMSINSTAL.  I've scoured the
gray wall for such a reference, but I'm not sure that's where I saw it.
Any ideas?

Thanx..
Matt

The V6.0 book is called "OpenVMS Developer's Guide to VMSINSTAL", May 1993,
order number AA-PWBXA-TE.  Call 1-800-DIGITAL to order it if you don't have
it in your doc set.

The "Developer's Guide to VMSINSTAL" is not included in the standard
"gray wall" documentation set.  It can be ordered separately, or you can find
it on the online documentation CD-ROM under "VMS Operating System, Programming
and Utility Documentation".  This manual has been updated for OpenVMS VAX V6.0.

If you wish to order it, the current manual name and order number is:

 OpenVMS Developer's Guide to VMSINSTAL         AA-PWBXA-TE

        It's an extra that's not in the standard Grey Wall.  It is on ConDist,
and is an orderable item...  Can't remember the order number, though...

I am not sure if this is the manual you are refering to, but it looks like with
the "White Wall" that I have just received, there is a thin manual called...
OpenVMS Developer's Guide to VMSINSTAL, Part# AA-PWBXA-TE.  We did not have
this manual with our Grey Wall.

It's interesting that Digital is now shipping this guide at no extra charge.
For years, VMSINSTAL was the only "real" way to install software.  Now that
SPIA has been shown at Decus in Atlanta and will be used for most installations
starting with VMS 6.1 next spring (and SPIA looks fantastic too!), the
VMSINSTAL manual becomes free. Hmmm....

It is part of the standard White Wall (OpenVMS VAX V6.0 documentation set).
