I began upgrading a DEC 3000 Alpha Server on Thursday from OpenVms 7.1
to 7.2-1. The server was running UCX 4.2 and DecNet Phase IV.
I ran the upgrade and the OS portion loaded without a problem. I then
upgraded UCX to TCPIP050A, again no problem, I have TCP/IP.
I applied the VMS721_UPDATE-V0100 patch, again no problem.
I then set out to upgrade my DecNet to DECNET-PLUS-V7_2. This is
where the problem began. The first thing it did was complain that
GBLSECTIONS, GBLPAGES, GBLPAGFIL and KSTACKPAGES were to low.
I was able to modify the first 3, but it is not letting me set the
KSTACKPAGES. I have tried editing the ModParams.dat file and have
included both MIN_KSTACKPAGES=2 and KSTACKPAGES=2. Then reboot the
system. When I look at tha params after the reboot it goes back to
DecNet is giving me the error Net$Startup-F-NOREQSYSGEN, SYSGEN
parameters not at required values.
I have also installed the DNVOSI072ECO01 patch for Decnet.
When installing this file the firs thing that happened was the
The following product will be installed to destination:
DEC AXPVMS DNVOSIECO01 V7.2 DISK$ALPHASYS:[VMS$COMMON.]
%PCSI-I-RETAIN, file [SYSLIB]DTSS$SHR.EXE was not replaced because
file from kit has lower generation number
Can someone please give me some ideas of what I need to do next and
what I need to do to get the KSTACKPAGE to hold.
