    VSI OpenVMS Layered Products Library and Operating Environment 
                                 Update


This section provides getting started instructions for the Layered 
Products Library and the Operating Environment Update.


1. Mounting the media for the Layered Products Library or 
   Operating Environment Update.

   Mount the DVD/CD-ROM by entering the MOUNT command in the 
   following format: 

   $ MOUNT/SYSTEM device volume label        Where device is the 
                                             name of the media 
                                             device, volume label 
                                             is the 12-character 
                                             volume label located 
                                             on the face of the 
                                             disc. 

   For example:  $ MOUNT/SYSTEM DQA400: VSI_volume_label





2. Accessing a Software DVD/CD-ROM 

   Products on the Layered Products Library and Operating 
   Environment Update DVD/CD-ROM contain directories for each 
   product. These directories contain save sets of the binary 
   images included in the software product and product installation 
   documentation.  Each product directory begins with a name unique 
   for that product.

   Table 2-1 shows the structure of the Layered Products Library
   and Operating Environment Update DVD/CD-ROM.  

   For each product, the name of the root directory usually 
   corresponds to the name of the product save set. The product 
   save sets are located in the KIT subdirectory. Documentation is 
   located in the DOCUMENTATION subdirectory.

_________________________________________________________________________


3. Release Notes and Other Documentation  

   Release notes for layered products are included in the kits and may 
   be retrieved by entering the appropriate command in the VMSINSTAL 
   utility or the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility. 

   Other product documentation, not listed in Table 2-1, is available 
   in two ways:

     On the VSI Layered Products and VSI Operating Environments 
      Products DVD/CD-ROMs.
     At http://h30266.www3.hp.com/ODLIndex.asp.


4. Printing the Documents

   You can print the documentation for the Layered Products Library or 
   Operating Environment Update by entering an operating system command. 
   You do not need a product license to print these documents.  

   See the VSI OpenVMS Guide to Media for pointers to product directory 
   specifications or go to http://h30266.www3.hp.com/ODLIndex.asp. 

   To print a document in Table 2-1 with text output, send the file to an 
   ASCII printer by entering a command in one of the following formats:

   $ PRINT/QUEUE=queue_ANSI device:[README]file-name.TXT 
   $ PRINT/QUEUE=queue_ANSI device:[product.DOCUMENTATION]file-name.TXT

   To print a document from the [product.DOCUMENTATION] directory with 
   PostScript output, send the file to a PostScript printer by entering 
   the command in the following format: 

   $ PRINT/QUEUE=queue_POST device:[product.DOCUMENTATION]file-name.PS

   In the preceding examples, device represents the name of the drive 
   on which you have placed your Layered Products Library or Operating 
   Environment Update DVD/CD-ROM.


5. Installing Layered Products

   This section describes how to install layered products on a VSI OpenVMS 
   on Integrity Servers system.        


5.1 Location of Product Save Sets and Installation Instructions

    The VSI OpenVMS Guide to Media document lists the directory 
    locations of the Layered Products and OE Update products on their 
    respective media.  The VSI OpenVMS Guide to Media can be found at:
    http://h30266.www3.hp.com/ODLIndex.asp.  Select the desired VSI OS 
    release, choose the icon for "Operating Systems", then click on 
    "VSI OpenVMS Operating System".  The supporting OS documents will 
    be listed on this page.
 
    If available, installation information for each product is located 
    in the [product.DOCUMENTATION] directories, where product is the 
    product directory name, as given in the VSI OpenVMS Guide to Media.


5.2 Installation Methods

    Install layered products using one of the following methods:   

      Using the VMSINSTAL utility.  
      Using the POLYCENTER Software Installation utility.
 

5.2.1  Using VMSINSTAL

       Individual layered product kits are located in their own 
       directory hierarchies.  For this reason, when you install a 
       layered product, you must use a VMSINSTAL command line that 
       is slightly different from the one given in the product's 
       installation guide.

       When you enter the VMSINSTAL command line, specify the disc 
       drive and the directory by entering a command in the 
       following format:

       $ @SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL product drive:[directory.KIT]

       For example:

       $ @SYS$UPDATE:VMSINSTAL AVAILMAN DQA400:[AVAILMAN.KIT]  

       Additionally, certain system privileges must be enabled before 
       you run VMSINSTAL. You must be logged in to a privileged account 
       (such as the system manager's account, SYSTEM) that has the 
       SETPRV privilege or at least the following privileges enabled:

         CMKRNL
         SYSPRV 
         WORLD

       To check whether your process has SETPRV or other privileges 
       enabled, enter the following command:

       $ SHOW PROCESS/PRIVILEGES 


5.2.2 Using the POLYCENTER Software Installation Utility

      Some products can be installed using the POLYCENTER Software 
      Installation utility.  Not all products are available with this 
      installation technology.  

      Use a command in the following format to install one or more 
      software products that support installations by means of 
      POLYCENTER Software Installation utility:  

      $ PRODUCT INSTALL product   /SOURCE=disc_drive:-
        [directory.KIT]

      For example:

      $ PRODUCT INSTALL DCE   /SOURCE=DQA400:[DCE.KIT]

      Additionally, certain system privileges must be enabled before 
      you install products. You must be logged in to a privileged 
      account (such as the system manager's account, SYSTEM) that has 
      at least the following privileges enabled: 

        CMKRNL 
        SYSLCK 
        SYSPRV

      To check whether your process has these privileges enabled, 
      enter the following command:
 
      $ SHOW PROCESS/PRIVILEGES  

      To see whether a previous version of a product is installed, 
      use the PRODUCT SHOW PRODUCT command.  For example:

      $ PRODUCT SHOW PRODUCT FORTRAN

      Refer to the product's installation guide for more information 
      on installing products using the POLYCENTER Software 
      Installation utility.  

      To use other features of the POLYCENTER Software Installation 
      utility, see the POLYCENTER Software Installation Utility 
      User's Guide.
