The VSI OpenVMS Guide to Media can be found at: http://h30266.www3.hp.com/ODLIndex.asp.

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.
