You can install or upgrade the OpenVMS I64 operating system or you can install or upgrade layered products that are included on the OpenVMS I64 distribution media (CD/DVD).
You can also execute DCL commands and procedures to perform "standalone" tasks, such as backing up the system disk.
Please choose one of the following:
1) Upgrade, install or reconfigure OpenVMS I64 Version 8.3 2) Display layered products that this procedure can install 3) Install or upgrade layered products 4) Show installed products 5) Reconfigure installed products 6) Remove installed products 7) Find, Install, or Undo patches; Show or Delete recovery data 8) Execute DCL commands and procedures 9) Shut down this system

At the triple dollar sign prompt ($$$), enter the SHOW
Examine the list of devices to determine which device
is the source drive (the system disk you want to back up) and which
device is the target drive (the supported disk or tape device that
will hold the backed up files).
After you determine the source drive and target drive, mount
those devices (and any other output devices you plan to use) before
you perform any backup operations. Enter the MOUNT commands in
the following format:
The BACKUP/IMAGE command maintains a set of disk volume parameters
from the input volume, altering attributes such as the disk volume
cluster size as appropriate for the target device. (Cluster size
refers to the basic unit of space allocation on the disk, not to
OpenVMS Cluster environments.)
To change the disk volume cluster size, you must restore the
disk contents to a disk that has been previously initialized with
the desired cluster size (using BACKUP/IMAGE/NOINITIALIZE). For
more information about initializing a disk and using the BACKUP
command, see the HP OpenVMS System Manager's Manual, Volume 1: Essentials and the HP OpenVMS System Management Utilities Reference Manual: A--L,
and see the description of the INITIALIZE and BACKUP commands in
the HP OpenVMS DCL Dictionary.
Logging Out, Shutting
Down, and Rebooting
After you complete the backup operation:
Enter the LOGOUT command to exit the DCL
environment and return to the menu.
Choose the shutdown option (9).
After the shutdown completes, boot from the system disk.
