Determining Year 2000 Readiness of EIP and NAS Package Components

The EIP (Enterprise Integration Package) and NAS (Network Application Support) packages were created to help customers who purchase workstation and server systems obtain many of the layered products they need in one package.

To this end, several configurations of EIP and NAS packages were designed. Each package consists of the licenses for a set of software product components. Customers can then select these components from the Software Product Library (SPL) that ships quarterly.

The Year 2000 readiness of any EIP or NAS package is entirely dependent on which versions of the components you have installed on your system. When the versions of the EIP or NAS components that you have installed are all Year 2000 ready, then you can consider your EIP or NAS package to be Year 2000 ready.

If you purchased an EIP or NAS package, follow these steps to determine the Year 2000 readiness of your package components:

  1. Consult the table for the EIPNAS (VAX), or NAS(Alpha)  package that you purchased to determine which components are licensed in that package.

  2. Check your system to see which of the licensed components you have installed. Also note the latest installed version of each component.

  3. Look up each EIPNAS (VAX), or NAS (Alpha) component in the tables to determine whether your installed version is Year 2000 ready. The tables identify the earliest version of each component to provide Year 2000 support. If you have installed the listed version or a subsequent version, your component is Year 2000 ready. In a few, footnoted cases, you must install a kit to achieve Year 2000 readiness.


    For some products, one or more older versions are also listed as Year 2000 ready. In such cases, Year 2000 readiness should not be assumed for unlisted, intervening versions. For example, many products are listed as Year 2000 ready for Versions 5.5-2, 6.2, and 7.1. All versions later than 7.1 are also Year 2000 ready, but older, unlisted versions such as 6.0 or 7.0 have not been tested and cannot be assumed to be Year 2000 ready.

  4. If the version of the component you have installed is not Year 2000 ready, check the EIPNAS (VAX), or NAS (Alpha) table to determine when a Year 2000 ready version started shipping on the Software Product Library (SPL) or, in some cases, with the OpenVMS operating system. Then install that version or a later Year 2000 ready version.

    If you do not subscribe to the Software Product Library and need a new software version, contact your Compaq support representative.
