How to install OpenVMS Management Station

The Question is:

How do I install OpenVMS Management Station?

This afternoon I discovered that Management Station also works with TCP/IP,
so I downloaded the PC Client and the Server for Alpha.
The installation of the server gives the following problems:
After having checked that VMS is registered in the POLYCENTER
product database:
     $ prod sho prod vms
     PCSI-I-IOPPDB, additional information last updated 13-FEB-1996 in DISK$AXPVMS:[

     1 item found

I tried to install Management Station. I defined PCSI$SOURCE,
and started the installation, with the following result:

     $product install tnt/version=V1.5

     %PCSI-E-APPLYTOERR, product DEC AXPVMS VMS to which maintenance product DEC AXPV
     MS TNT V1.5 applies not found
     Terminating is strongly recommended.  Do you want to terminate? [YES]

Do you have any idea what's wrong?
Thanks in advance for your reaction.

The Answer is:

    You need to get a hold of "OpenVMS Management Station Installation Guide"
    AA-Q9AYA-TE, and read chapter 1 wich explains what to do in this case.
    The installation guid should also be on the distribution media.
