Distributed Lock Manager: $enq?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there any change in the behaviour of sys$enq() or sys$enqw() between
version 7.1-2 and 7.2-1 of the VMS operating system?
There are no Release notes for VMS 7.2-1 available on the OpenVMS web pages.
 Where can I find it?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 New Features and Release Notes Manual
  is available at the documentation website.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is not aware of any particularly significant
  changes to the user API for the distributed lock manager for V7.2
  or V7.2-1, though there were certainly changes made to the locking
  data structures and the data structure storage and related system
  parameters that were included in OpenVMS V7.2.
  Since you have not mentioned the problem, no specific answer is
  possible.  After checking for the usual sorts of problems that can
  arise in a program -- see topic 1661 for a list -- please contact
  the Compaq Customer Support Center directly for assistance.
