The Question is:
What is a VMIMARKER*.DAT file, and why does our startup try to execute
vmsinstal using it as a parameter ?
For example, this is in our startup.log:
$t = f$search("sys$update:vmimarker*.dat")
$if t .eqs. "" then goto cs10
$@sys$update:vmsinstal "" "" options B "" ""
The Answer is :
These VMSMARKER files are marker files that are quite deliberately
maintained on an OpenVMS system as a result of an incomplete VMSINSTAL
installation sequence. OpenVMS will attempt to complete the (failed)
installation. For details:
