The Question is:
How do I convert the VAX-VMS queue manager
to the new supplied with version 6.2
The Answer is :
OpenVMS VAX V6.2 has no choice but to run using the new queue manager.
The only OpenVMS VAX releases where the queue manager was selectable
were A5.5, A5.5-1, A5.5-2HW (-2HW was an early -2) A5.5-2, and A5.5-2H4.
These older releases used the old queue manager, and the conversion from
these to the equivalent V5.5, V5.5-1, V5.5-2HW, V5.5-2, and V5.5-2H4
converted over to the new queue manager. The queue manager conversion
uses the tool:
From the OpenVMS VAX V6.0 upgrade documentation:
o Before you can upgrade to OpenVMS VAX Version 6.0, your system
must be running at least Version V5.5 of the VMS operating
system. For example, you can upgrade a system disk to Version 6.0
of the OpenVMS VAX operating system from any of the following
versions (or related hardware releases):
VMS Version V5.5
VMS Version V5.5-1
VMS Version V5.5-2
You cannot upgrade to OpenVMS VAX Version 6.0 from a VMS Version
A5.5, A5.5-1, or A5.5-2 system. To convert an A5.5 system to a
Version V5.5 system, do the following:
1. Log in to the SYSTEM account.
2. Enter the following command to execute the
SYS$UPDATE:VMS$UPGRADE_A55_V55.COM command procedure:
3. Answer YES to the following question:
Do you wish to convert queues now ? (YES,NO,ABORT) YES
4. When the command procedure completes, reboot your system.
You can now upgrade to OpenVMS VAX Version 6.0.
