Installing Shareable Images with Privileges?

» close window

The Question is:

I do an install on a code file:
$ install create/priv=(sysprv,bypass)  <filename>
Then I do:
$   install list <filename>
and I get
   <filename>       Open              Prv
It seems to recognize that I set PRIVILEGED, but it doesn't get the specific
 attributes (SYSPRV and BYPASS).  This is verified when I try to run the
 program to access a file that it can't see unless it has BYPASS (at least),
 and it can't see it.  It truly
 doesn't have BYPASS.
I have CMKRNL when I do this, so I should be able to do the install, and VMS
 doesn't complain.  Can you see what I'm missing?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard will assume that the image in question is a shareable
  image and not an executable image.  If so, please see the information on
  image installation included in the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions
  (FAQ), and please also see the shareable image cookbook.  Links to the
  FAQ and to the shareable image cookbook document are available on the
  main page of the Ask The Wizard website.
