The Question is:
I'm going to upgrade DCPS to V2.1 for Alpha (I need support for Genicom mL450).
At the moment, I have OVMS AXP V7.2-1 (with patches) and can't immediately
upgrade to V 7.2-2. To my big surprise, OVMS AXP V7.2-1 is _NOT_ supported for
DCPS V2.1 while V7.2-
2 _IS_ supported. Local Compaq support told me, that may simply be due to the
fact that V7.2-1 is no longer supported and therefore nobody wants to spend
time checking such combination. Is that so? Or there are some known DCPS V2.1
issues with V7.2-1 that
don't apply to V7.2-2?
The Answer is :
While there are no known DCPS issues with OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1, the
OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1 release is no longer supported and was accordingly
not tested with DCPS and thus not listed in the DCPS documentation.
Information on supported OpenVMS releases -- including Prior Version
Support information and support plans and retirement schedules -- is
referenced in the OpenVMS FAQ.
