The Question is:
Is it possible to do a direct upgrade from UCX 3.3 to TCPIP V5.3? I've seen
other questions mentioning UCX should be removed first. My Installation and
Configuration guide mentioned nothing of this.
After the installation I noticed the FTP and Portmapper startups were
failing. After investigating I found they were still using the old startup
files in the [UCX$FTP] and [UCX$PORTM] directories. These files were still
pointing to SYS$SYSTEM:UCX$FTPD
..EXE and SYS$SYSTEM:UCX$PORTMAPPER.EXE. Now these files no longer exist and
have been replaced by TCPIP$FTP_SERVER.EXE and TCPIP$PORTMAPPER>EXE.
There are no startup files in the [TCPIP$FTP] and [TCPIP$PORTM] directories.
I verified I'm running the TCPIP$STARTUP.COM file and not the
UCX$STARTUP.COM. This leads me to believe I may have needed to move up to
another version of UCX before install
ing TCPIP V5.3.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would not typically attempt a direct upgrade
over this long a span of TCP/IP Services releases -- two major
releases -- and is sufficiently old that it was likely not tested
during the V5.3 upgrade testing. (Two major releases is a long
direct upgrade, and not one that the OpenVMS Wizard would typically
expect to work.)
