The Question is:
How do I find information regrading the minimum palcode version that supports
alpha 7.3-1 on various hardware platform (.eg. ES40, alphaserver 1200)
The Answer is :
In general, the installation and upgrade documentation for each
release contains this and other related prerequisite information,
but (as usual) you will want to install the current Alpha firmware
(SRM PALcode) for the particular platform.
For details and SRM firmware documentation and for the firmware
itself, please see the firmware website referenced in the OpenVMS
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
The AlphaStation XP1000 series does erroneously generate an SRM
firmware version warning when bootstrapping with OpenVMS Alpha
V7.3-1. So long as you are running the most recent Alpha firmware
version available for the AlphaStation XP1000, the system will
operate correctly with OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1 and the warning can
be ignored. See the release notes and support databases for
details on this problem, and see the Alpha firmware website for
the current firmware.
