The Answer is :
All installations of OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-1H1 and V7.1-1H2 were intended
to be upgraded after the OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 release was available.
The OpenVMS Wizard STRONGLY encourages you to upgrade to V7.1-2 (at the
absolute minimum), or (better) to upgrade to V7.2-2, or (best) to V7.3-1
(or more current, as available).
Continued use of releases such as OpenVMS Alpha V7.1, V7.1-1H1 and V7.1-1H2
means you do not see the benefits and the updates and the corrections that
are found in subsequent OpenVMS releases.
The minimum version of OpenVMS Alpha for the DE600 series controller is
OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2, with the current mandatory kits and the current LAN
and/or hardware ECO kits (as available) installed. For information on
the Prior Version Support (PVS) releases and on the OpenVMS release(s)
with Current Version Support, please see the OpenVMS FAQ.
