Reboot (always) requires AUTOGEN?

» close window

The Question is:

After upgrading to VMS 7.2 I always get a request to run AUTOGEN
whenever the system needs to be rebooted or restarted.  How can I remove this?

The Answer is :

  How?  By resetting the system parameter value that is considered to
  be insufficient, and specifically by editing MODPARAMS.DAT and then
  (re)running AUTOGEN.
  The OpenVMS Wizard will guess this is DECwindows that is triggering
  the request -- there was a case where the parameter value the check
  required was greater than the corresponding update that was made to
  the parameter setting -- and thus you can examine the particular
  system parameter requirements of DECwindows by the unsupported (but
  very simple) technique looking at a component file of the DECwindows
  You could also read the documentation for system parameter requirements
  for the various installed products, as products other than DECwindows
  can trigger a requirement for specific parameter settings.
