Resetting System Parameters?

» close window

The Question is:


I used the following command to debug VMS startup.

set /startup opa0:
set window_system 0
I forgot to set writesysparams 0
therefore evertime I boot vms I have to run an interactive boot process.
How DO I DISABLE THIS and return to normal boot process

The Answer is :

  You will want to consider reversing the steps involved when you forget
  to SET WRITESYSPARAMS 0, when you next bootstrap the system.  Specifically,
  follow the conversational bootstrap sequence (please see the OpenVMS FAQ)
  and set (at least) the following system parameter values:
  Since you want these values to be saved in this particular case, you can
  leave the WRITESYSPARAMS system parameter alone, and directly CONTINUE.
  (You want these system parameter changes to be saved, of course.)
  You could also invoke AUTOGEN, though this assumes you have tracked all
  system parameter changes in MODPARAMS.DAT -- while this is recommended,
  it is only "enforced" when AUTOGEN is next run and resets the system
  parameter values -- those not tracked in MODPARAMS.DAT -- to potentially
  unexpected values.
