The term PATHWORKS Advanced Server is used in this guide to refer to the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) file and print server. Mentions of Compaq OpenVMS file and print servers refers to the PATHWORKS family of file and print servers, including PATHWORKS (LAN Manager), PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare), PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server), and the Advanced Server for OpenVMS.
The following conventions are used in the PATHWORKS Advanced Server documentation:
|DECnet||Applies to both DECnet Phase IV and DECnet-Plus, unless otherwise specified.|
The use of italic text indicates a placeholder for information or
parameters that you must provide. For example, if the procedure asks
you to type
file name, you must type the actual name of a file.
Italic text also indicates new terms and the titles of other documentation referenced.
|monospace||The use of monospace text indicates actual commands and characters that you enter, and the system display.|
|Note||The use of Note provides information of special importance.|
|Caution||The use of Caution provides information to avoid damaging software or hardware.|
|Warning||The use of Warning provides information that is essential to people's safety.|
|...||A horizontal ellipsis following an entry in a command line indicates that the entry or a similar entry can be repeated any number of times. An ellipsis following a file name indicates that additional parameters, values, or information can be entered.|
A vertical ellipsis in an example indicates that not all the data is shown.
|Ctrl/ x||While you hold down the Ctrl key, press another key or a pointing device button.|
|Return or Enter||Return or Enter in text indicates where you should press the Return or Enter key to execute a command or terminate a sequence. This key is labeled Return or Enter, depending on your keyboard.|
In examples, a key name enclosed in a box indicates that you press a
key on the keyboard. (In text, a key name is not enclosed in a box.)
In the HTML version of this document, this convention appears as brackets, rather than a box.
|PF1 x||A sequence such as PF1 x indicates that you must first press and release the key labeled PF1 and then press and release another key or a pointing device button.|
This chapter describes the hardware and software you must have and the tasks you need to complete before you install PATHWORKS Advanced Server software.
This chapter consists of the following sections:
The PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) kit contains the software required to run the following software installation options:
The Upgrade utility helps you migrate from PATHWORKS (LAN Manager) to PATHWORKS V6 for OpenVMS (Advanced Server).
1.1.1 About the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare) Server
The PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare) server is no longer supported. PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) cannot be installed on a system where the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare) server is installed. If the installation procedure finds the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare) server, it optionally invokes the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare) removal procedure (PWVN$DEINSTAL), to remove the NetWare server software before installing the PATHWORKS Advanced Server software. For more information about the NetWare server removal procedure, refer to Section 7.2, Removing the PATHWORKS NetWare Server.
If your clients continue to depend on NetWare software to connect to
the system, or if you need the IPX/SPX transport for any reason, you
should designate a system to run the PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (NetWare)
1.2 If You Are Upgrading from PATHWORKS (LAN Manager)
If you have PATHWORKS (LAN Manager) installed, you must install the new
PATHWORKS Advanced Server. You can choose to install just the Upgrade utility
initially, and install the PATHWORKS Advanced Server later. Refer to the
Compaq PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) Server Migration Guide for more information.
1.3 Installing DECprint Software
DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS (DCPS) is a printing system that provides queue management and printing features for PostScript printers. To share a PostScript printer, selected PostScript printers might require use of the DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS (DCPS) software for communication with the printers over DECnet or TCP/IP.
If you plan to use DECprint Supervisor for OpenVMS on your system,
Compaq recommends that you install it before installing the
Advanced Server. You must reboot the system
after installing the DECprint software. You can perform the reboot as
part of the DECprint Supervisor installation procedure, or after you
install the Advanced Server but before you configure it.
1.4 About Licensing
The following sections describe the way the PATHWORKS Advanced Server software is
licensed, and how to ensure clients accessing the server are properly
1.4.1 License Requirements
The PATHWORKS Advanced Server requires that clients accessing file and print services be appropriately licensed. To conform to this requirement, one of the following must be true:
In either case, the license required to access PATHWORKS V6.1 for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) services is the PATHWORKS Client Access license: PWLMXXXCA07.03 or higher, or an equivalent client virtual license.
If you are upgrading from PATHWORKS LAN Manager, refer to the
Compaq PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) Server Migration Guide for information about upgrading client license requests.
1.4.2 About the License Server
The PATHWORKS License Server is an optional software program that you can run on your OpenVMS system to grant licenses to clients.
The License Server can be installed:
In either case, you can configure the License Server to support clients using any of the following network protocols:
Compaq recommends that you install the License Server on a designated OpenVMS system without the PATHWORKS file server. (The PATHWORKS Advanced Server installation procedure allows you to install the License Server separately from the file server.) Alternatively, you can run the License Server on an OpenVMS Cluster with PATHWORKS file and print servers, where cluster failover provides reliability.
Each LAN needs only one active PATHWORKS License Server. (The same License Server can support both PATHWORKS LAN Manager and PATHWORKS Advanced Server clients.) The license product authorization keys (PAKs) must be loaded on the system that runs the PATHWORKS License Server. In an OpenVMS Cluster, the PAKs must be loaded into a shared license database.

|Managing PATHWORKS Advanced Server licenses||Compaq Advanced Server for OpenVMS Guide to Managing Advanced Server Licenses|
External authentication is an optional feature of OpenVMS systems that allows system managers to set up user accounts for which login authentication is based on a security mechanism other than OpenVMS security.
The PATHWORKS Advanced Server takes advantage of this feature by providing the ability to use the PATHWORKS Advanced Server or Windows NT-compatible user authentication mechanisms to authenticate OpenVMS user logins. This allows users to log in at the OpenVMS login prompt using the PATHWORKS Advanced Server user name and password. In addition, it provides automatic password synchronization for user accounts.
When you install the complete PATHWORKS Advanced Server, the files required to support external authentication are automatically included in the installation process.
When you install the Advanced Server in an OpenVMS Cluster, if you want to enable external authentication on OpenVMS Cluster member nodes on which the server is not running and which share the same system disk, you can install the standalone external authentication software on that disk (without installing the Advanced Server software). On OpenVMS Version 7.1 Alpha and VAX cluster members, you must copy the external authentication files from a system on which the Advanced Server is installed to the OpenVMS Version 7.1 systems.
For more information about enabling external authentication, refer to
Section 5.6, Setting Up External Authentication.
1.6 Reading the Release Notes
The PATHWORKS Advanced Server installation kit includes the Compaq PATHWORKS for OpenVMS (Advanced Server) Release Notes. Compaq recommends that you read the release notes before starting the installation.
The installation procedure copies the release notes into the SYS$HELP: area, where they are available after server installation.
Use the following table to decide how to print the release notes:
|Desired Result||Required Steps|
|Print the release notes before the installation||
Do the following:
$ MOUNT device: PWRK
|Print the release notes during the installation||
Do the following:
The installation procedure prompts you to either print or display the release notes. In any case, the release notes are always copied to the SYS$HELP: area.
Appendix A, Installation and Upgrade Checklist, provides an installation and configuration summary
checklist. You can photocopy the summary checklist and use it to track
the completion of the installation and configuration tasks described in
1.8 Requirements for Installing PATHWORKS Advanced Server Software
The following sections describe the hardware and software that may be
required to install PATHWORKS Advanced Server on the system.
1.8.1 Hardware Requirements
