HP OpenVMS Version 8.3 Upgrade and Installation Manual > Chapter 6 Upgrading the OpenVMS Operating System

What to Do After Shutdown

  Table of Contents



After an OpenVMS Alpha system shuts down, you can make the newly upgraded system disk the default boot device, if necessary, and then boot the system disk. After an OpenVMS I64 system shuts down, you can add and validate a boot option for the newly upgraded system disk, using the OpenVMS I64 Boot Manager utility, and then boot the newly upgraded system disk. For either operating system, AUTOGEN runs automatically, after which the system shuts down again and automatically reboots. If you are doing a concurrent or rolling upgrade in an OpenVMS Cluster environment, do not boot any other cluster members now.

Now go to Chapter 7 “After Installing or Upgrading the OpenVMS Operating System” and check for any postupgrade tasks that need to be performed before the system and cluster can be used. Once you have completed all required postupgrade tasks, you can reboot and then use other cluster members.
