OpenVMS: Pause


In the process of upgrading my cluster from OpenVMS 9.2-1 to 9.2-2, I didn’t follow the instructions as well as I should have done, and inadvertently missed the option to remain on DECNet Phase IV. Much embarassment.

This is both good and bad. Bad because I’m going to need to go back to first principles in setting things up. Good, because in doing that I’ll write a better guide.

The silver lining is, because readers will be starting on 9.2-2 now, you won’t miss this option. And I sure as heck will highlight it in upgrade guides!
