Before you perform an installation or an upgrade, you should have received a PMDF distribution kit. This kit contains the distribution media and all necessary license PAKs. You can install any PMDF layered product even if you do not currently have a PAK for it: you just will not be able to use that layered product until you have registered and loaded the proper PAK.
1.1.1 Distribution Media
PMDF for Tru64 UNIX is distributed on a single CD-ROM that contains
Tru64 UNIX, OpenVMS, NT, and Solaris distributions of PMDF. Also
included on the CD-ROM are all the PMDF layered products, including
PMDF-TLS which is no longer in a separate kit. Specifically, the
distribution for the PMDF Tru64 UNIX product family includes the
The CD-ROM is an ISO 9660 with Rockridge extensions CD-ROM, which is readable from many different platforms.
Prior to the installation, insert the CD-ROM into a CD-ROM drive that is accessible to the system. It should be mounted according to the following:
# cd / # mount -t cdfs -o noversion,rrip file-system directory
file-systemis the drive of the CD-ROM device, and
directoryis the location in the file tree where you want to attach the PMDF distribution files. For example, if your CD-ROM device is located on the
rz4cdisk and you want to put the PMDF distribution files under
/mnt,you would use the following commands:
# cd / # mount -t cdfs -o noversion,rrip /dev/rz4c /mnt
PMDF subsets for the Tru64 UNIX installation are located under the
/OSF1-Alpha/PMDF621 directory on the CD-ROM. Therefore, in
the above example, the subsets are located under
The PMDF online documentation is located in the
/documentation directory on the CD-ROM. These files can
also be installed to disk during the PMDF installation.
Once the PMDF distribution files have been mounted, follow the
setld installation instructions that are documented in
Section 1.4. Or, if you move the PMDF product subsets to disk, install
PMDF from that on-disk copy, specifying the path to the subsets'
directory as the location argument to
