  Table 2-13: Configuring POLYCENTER Scheduler for a Mixed-Architecture OpenVMS Cluster



  Step Action

  1. Install POLYCENTER Scheduler on the VAX system as described in
Section 2.12.1.
  2 The installation procedure for POLYCENTER Scheduler creates a directory named NSCHED.
  2. While located in the NSCHED directory, create a new directory named VAX:
          $ SET DEFAULT SYS$SYSDEVICE:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED]
          $ CREATE/DIRECTORY [.VAX]
  3. Move all of the .EXE and .OLB files from the directory NSCHED to the new VAX directory:
          $ RENAME *.EXE,*.OLB [.VAX]
          Example of the new VAX directory:

          Directory SYS$SYSDEVICE:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED.VAX]
          DB_UTILITY.EXE;1 NSCHED.EXE;1 NSCHED_SUBS.OLB;1
          RETRY.EXE;1
          SCHED$GET_BEST_NODE.EXE;1 SCHED$LISTENER.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$DOO_COMMAND.EXE;1 SCHEDULER$INTERFACE.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$MANAGER.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$SHELL_INTERFACE.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$SUMMARIZE_LOG.EXE;1 SCHED_DECNET.EXE;1
          SCHED_REMOTE.EXE;1
          VSS_REPORTS.EXE;1
  4. Install POLYCENTER Scheduler on the Alpha system as described in Section 2.12.2.
  5. While located in the NSCHED directory, create a new directory named ALPHA:
          $ SET DEF SYS$SYSDEVICE:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED]
          $ CREATE/DIRECTORY [.ALPHA]

  Step Action



  6. Move all of the .EXE and .OLB files from the directory NSCHED to the new ALPHA directory:
          $ RENAME *.EXE,*.OBL [.ALPHA]
          Example of the ALPHA directory:

          Directory SYS$SYSDEVICE:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED.ALPHA]
          AXP_NSCHED_SUBS.OLB;1 DB_UTILITY.EXE;1
          NSCHED.EXE;1
          RETRY.EXE;1 SCHED$GET_BEST_NODE.EXE;1
          SCHED$LISTENER.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$DOO_COMMAND.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$INTERFACE.EXE;1 SCHEDULER$MANAGER.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$SHELL_INTERFACE.EXE;1
          SCHEDULER$SUMMARIZE_LOG.EXE;1
          SCHED_DECNET.EXE;1 SCHED_RTL.EXE;1 VSS_REPORTS.EXE;1
  7. Edit the file SYS$STARTUP:SCHEDULER$STARTUP.COM on the VAX system and and define the
          logical NSCHED$ as a search list:
          $! define/system/exec NSCHED$ SYS$COMMON:[NSCHED]
          $! previous line commented out and replaced with the following
          $! search list definition:
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED$ DISK$VAXVMSV71:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED], -
                                            DISK$VAXVMSV71:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED.VAX]
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED_DEFAULT_SD_ACTION SKIP
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED$REMOTE_SUPPORT_ENABLED "TRUE"
  8. Edit the file SYS$STARTUP:SCHEDULER$STARTUP.COM on the Alpha system and and define the
          logical NSCHED$ as a search list:
          $! define/system/exec NSCHED$ SYS$COMMON:[NSCHED]
          $! previous line commented out and replaced with the following
          $! search list definition:
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED$ DISK$VAXVMSV71:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED], -
                                            DISK$VAXVMSV71:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED.ALPHA]
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED_DEFAULT_SD_ACTION SKIP
          $ define/system/exec NSCHED$REMOTE_SUPPORT_ENABLED "TRUE"
  9. Issue the shutdown and startup commands for POLYCENTER Scheduler to redefine the logical
          name NSCHED$:
          $ @DISK$VAXVMSV71:[VMS$COMMON.NSCHED]SCHEDULER$SHUTDOWN
          $ @SYS$COMMON:[SYS$STARTUP]SCHEDULER$STARTUP
