RP/MSQ 5.0 - RP20 - Problems installing Rolling Patch

Product:  MessageQ for OpenVMS, V5.0-RP20


When installing RP20, customer is running into some issues.

It seems that the installation opens a script file of some sort.

Following the start of the COM server, this script file inhibits the attaching of any other DMQ programto the COM
server - that includes the loader!
The only solution was to kill the user's session, and all files which were left open... then logging in again then
restarting the messageq group.


Problem can be corrected by modifying dmq$com_start.com and removing  "define/user_mode dmq$script no".  PSS
is attempting to open a file script file name "no" and cannot find it.  The PSS code only checks for 'N' in
the translation.  DCL has become case sensitive for some reason.  I have seen this before on lcvms0.

Customer requests:
That a corrected version of dmq$com_start.com be included in the rolling patch.  It is not necessary
to rebuild RP20, just that this be included in future rolling patches.
