Description
Many system managers locate their local environment modifications in SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM. While this approach works, it can lead to failures, divergence between cluster members, loss of efficiency, maintenance problems, and other hazards. The OpenVMS Layered Products STARTUP database provides far better methods to integrate local user setups into the STARTUP sequence. We will review the details of how STARTUP.COM works, and how the STARTUP database can be leveraged to improve the flexibility, reliability and speed of reboots.
