Ext File Specs, Overview, Considerations

ODS-5 is being introduced primarily to provide enhanced file sharing capabilities for users of Advanced Server for OpenVMS 7.2 (formerly known as PATHWORKS for OpenVMS), as well as DCOM and JAVA applications. System managers must understand the impact of an ODS-5 environment before enabling it for general users. It is essential that system managers perform the following steps before enabling ODS-5: o Review all ODS-5 restrictions. o Understand the support levels for different OpenVMS applications. o Segregate applications that do not support ODS-5 or have not been tested with ODS-5 names or volumes. NOTE It is recommended that you enable ODS-5 disks in a homogeneous OpenVMS Version 7.2 (and later) Alpha cluster only.
