ARCHIVE TOOL

we have an archive tool in our environment. This is an emulated VAX machine. I'm pretty new to this environment and I'm not aware of this tool. Any document regarding this tool will be very help full

The tool is " WELCOME TO UIS-ARCHIVE TOOL (I.S.D.) "

The log file goes like the below. I can realise that somewhere this tool is trying to login via decnet. I'm not sure where it is trying to connect and what it is doing in the background.

$ ty pvab:[log]APH$ARC001_save.log
$ define arch$archive APH$ARC001/nolog
$!
$! first archive everything in the cache
$!
$ archive perform save/cache=flush
%LOG, APH$ARC001 archive selected
%LOG, [SAMUELJO] selected, but does not exist
%INFO, licensed for use by XXX XXXX
%SYS_WARN, error during DECNET remote task start
%INVLOGIN, login information invalid at remote node
%BADHNDERR, failure while communicating with media handler
%INFO, flushing queues
%LOG, process priority raised for duration of queues flush
%INFO, PERFORM SAVES completed, 0 files saved
$!
$! now archive andere save requests
$!
$ archive perform save
%LOG, APH$ARC001 archive selected
%LOG, [XXXXXX] selected, but does not exist
%INFO, licensed for use by XXX XXXX
%INFO, quotas are not enabled, scanning cache
%SYS_WARN, error during DECNET remote task start
%INVLOGIN, login information invalid at remote node
%BADHNDERR, failure while communicating with media handler
%INFO, flushing queues
%LOG, process priority raised for duration of queues flush
%INFO, PERFORM SAVES completed, 0 files saved
$ deass sys$output

It would appear that the DECnet task on the remote node isn't accepting a connection, perhaps due to a password problem.

Do you know the remote node?
Do you know the name of the username on the remote node that this application uses?

If YES to both of the above, then do a:

MC AUTHORIZE SHOW on that node

Have there been any changes recently relating to this? Possible removal of proxies, etc..

Does the ARCHIVE command point to a DCL command procedure? If so, post the contents up here.

Also, a $ SHOW LOG *ARCH* might be useful.

Re: ARCHIVE TOOL

Hi Craig,

Many thanks for your reply. Yes I'm trying to find which node this product is configured to connect to.

Please find the output you wanted.


$ SHOW LOG *ARCH*

(LNM$PROCESS_TABLE)

(LNM$JOB_902D13E0)

(LNM$GROUP_000727)

(LNM$SYSTEM_TABLE)

"ARCH$CACHE" = "DISK$FPO04S:[ARCHIVE.CACHE.]"
"ARCH$LOGGING" = "TRUE"
"ARCH$NOSPAWN" = "TRUE"
"ARCH$ONLINE" = "DISK$FPO04S:[ARCHIVE.ONLINE.]"
"ARCH$QUEUES" = "DISK$FPO04S:[ARCHIVE.QUEUES.]"
"ARCHIVE_IMG" = "SYS$ARCHIVE:[MASTER.VAX]"
"SYS$ARCHIVE" = "DISK$FPO00S:[ARCHIVE.]"

(DECW$LOGICAL_NAMES)
$


And also...

when i get in to this utility


$ archive
%LOG, TST$ARC001 archive selected
%LOG, [XXXXXX] selected, but does not exist
Archive> help

Information available:

ATTACH Auto_archiving Batch BECOME CANCEL CREATE
DECnet DELETE DIRECTORY Errors EXIT General GENERATE
HELP LIST Logical_names Media_Librarian
Obsolete_cmds Operator_hints PERFORM PURGE RECALL
REMOVE RENAME RESTORE SAVE SET SHOW SPAWN
Specify STATUS SYNCHRONIZE Sys_mgr_hints
User_hints V42_changes V50_changes V51_changes
V52_changes VERSION


I get my username XXXXXX selected but does not exist as a message.

So I believe somewhere my username has to be added in this utility.

Re: ARCHIVE TOOL

It migh tbe worth vaing a trawl through the system startup and shutdown command procedures to see if there is a startup/shutdown procedure for this product(obviously something, somewhere is defining the logicals)

Have a search for node and :: through said procedures and post the output here.

Re: ARCHIVE TOOL

Is there anything in the local operator.log or the system audit file at the time of this failure?

What version of VMS is it?

Also, post the output of:

$ SET PROC/PRIV=(ALL,NETMBX,SYSPRV,NOBYPASS)
$ MC NCP SHO KNO OBJ

Re: ARCHIVE TOOL

Hi Craig,

Many thanks for you time and help on this.

I have found this thing. Actually there is a command $ archive show media/handler

and this listed me the remote node which this utility was trying to connect to.

i added a proxy there for my username and now everything is working perfectly.

Thanks again.

Re: ARCHIVE TOOL

$ Archive show media/handler

I found the remote node and added proxy in there.
