Hello.

I have a cluster with 3 nodes. On first node command REPLY/ENABLE is making this result "An illegal operator request was made". On the other nodes is working normally. I cannot find the problem. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Re: An illegal operator request was made

Vaclav,

Mostly this error is issued when the requestor does NOT have OPER priv active.

Could it be that on the first not you NOT have it, while on the others you DO?

Proost.

Have one on me.

Hi vaclav,

Generally these errors are coming when you have already enable the opcom.

first try with reply/disable and then try reply/enable.

Re: An illegal operator request was made

Doelzel,

Please show the output from SHOW PROCESS/PRIVILEGE on the node generating the error message.

It is possible that while the account is authorized for OPER, it is not enabled by default.

Re: An illegal operator request was made

Vaclav,

if you really have the OPER priv active, then matbe the OPCOM process is not running?

$ SHOW SYSTEM/PROC=OPCOM

If not, then as user SYSTEM (batch job?) execute

$ @SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP OPCOM

Proost.

Re: An illegal operator request was made

login from system account...
then check opcom is running or not..
(show system/proc=opcom)
if it is available,stop that process ...
(stop/id=xxxxxxx)
and restart the opcom process from system account with the following command...
@sys$system:startup opcom

and then check have got any messages in the operator.log file and then

reply/ena
reply/log
reply/dis

and check whether new operator.log file created or not and what is the size of the last operator.log file.

Re: An illegal operator request was made

Stupid, perhaps, but what is the output of

$ show sym rep*

I've run into unexpected results due to the fact that symbols overrules standard commands...

Re: An illegal operator request was made
