X Toolkit Error: Can't Open display
%DWT-F-DWTABORT, xtoolkit fatal error

Facility: X11

Meaning: These messages appear while running an application that creates an X11 terminal window. Running MULTINET X11DEBUG shows that the UCX driver was not loaded.

Action: Use MULTINET CONFIGURE with the SET LOAD-UCX-DRIVER TRUE command and reload the MultiNet server. When you complete these steps, run X11DEBUG to ensure all tests pass.

Your psychic powers must be much stronger
than mine. I don't even know the VMS version
on this system, but you know which IP
software it's running.

Then you may not be able to use the "NET$MGMT
utility [which] provides a hierarchical
graphical approach to the management of
DECnet-Plus." (Note: "graphical".)

I'd install DECwindows, or else try to use a
tool with a command-line interface.

If offered a clue as to what you wanted to
do, then you might get some more concrete
suggestions.

Re: Can't run MCR NET$MGMT in Alpha DS10 system.

Anjan,
both Decnet and Multinet are completely irrelevant as long as You don't know if there is X11 (DECWindows) installed and started on Your system.
Is this the first time You try to run a program using graphics ?
Since the program is produces an 'X ToolKit Error', my suspicion is DECWindows is installed (otherwise I would expect missing DECWindows shared library errors).

Does "SHOW LOGICALS DECW$*" show something ?
If yes, DECWindows is installed and running, and
the error has to do with the X11 DISPLAY setting.
What does "SHOW DISPLAY" say ?
In which way are You logged in to the VMS system ? console,terminal window,telnet,ssh,... ?

Only after answering those questions it makes sense to go on.

Yes this is the first I try to run a program using graphics.

SHOW LOGICALS DECW$*
shows me a lot of logicals.
But if I do a SHOW DISPLAY
, it says
%DECW-W-OPENIN, error opening DECW$DISPLAY as input.
-SYSTEM-W-NOSUCHDEV, no such device available
.can u tell what I need to do now?

Hi Anjan,

Assuming DECwindows is installed and configured on your system, you need to do a SET DISPLAY to your X-Server (remote or local). Please see the VMS Beginner's FAQ here...

http://saf.bio.caltech.edu/vms_beginners_faq.html#DECW02

here is a more extensive explanation...

http://www.isis.stfc.ac.uk/groups/computing/x-windows-display9467.html

Or, try the "Using DECwindows Motif for OpenVMS" Document at the official OpenVMs Documentation site here...

Cheers!
