Defrag issue

Re: Defrag issue

Ooops, my bad. I see it's DFO and not DFU. Time to check the prescription.

You'll need to get the current version of the HP DFO tool off of a current OpenVMS Alpha distribution kit, or by a "pull" request sent to HP. If you have a support contract, call up the support center and ask for the ftp site. You should have access credentials with your password. Otherwise, you'll need a distro or you'll need to ask HP to send you a kit or a pointer.

As a rule, HP does not make its kits available for anonymous download.

Re: Defrag issue

If you refer to the "Software rollout report":


and scroll down a ways (or search for Disk File Optimizer), it indicates supported ranges for DFO v2.9 are:

for Alpha : 7.3-2 8.3
for Integrity: 8.2 8.3-1H

I would a reinstall (which would do a relink) should make it work.

A valid software support maintenance agreement gets you a quarterly id/password which you can use to download layered products.

Thanks for your responses Hoff and Art.

We have tried to re-install DFO to repair the linkage-but, we still get the same errors. We will attempt to install v3 and see if it works better.

You should be able to say "thanks" with points, but you'll have to convince MAry Ann to do it for you ;-)

The "other" reason to start you're own thread.
