HP Code Management System reports file not closed by CMS.

We have a backup application which takes backup of the disk which contains the CMS library.

After the back CMS reports that file not closed by CMS.

 

Is there any specific way we need to open the file for the backup ?

 

-CMS-E-NOTBYCMS, data file DISK1:[CMS.LIB]FILE.TXT;6 not closed by CMS.

 

Please advise.

 

Thanks.

Thank you.

 

Is there any specfic attributes we need to pass for "sys$qio"  so that there will not be any error messages in CMS ?

 

Thanks

Re: HP Code Management System reports file not closed by CMS.

So you're re-inventing OpenVMS BACKUP ?

 

Do a DIR/FULL on that CMS file BEFORE running your 'Backup application', then another DIR/FULL afterwards. What's changed ?

 

Does this CMS error happen on the SOURCE disk after the backup has run or on the backup destination disk or after restoring that backup ?

Please look at the DIR/FULL output before/after 'backup'.

 

Are you by chance opening the file with using 'readonly' mode ?
