I do not, but I think 7.1-2 is not a "good" version for being supported. It would be better to have 6.2 or 7.3

If you look on the Legato web site you'll find two reference sites. Southeastern Freight Lines and Wake Forest University. We have over 200 customers of our product. Hope that helps.

Re: Legato networker client V6.0-1D on openvms 7.1-2

Thank you for all good tips, we have found the problem, it is with the alias directories on some of our vms servers that has wrong backlink and can only be seen when doing a dump/header on the directory, see below:
$ dump/head/bl=co=0 sys$sysdevice:[0,0 vms$common.dir
The file NAME as recorded in the file header is SYSCOMMON.DIR
The BACKLINK is (4,4,0). ANAL/DISK/REPAIR does not correct the name in the file header.
The Answer is :
For this specific case, the following commands will correct the backlinks:
$ SET DEFAULT SYS$SYSDEVICE:[000000]
$ RENAME VMS$COMMON.DIR SYSCOMMON.DIR
$ RENAME SYSCOMMON.DIR VMS$COMMON.DIR

othervise nsr works fine on vms 7.1-2 :)
