MMS/DESC on Itanium

I've installed a new Itanium running VMS 8.3 and fully patched. DECSET installed off the layered products disk, (version 12.8). MMS passed the IVP, but when I try to use it with /DESCRIPTION to specify an MMS file it access violates.

I tried using MMS/GENERATE to create a simple DESCRIP.MMS and I can then use MMS to build using this.. but MMS/DESC=DESCRIP.MMS fails.

I've even reinstalled everything from scratch, but no change. Is this a known issue, or has anyone else had it, or do you know of a workround?

Re: MMS/DESC on Itanium

Works for me:

td183 $ cc /ver
HP C V7.3-018 on OpenVMS IA64 V8.3

td183 $ mms /iden
%MMS-I-IDENT, MMS V3.8 © Copyright 2007 Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P.

td183 $ show default
USER1:[ANTINODE.utility.source.zip.ZIP30F30]

td183 $ mms /desc = [.vms]descrip.mms /macr = large=1

Destination: [.IA64L]

if (f$search( "IA64L.DIR;1") .eqs. "") then create /directory [.IA64L]
CC /decc /prefix = (all) /include = [] /object = [.IA64L]ZIP.OBJ /define = (
VMS , LARGE_FILE_SUPPORT ) []ZIP.C
[...]

Are your process quotas risibly small or
something?

Re: MMS/DESC on Itanium

Tim,

could you provide an example of the command and the failure ? Either directly in your next reply or as an attached .TXT file.

You could also issue a SET PROC/DUMP command before invoking MMS/DESC=DESCRIP.MMS. This should create a MMS.DMP process dump, which one could look at with ANAL/PROC MMS.DMP

Does this happen with any .MMS file you specify ? Even a simple one ?

As a very simple example, make a private copy of SYS$TEST:MMS$IVP.COM and change the line

$ Mms/NoCms
to
$ Mms/NoCms/DESC=DESCRIP.MMS

Then $ @MMS$IVP

Re: MMS/DESC on Itanium

Thanks both for your suggestions. I've checked the quotas and theu are better than the release notes say, although as this is a new node in a cluster with an Alpha, some quotas could be lower than ideal!

It works with the simplist case, see attached a log of MMS$IVP, I did the mms/NoCms twice, once without the /DESC and once with.

Anal/Proc tells me I have a break on unhandled exception at 288592 in thread 1,
I have included a little bit of anal/proc output, however I may have asked the wrong questions to be useful... I can use it on my software, but both IA64 and system software with threads are different!

Re: MMS/DESC on Itanium

Tim,

the failing PC is clearly within the MMS.EXE image. Please log a call with HP, as this needs to be diagnosed and fixed...
