MntVerifyTimeout

Hi,

Suddenly I got following following error messages today:

osfs2$dka100 MntVerifyTimeout 2 User .. ... ...

The system have been up and running 110 days without any trouble. Is it possible to remove the error message and mount the volume once more, or is it nessecary to replace the hard disk.

Re: MntVerifyTimeout

Geir,

a disk will go into mount-verification on certain IO errors. During mount verification, OpenVMS will try to issue IOs to the disk and make sure, the disk is still working, valid and has the same label as before.

If the mount-verification attempts fail, the device will be put into MntVerifyTimeout state after MVTIMEOUT seconds (SYSGEN parameter, default = 3600 = 1 hour).

Check the errorlog for disk errors.

You can then try to use DISMOUNT/ABORT disk: to dismount the disk.

If the disk is still working, you can then mount the disk again.

Re: MntVerifyTimeout

Geir,

the disk has some problems and VMS has tried MVTIMEOUT (SYSGEN parameter) seconds to recover and finally gave up. You may be able to DISMOUNT the disk now. For further info see the SYSTEM MANAGER ESSENTIALS Part I.

Before trying to use the disk again, I would check the errorlog about those 2 errors.
