Monitor Cluster command


Can you / how can I use the $monitor cluster command if there is no decnet running. I have a two not cluster and get the no connect error message. I am running just TCP/IP services.

I know very little about this VPM Software.
Error message below


%MONITOR-I-ESTABCON, establishing connection to remote node(s)...
GS160A Sep 19 10:43:46 2005 <| %VPM-W-NOCONNECT, Unable to connect to remote node GS160B
GS160A Sep 19 10:43:47 2005 <| -MONITOR-W-NODEINIERR, error during node initialization
GS160A Sep 19 10:43:48 2005 <| %MONITOR-I-CONT, continuing....


Thank you

Re: Monitor Cluster command

$ sear sys$startup:systartup_vms.template vpm/win=(3,0)

$!
$! Uncomment the following command to have Monitor run with TCP/IP.
$!
$!$ @SYS$STARTUP:VPM$STARTUP.COM

so, there it is. Just run the needed startup procedure. And uncomment it in your SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM

Re: Monitor Cluster command

Robert,

You need to make sure the host names and addresses are correct. What does:

$ TCPIP SHOW HOST GS160B

return? You'll need to have aliases matching the SCSNODE name for each node in the cluster.

Re: Monitor Cluster command

Looks as if you need to set up the proxy accounts for access to the other node. Regrettably MONITOR uses DECnet or TCPIP rather than a lower-level protocol, so it's task to task communication - and that needs a proxy entry to establish the connection.

For example:

UAF> ADD/PROXY :: [/DEFAULT]

I've never used the TCPIP only method, but I would expect you to have to set up TCPIP proxies in a similar manner within the separate TCPIP proxy database.
