Re: NOERLDUMP

Charles,

As you gave no specific details, read the chapter on managing page, swap and dump files in the "OpenVMS System Managerâ s Manual, Volume 2: Tuning, Monitoring, and Complex
Systems" manual for the version of VMS and hardware platform you are running on.

Re: NOERLDUMP

That is a warning message. The absence of SYS$ERRLOG.DMP should not prevent your system from booting.

What has changed since you were able to boot?

it depends

Hi Charles

See you on
http://ftp.openvms.compaq.com/wizard/wiz_0899.html
Wizard recommendation is to use AUTOGEN to generate SYS$ERRLOG.DMP file.

Saludos.

Re: NOERLDUMP

Charles,
See the response from Jon above. This is just a warning message and SHOULD NOT stop your system from booting.
Your problem lies somewhere else. Please post more information, vis. the console output from the boot command, upto the point at which it fails. This would be a good place to start.

Dave.

Re: NOERLDUMP

Hi,
this is a file for error log buffers. It's also posible to create by SYSGEN utility:
SYSGEN> CREATE SYS$SYSTEM:SYS$ERRLOG.DMP /CONTI/SIZE=xxx
(for size read your recomendation in SYS$SYSTEM:AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT on your system)

Re: NOERLDUMP

The system crashed several times.
The last line of code upon reboot is:
%SYSINIT-E- error opening SYS$ERRLOG.DMP, status = 00000910.

Thanks for your time and patience. I am not very familiar wit this system and greatly appreciate your help.

Re: NOERLDUMP

Just tested it and it gives the message BUT continues. Your problem is something else AFTER this message.
