Need help with the new Openvms 8.3 server

Greetings,

When I tried to edit a file on a new VMS server and get an error message (plz see below).
$ edit SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM
Command file does not exist
File name:SYS$LOGIN:EDTINI.EDT
%RMS-E-FNF, file not found
%EDT-F-EDITORABO, Editor aborted


What are some of the files do I need to export from one Alpha server to another Alpha server so that can be some what the same? The current server is running Openvms 7.3-2 and the new server is running Openvmw 8.2 - Itanium.

Any ideas??

Thank you in advance.

Jorge

Do you have a logical name EDTINI refering to SYS$LOGIN:EDTINI.EDT ?

I thought I did but doesn't seem to help.

ED*T == "EDIT/EDT/COMMAND=SYS$LOGIN:EDTINI.EDT"

Jorge,

see $ help edit/edt/command

You may also have a symbol defined for EDIT:

$ SHOW SYMBOL EDIT

I can reproduce your error message like this:

$ edit/edt/command=sys$login:edtini.edt y.y
Command file does not exist
File name:SYS$LOGIN:EDTINI.EDT
%RMS-E-FNF, file not found
%EDT-F-EDITORABO, Editor aborted

Re: Need help with the new Openvms 8.3 server

Nothing came up when I tried show symb edit.

How can I change this error? %TPU-E-NONANSICRT, SYS$INPUT must be supported CRT

I would like or fimiliar with the edit/edt function and I would like to be able to use this function. How can I fix this?

Thanks,

Jorge

Jorge,

issue a SET TERM/INQUIRE command to have VMS obtain and set the correct terminal type.

TPU needs a video terminal type.

"SET TERM/INQUIRE" -- That was it!! I am now able to edit/edt myfile.com without any problems.

How can I make this command stick whenever I log in as system??

Many thanks!!

There should be a SET TERM/INQ in the system wide login SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGIN.COM (or where SYS$SYLOGIN points to).

In response to your original question. You were probably missing the file EDTINI.EDT in your login directory. Copy that over from your previous system.

Jorge,

in the default SYLOGIN.TEMPLATE (and SYLOGIN.COM), there is the following DCL symbol assignment:

$ TT_NOINQUIR = "|TW|RT|WT|TK|WS|PY|FT|TN|"

This would prevent TELNET devices from being subjected to a SET TERM/INQ command. If you typically login via TELNET and are missing the SET TERM/INQ, remove the 'TN|' string from the above DCL command.

Re: Need help with the new Openvms 8.3 server

It wasn't, but now it's.

What are some of the system files or com procedures do I need to move from the current box to the new box so that I can have the same touch & feel??

I started on modifying the sys$startup:SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM and the latest is the SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGIN.COM

Any other ideas?

Thanks so much for your help, Ian.
