OPENVMS 7.2 remote backup

Dears,

i have tow speart server ds with openvms 7.2 not cluster  i want cpy from server1 to anther server2.

$copy mok.lis vms3"system 12345678"::$1$DGA1:[SYS0.fawzi]/log

the error was ocure 

$ copy mok.lis vms3"system 12345678"::$1$DGA1:[SYS0.fawzi]/log
%COPY-E-OPENOUT, error opening VMS3"system password"::$1$DGA1:[SYS0.FAWZI]MOK.LI
S;1 as output
-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed
-SYSTEM-F-NOSUCHNODE, remote node is unknown
%COPY-W-NOTCOPIED, DDR1$DKA0:[SYS0.F1]MOK.LIS;1 not copied

i check the decnet status:

$ show net

Product: DECNET Node: DDR1 Address(es): 1.4
Product: TCP/IP Node: ddr1.ddr1 Address(es): 10.1.3.160

$ mcr ncp
NCP>show exec


Node Volatile Summary as of 22-APR-2019 12:52:59

Executor node = 2.20 (DDR1)

State = on
Identification = HP DECnet for OpenVMS Alpha

 

regards,

Re: OPENVMS 7.2 remote backup

You could use the DECnet address of the second node (2.nn) instead of the nodename (vms3), if that node name is not defined in the local DECnet database:

$copy mok.lis 2.nn"system 12345678"::$1$DGA1:[SYS0.fawzi]/log

Re: OPENVMS 7.2 remote backup

There is an incongruence with Decnet definition Address of the DDR1 node, basing on your information :


$ show net

Product: DECNET Node: DDR1 Address(es): 1.4
Product: TCP/IP Node: ddr1.ddr1 Address(es): 10.1.3.160

$ mcr ncp
NCP>show exec


Node Volatile Summary as of 22-APR-2019 12:52:59

Executor node = 2.20 (DDR1)
State = on
Identification = HP DECnet for OpenVMS Alpha

Did you try to reconfigure the DDR1 decnet executor address / scssystemid system parameter ? You should fix the above issue before to go forward with the following steps.


The problem you reported is related to “-SYSTEM-F-NOSUCHNODE, remote node is unknown” system error message.
It means that VMS3 node is not defined into the decnet local DB of DDR1 node.

I suspect you are running Decnet Phase IV (please send me the output of the “mc ncp show exec char” and “$ product show product *” ).

In case of Decnet phase IV:

1- Logon into VMS3 node and capture its decnet node name and address
    $ mc ncp show exec


    From node DDR1
    $ mc ncp
    NCP> Define node VMS3 address y.x
    NCP> Set node VMS3 all

If you are running Decnet Phase V the procedure will be different :

$ run sys$system:decnet_register


DECNET_REGISTER - Manage node registrations in network directory services

Use Return, Ctrl/N, and Ctrl/P to move between input fields
Use "?" to obtain help, Ctrl/Z to cancel

1 - Show information about registered node names
2 - Register or modify node names
3 - Update registered node towers using information from the nodes
4 - Rename a registered node name
5 - Repair the synonym and address links for registered node names
6 - Deregister node names
7 - Export node names to a data file
8 - Import node names from a data file
9 - Set preferences and network values
10 - Manage the directory service
11 - Spawn to DCL
* Option (use Ctrl/Z to exit):

The node VMS3 must be into the same Decnet area of DDR1 node, otherwise you will need a “Routing IV” or an “Area Routing”.
