Pathworks 32 V7.4

Pathworks 32 V7.4

We currently have multiple Windows 2003 SP1 servers running Pathworks 32 v7.4, the Windows servers connect to several VMS servers. After approximately 35 - 55 days the servers crash. When I analyze the dump I get probable cause "Decdnp.sys", this happens several times a month since I have the software deployed on 18 servers. I have complete dumps, and lots of other information if anyone has any ideas.

I'm attaching a Windows debugged crash dump text file.
Thanks in advance.

I would start a call with HP to analyze the dumps.

Re: Pathworks 32 V7.4

Are you using DECnet as the protocol? Check the Pathworks event log, if you see a line that looks like:

"mumble mumble" increased to xxx

repeating over and over until the value hits 512, you need an updated decdnp.sys. HP resolved the problem by looking at the event log.
