Problem running T4 trial session

I'm in the process or running a T4 trial session and its giving me the following error message:

$ @T4$SYS:T4$CONFIG.COM
%DCL-E-OPENIN, error opening T4$SYS:[SYSEXE]T4$CONFIG.COM; as input
-RMS-F-DEV, error in device name or inappropriate device type for operation

Assistance would be appreciated...thanks!

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Regina,

this looks very much like you are missing the T4$SYS logical name, in the scope of the executing process.

(If it IS defined, check that it has the /ATTRIBUTE=COBCEALED )

hth

Proost.

Have one on me.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Regina,

Check that you have defined the base T4 environment per the release notes. As Jan has noted, that includes the T4$SYS logical name.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

All,

I did define T4$SYS and T4$DATA as the guide tells you to but I still get the same message. I also included the /ATTRIBUTE=COBCEALED but unfortunately that didn't work either.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Regina,

It is difficult to know precisely what you are looking at.

Where are the files that were installed from the T4 kit? What are the contents of the logical names?

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Regina,

That may be so, but in the mean time there still is something wrong with the definition.

Some typo? like an O/0 (Ohh/ZerO) confusion?
A colon too many?
Double quoted either side? Should not.

The error shown has NOTHING to do with T4 itself and everthing with basic device/directory/logical-name navigation.

For further help please check with a peer, and if reporting here be sure to include the output for

$SHOW LOG T4$SYS [ /all ]
$SHOW LOG for anything left of the colon
$SHOW DEV T4$SYS (will follow logical)

Also, Maybe you have a DCL$PATH logical set up to murking the waters?

Hth,
Hein.

$ set def sys$system
$ @test:afwerf
$ show log test
%SHOW-S-NOTRAN, no translation for logical name TEST
$ show log test:
%SHOW-S-NOTRAN, no translation for logical name TEST:
$ @test:something-silly
%DCL-E-OPENIN, error opening TEST:[SYSEXE]SOMETHING-SILLY.COM; as input
-RMS-F-DEV, error in device name or inappropriate device type for operation

Regina,

>>>

<<<

Could you specify EXACTLY (copy/paste) how you did do that?
Quite obviously something did not work out well enough. Could be a typo, could be unsufficiently detailed instruction.

From the available info, and past experience, I tend to suspect a missing "." (fill stop) in the T4$SYS definition just before the closing square bracket "]", but that is just my best guess.

Tell us more, help us helping you!

Proost.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Regina,
I have T4 running but I'm not on mys system so I have to dig into my memory - and it may be faulty...


...error opening T4$SYS:[SYSEXE]T4$CONFIG.COM...

and you're running form SYS$SYSTEM?

In that case, your definition T4$SYS is incorrect, or you specified the wrong location.

You have:
- NOT specified T4$SYS as a logical.
- You have specified T4$SYS as ":[.]/TRANS=(CONCEALED TERMINAL)
where is yet another (concealed) logical. In that case: remove the TERMINAL attribute. If is not defined, you need to do that before you can use this specification. If refers to a device, the TERMINAL attribute applies.

My recollection is that T4$SYS is a plain logical location, so :[] - where should refer to a physical disk, or be properly defined.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

Just checked.
On my system, I defined T4$SYS as:

$ sho log t4$*0/full

"T4$DATA" [exec] = "userdisk:[t4.data]"
"T4$SYS" [exec] = "USERDISK:[T4.T4$SYS]"

USERDISK is the name used when mounting the disk - so I don't require anything more.

Re: Problem running T4 trial session

So,

my comment about T4$SYS as a concealed device was totally inappropriate. Pleas ignore it.

Proost.
