Question about volume allocation in SLS 2.9F

Running SLS 2.9F on OpenVMS 7.1 Alpha.

While I know ABS/MDMS quite well, SLS is similar but quite different.

It's easy to see whether a volume is in allocated status, but I haven't been able to figure out how to tell to whom it's allocated.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Question about volume allocation in SLS 2.9F

Are you asking about which process or what username it's allocated to?

The username is easy, because you can do a STORAGE REPORT VOLUME or STORAGE SHOW VOLUME or STORAGE SHOW VOLUME/SYMBOL commands.

If you use the /SYMBOL command you should look for a symbol with the name SLS$INQ_OWNER.

You should see something in the OWNER field
if the volume is allocated.

Re: Question about volume allocation in SLS 2.9F

which username it's allocated to.

It's not spelled out in the .pdf documentation, at least as much of it as I searched through.

Hey, Bob-

didn't see it was you until I looked a second time.

And it made me slap my forehead due to the obviousness of it, despite it not being spelled out in the docs...
