RCP VMS command

What files must I have entries in and what entries go in those files in order for me to execute the RCP command between VMS 5.5-2 server named NRTNBB1M and VMS 7.1-1 server named BRRTRS1M please? Thanks

Re: RCP VMS command

Is this related to the other recent problem, that you raised with UCX licensing. Is the plan to backup using IP between two systems (i.e. RCP) to do a veritas transfer, then I would beat up on Veritas for something a bit more robust, and secure.

Re: RCP VMS command

The RCp question is not vor Veritas backing up directly. it is for a product called MultiNet that I have on CD media. the only VAX we have with a CD Drive is BRRTRS1M but the server I actually need the installation on is NRTNBB1M so I was going to rcp the CD from RTRS1M to TNBB1M. thx

Re: RCP VMS command

Dudley,

if you want to copy the MultiNet files to TNBB1M to install them there, it sounds like that server does not yet have a TCPIP stack installed, so there would be no RCP functionality, as that only comes with an installed TCPIP stack.

Consider to use DECnet file copy. All you need is the DECnet address of node TNBB1M, if it's not already defined on node RTRS1M and a username/password on that node.

If everything is defined, just use:

$ COPY/LOG filename TNBB1M"username password"::

Re: RCP VMS command

Dudley:
1. Even if you can copy the files over, I doubt that that an initial install would work from the copied files. You can copy and install Multinet patches.
2. If you have DECNET between the two nodes and proxies for SYSTEM account between the two nodes, you could mount the cd on BRRTRS1M. Then you could try a network install:
@sys$update:vmsinstal multinet -BRRTRS1M::$n$dkannn:[multinetvvv]
3. If that doesn't work, you will probably need to talk with Process Software about your situation.

Dudley:
$ @sys$update:vmsinstal multinet BRRTRS1M::$n$dkannn:[multinetvvv]
$! substituting appropriate values for n, a (controller), nnn (device number) and vvv (multinet version)

Re: RCP VMS command

and if you have neither decnet, or TCPIP, and no funtcioning backup, then panic, or try Kermit over a serial link...
