-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

Dear all,

am new to OVMS ,basically I belongs to HPUX .One of my customer facing problem while he tries to copy files from one OVMS server to other OVMS server ,but he can do in reverse.

FYI :- OVMS 7 on both the server

Error Messages:-

COPY-E-OPENOUT, error opening ALPH02"system password"::[]YAQOOB.TXT;1 as output
-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed
-SYSTEM-F-LINKEXIT, network partner exited
%COPY-W-NOTCOPIED, DSA31:[LINE_1]YAQOOB.TXT;1 not copied

Could you please let me know the steps to trace it out the issues and also please share some basic notes to study OVMS


Decent Points are assured for helpfull answers.

Thanks,
Abi

Abi,

Welcome to the ITRC OpenVMS Forum!

Simply put, the remote server is not successfully starting up the FAL process as required.

On the remote machine, in the user's login directory, there should be a file NETSERVER.LOG. Check this file for any error messages. Another common problem is some problem involving the remote user's login profile.

Hi,

Please let me know the procedure to give an access to a user to perform copy to remote machines and also what are the areas of restrictions applicable for the same.

Thanks,

Hi

let me add one more thing ,we are not able to do copy to the remote OVMS server from any users.

Thanks,

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

Try to login interactively using the account in question. As Robert states, DECnet was not able to start the listener process on the remote system.
Disabled user accounts or illegal passwords would result in other error messages (e.g. invalid login information).
Perhaps you have a resource problem on the remote system (no more process slots e.g.).

Okay , I will check the account status tomorrow.Any other tips or suggestions.

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

Log into the ALPHA02 (remote) system and look for the NET*SERVER.LOG file that typically gets created in the context of the target environment. This file will typically be created in the default directory of the target username; in the default directory for SYSTEM, here.

Look in this log file and see if there are any interesting errors listed there.

On no evidence, I'd assume there are DCL commands in SYLOGIN or in LOGIN.COM file used for SYSTEM username that are preventing the login sequence. (This is a fairly common mistake when unfamiliar with the sometimes cryptic and arcane world of DCL; this is a common corner case that most everybody has implemented and then had to debugg.)

To test this theory (and looking within NET$SERVER.LOG is part of this research), temporarily place the line "$ EXIT" at the top of each of the two files.

The LOGIN file is usually:

SYS$LOGIN:LOGIN.COM

when you're logged in as SYSTEM.

As for the system-wide login, issue the SHOW LOGICAL SYS$SYLOGIN command; that typically shows the file. The system may or may not have a system-wide SYLOGIN.

Here's something I posted on a related (and slightly more general) topic a week or so ago:

http://64.223.189.234/node/955

I've preferred either "OpenVMS" or "VMS" as the name of the operating system; that's been what DEC, Compaq and HP have tended to use in the official materials. There are about a dozen (and variously different) V7.* releases around for VAX and Alpha systems.

[[[Decent Points are assured for helpfull answers.]]]

That phrasing doesn't necessarily mean what you had intended.

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

ps:

$ HELP /MESSAGE LINKEXIT

LINKEXIT, network partner exited

Facility: SYSTEM, System Services

Explanation: The remote process exited before confirming the logical link for one of the following reasons:

o A problem with the log file on the remote node

o An unopened remote log file because of a write-locked disk
(on the remote node)

o A premature exit of the process


User Action: Read the remote log or retry the operation.

Dear Hoff,

Thanks for your advice and suggestion .I will confirm the system wide login file and local user login file on tomorrow .

Could you please give me the procedure to open and edit the login files .

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

This is the key:

%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
\%DCL\

There appears to be a command "%DCL" in a command file somewhere, either sylogin.com, login.com or a procedure called from one of these procedures. Find it. Right now this causes an error and terminates the login.

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

You may want to place something like the following near the top of your system wide login commmand procedure (normally sys$manager:sylogin.com)

$ mode = f$mode()
$ if mode .eqs. "NETWORK" then exit

There error modifying device messages are probably due to

$ set terminal

commands in a login command file, and these cause problems for non-interactive processes.

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

Dear Jon,

Could you please confirm me ,if I have added the below lines on top the system wide login file (sys$manager:sylogin.com) can solve the issue or apart from this do I need to configure the terminal .Because I have no idea in OpenVMS platform so I would like to confirm with you experts before going to the customer place.

sylogin.com -- on remote server
$ mode = f$mode()
$ if mode .eqs. "NETWORK" then exit

Please advice me

Thanks,

Re: -RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed

No offense intended, but my advice is that if you don't understand what that code does and what the implications are, then you should not be making changes to your customer's system. You haven't given enough information for us to tell it that is appropriate or not. It wouldn't be appropriate if there are thing that must be done for every processes, for example some auditing, process specific logical name definitions, etc.

You do not want to execute a set terminal command from anything but an interactive session, otherwise you will get an error.

The errors:

%SET-W-NOTSET, error modifying DSA30:
-SET-E-INVDEV, device is invalid for requested operation
%SET-W-NOTSET, error modifying DSA30:
-SET-E-INVDEV, device is invalid for requested operation

are most likely due to

$ set terminal

commands somewhere in the login command procedures, either the system wide one (sys$manager:sylogin.com, or the login command file specified for the username that is attempting to log in (system in the example you gave). Normally the user's login procedure will be the file login.com in the home directory of the username, but it can be anywhere. It is specified in the user authorization record for the user.

Since the error is repeated, one may be from the system wide login, and the other from the user's login.

So you probably want a conditional that only executes the set terminal command if the mode is "INTERACTIVE".

Does this customer not have a support company with VMS experience? If you are supposed to be their support, you need to get some training. Until you get formal training, I would suggest downloading and reading the VMS System Manager's Essentials, and the VMS User Guide. Also, Hoff's VMS Frequently Asked Questions. And you really should have a system you can try things on. If you don't have a real system you can play with, you should investigate getting an emulator (Alpha or VAX) that runs on a PC.
