Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

Whenever I try to REMOVE a communication PROXY from the TCPIP$PROXY using the /PERMANENT option, it gives me the following error:

TCPIP> remove proxy system /permanent
%TCPIP-E-PROXYERROR, error processing proxy request
-TCPIP-E-INVQUAL, invalid qualifier value for /PERMANENT

What is the reason for this? Can this be avoided? If so, how?

Re: Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

HI,

don't use the /permanent qualifier , it seems to work ok without !?

TCPIP> ADD PROX SYSTEM/REMOTE=SYSTEM/HOST=PDCWK2/PERM
TCPIP> SHOW PROX/PERM

VMS User_name Type User_ID Group_ID Host_name

SYSTEM C SYSTEM PDCWK2
TCPIP> REM PROX "SYSTEM"

VMS User_name Type User_ID Group_ID Host_name

SYSTEM C SYSTEM PDCWK2
Remove? [N]:Y
TCPIP> SHOW PROX/PERM
%TCPIP-E-PROXYERROR, error processing proxy request
-TCPIP-W-NORECORD, information not found
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found

Re: Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

Thank you for the prompt response. I know that it works without /Permanent but I want it to work with it. At least tell me a reason why it doesnt work with it.

Re: Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

The TCPIP> HELP REMO PROX _suggests_ it is optional. That specifying it would ONLY remove the permanent record, and maybe not the active in memory data.
I guess they never actually implemented that.
So REM PROX does everything REM PRO/PERM would have done, and more.

fwiw,
Hein.

Re: Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

Thank you, Hein. Is there any way to confirm whether this feture was implemented or not?

If I wanted to remove the entry from just the permanent database and leave it in the volatile database for this session, is there any way to do it?

Yes, read the source code...

Volker,

Thank you for your suggestion.

Re: Remove Proxy with /Permanent option

FYI:

That provision was not implemented in OpenVMS. The documentation for that will be removed from the Help pages from the next version.
