SRM command to get IPC ?

Disaster happen always when I'm far away from my system :-(

I need the SRM command to access the IPC on a DEC3000 to regain quorum.
It was in older OpenVMS FAQs, but I can't find nowhere.
On the >>> SRM promt type
deposit ?? ??
Then in IPC> Q ?

I have access to the console via Internet.

Thanks for answers. . .

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

Not sure about the exact syntax for the 3000 :-(

On recent Alphas it is:
>>> deposit sirr c

On VAX computers it is
>>> d/i 14 c

then, immediately:
>>> continue

From a previous thread:

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=985038

>>> D SIRR C
>>> C
IPC> Q
IPC>

HTH,
Art

In VAX I believe it was >>> d/i 14 c and then continue.

Now my cluster isn't blocked until I travel back 600 km.

Art , thanks for the link:
a search in OpenVMS forums for IPC does not find this thread, strange.

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

note that the recommended way of doing a quorum fix is now to use AMDS/Availability Manager rather than the IPC at the console.

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

If quorum ist lost and one can't login, AMDS is not very helpfull, and console access is the only way.
Of course for a permanently logged on system/manger/monitor/operator that's o.k.,
but it's not my situation.

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

As far as a cluster that's lost quorum, you can either have a system running AMDS that isn't particpating in the cluster or lower yourself to using Availablity Manager on a "Windows" system. Either option has a variety of options for remote access.

Why do they call it "terminal services" if it displays a GUI?

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

"terminal" comes from "terminal station" as in, f.ex. railway stations where a service begins or ends. It does not have to be a character-cell only screen.

Re: SRM command to get IPC ?

having a system running or able to run AMDS or Availability manager on the same lan as your production clusters is highly recommended. Apart from fixing quorum it is very useful in chasing quota and lock problems.
