VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Hi All,

Im booting a vms server through a laptop connected to its serial port. I have attached the boot log with this. Nothing is getting loaded and I believe the system disk is corrupted. I need more clear picture of this. Kindly help.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Joewee,

if providing large .TXT files, please consider to attach them as a .TXT attachment in the future.

SYSGEN.EXE or maybe some image activated by the image activator when starting SYSGEN.EXE seems to have a corrupted file header. Consider to run ANAL/IMA on SYSGEN.EXE and all dependant images.

Consider to run ANAL/DISK on the system disk.

Provide the output of the above actions as an attached .TXT file for further examination.

Volker.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Joewee,

Indeed. As Volker has commented, SYSGEN.EXE would appear to be corrupted, as are several other files.

At a minimum, I would view that system disk with extreme suspicion, where multiple files have been corrupted, there are likely others.

If there is important data on that drive, I would immediately stop using it until it has been imaged physically, so that recovery can be attempted.

Thanks for your replies and very sorry for pasting such a long text file there...

I tried Ana/disk some time ago.. Please find the file attached.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Your system disk cannot be trusted. Errors like this in your ANAL/DISK ...

%ANALDISK-W-BADDIR, directory [SYS0.SYSCOMMON.DECW$DEFAULTS.USER] has invalid fo
rmat
-ANALDISK-I-BAD_DIRSIZE, directory record has invalid size
-ANALDISK-I-BAD_DIRTYPE, invalid type code in directory record

... imply that something has randomly corrupted various file headers.

The only fix is to restore from backup.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Even Im planning the same. But the Last available backup was taken only 6 months ago. But there were no activity after that since this server is not used for day today activities.. They have some important data on the other disk and an application which they use very rarely.


One quick question... will we be able to get this fixed if we take a image backup of this disk and restore it back??

And one more problem...

In SRM prompt when i find..

Tape drive is missing, CD drive is missing and few disks are missing. What could be the reason??

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

hi,

it would be well worth opening up the box and checking for dust levels , also reseat all connections. do a show config at the srm prompt and post the output.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

With a system disk as broken as yours is, no VMS behaviour will be reliable. SHOW DEVICES relies on the magic incantation

$ mcr sysman io autoconfigure

being run during boot, and given the problems you've got it wouldn't surprise me if the above command didn't run or didn't work.

Backing up this disk and restoring it may correct some problems but probably not all.

I strongly recommend you boot from the OpenVMS binary distrbution CD-ROM, and use BACKUP to back up all your disks. Then restore a known good backup of your system disk (e.g. from 6 months ago, if that's what you have). If your application files are all on non-system disks you shouldn't lose anything important.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

There is a possible explanation for how your system disk got corrupted in the first place.

Your console output appears to show two Mylex Raid controllers with different configurations. What if drives had been swapped between controllers? I would hope the Mylex would detect this ... but maybe not, or maybe the RAID rebuild wasn't dnoe properly.

Re: VMS server boots but nothing is loaded.

Hi,

I rebooted the server from the CD and restored system disk from recent backup and booted the server and all seems to be fine. Im not sure of the root cause of this problem. And no time to dig more in to it.

Thanks all of you for your time on this.
