VMS7.3 with NFS Mount

We have E45 Alpha server running VMS7.3 and a NFS mount to a NAS device. VERY intermitten the VMS server will hang during a copy to the NFS mount. A hard reset of the server is required to resolve the issue. This doesn not occur on a reqular basis. Any ideas would be much appreciated. I have looked for patches with no luck.

Re: VMS7.3 with NFS Mount

VERY much has changed in the way of going from OpenVMS V7.3 to V7.3-2 with all patches. Also TCPIP V5.4 is not the same as TCPIP V5.4 ECO 6.

So my first advise would be: upgrade to this combination of software, or better yet: to the current versions, being V8.3 and V5.6 ECO 1.

If that is not an option: what exact version are you running?

Actually useful information would be the
output from:

TCPIP SHOW VERSION

as suggested before under the guise of:

> ucx show vers ?

This would provide the aforementioned ECO
level, too, and is simply good practice.

I believe that ECO 6 is current. I'd try
that first.

Re: VMS7.3 with NFS Mount

Could you define "hang" ? Only the process or the whole system ?

Reset it next time forcing a crash (control P followed by command crash). After the boot you should have a file in sys$common:[syserr]clue$NODE_*.lis explaning the problem.

Be aware, however, that ECO 6 has problems with no-DNS configurations,

Re: VMS7.3 with NFS Mount

I don't see any processes that are "RWAST" however once you login into the server via telnet and attempt to access the NFS mount the session is hung. Also you can't simply reboot the server. A hard reset is required. Once rebooted all works properly.

Thanks
