Warning: DECdtm log file not found (SYS$JOURNAL:SYSTEM$ .LM$JOURNAL)

Dear VMS experts,
can you please help me to get rid of this message:

%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 7-NOV-2010 20:24:29.62 %%%%%%%%%%%
Message from user SYSTEM
Warning: DECdtm log file not found (SYS$JOURNAL:SYSTEM$ .LM$JOURNAL)
%RMS-E-FNF, file not found
TP server process waiting

I've already spent 24 hours with reading docs and so on... Please help me.

Notice the whitespace between "...:SYSTEM$" and ".LM$...".
But that's definitely a invalid file name right?

Regards

That space is where the node name should be.
So perhaps the nodename is not properly defined?
I suspect is should come from sysgen.
Check with:

$ mcr sysgen show scsnode

I typically create the LMF journal file using:

$ mcr lmcp create log SYS$JOURNAL system$'f$getsyi("NODENAME")'.LM$JOURNAL

But until it calls for a proper name, there is not point.

If you have no applications on your system that use DECdtm, then you may want to inhibit DECdtm with the following command in SYS$MANAGER:SYLOGICALS.COM.

$DEFINE/SYSTEM/EXECUTIVE SYS$DECDTM_INHIBIT "YES"

Good luck,
Hein.

Hi. Thank you for your input. I've used a slightly changed version of your command and all works now.

$ mcr lmcp create log SYS$JOURNAL:SYSTEM$MV3100.LM$JOURNAL
