Whats is the meaning of this kind of error?

Hi masters of universe vms,

Today, I got this message on my OpenVMS system:

%MIRROR-E-NOTERAVL, No slot available for connection to transaction controller

I've been searching the code 'NOTERAVL' on internet with no results. Even, the help /message command on the OS returns null rows.

Anybody can to explain me the meaning of this error? Thanks a lot.

Re: Whats is the meaning of this kind of error?

Search your local disk(s) for the NOTERAVL text string and see where it lives; that's not an error facility I recognize as an OpenVMS facility or as part of a core layered project tool.

Which could mean it's third-party, or local.

For instance...

SEARCH SYS$SYSROOT:[*...]*.* NOTERAVL/WINDOW=0

If that turns up nothing, start searching whole disks.

If the tool follows the usual facility naming conventions, the file(s) involved may or will be named MIRROR$*.*.

What's running on the OpenVMS box that's doing transactions? Probably some sort of a database product?

Re: Whats is the meaning of this kind of error?

Are you using a product called 'MIRROR' or some transaction routing / replication tool?

If not, then it may well be a stray error code. Some semi-random value used as an exit status.

Under what circumstances did you get that error message?

- In a (batch) log file?

- On the screen? Can you get the numeric value? $SHOW SYMB $STATUS

- Running something that 'always works'? What changed ? (Network issues?)

- Trying a new tool / program ?

- Is the error condition/message repeatable?

Good luck,
Hein.
