re:  %SDA-W-EXCLDATA, data excluded from dump due to insufficient privilege

 

This diagnostic message points to one obvious potential trigger and given you've probably already checked that, this implies that there might be something else going on here — that you do have read access to the dump file, for instance, and that you're still getting the error.  Some details on the object protections might then help address this; in addition to the SHOW PROCESS /PRIVILEGE, possibly the DIRECTORY /SECURITY on the process dump file, for instance.  Also which OpenVMS patches have been installed (if any), as V8.4 sans patches can have various issues, with PRODUCT SHOW PRODUCT command, or equivalent.

 

Is the process dump file from the same version of OpenVMS, if this configuration is a cluster or if the file is originating from a remote server?

 

Though the path to the dump file was not specified (there are logical names related to the dump files), I'd guess that this is a privileged image that you're looking at, which means the dumps are usually protected against random access, because there can be sensitive information in the dumps.   For details on OpenVMS security, please see the OpenVMS Guide to System Security manual in the documentation set.  The security manual also provides a far more detailed view into how OpenVMS privileges and object protections and access controls interact, too.

Dump file created on version V8.3. Where as I am trying to analyze on V8.4. Dump iginating from a remote server.

Dump file is in the local directory and user is "SYSTEM".

 

Thanks.
