copy/ftp issue

Hi all,

I have two Alpha server(ES40&GS1280) running OpenVMS8.3.I copy some files from GS1280 to ES40 using copy/ftp in a script.
The script run successfully.But I find one of the files is broken,other files are OK.
All files are .COM file and no more than 30K.TCPIP version is 5.6ECO-2.If I do not run script and only run copy/ftp command,everything is OK.
Does anyone give some comment?

Re: copy/ftp issue

any recent changes ? network errors ? is it reproducable - different files affected or the same ones. any error messages ? also posting up the procedure involved may help everyone here to help you much faster.

Re: copy/ftp issue

Could you post the output of the copy/ftp, the return status and a prove that the files are "borken" ?
Make sure that sys$output and sys$error are not directed elsewhere or post it too.

Re: copy/ftp issue

So help us understand.

What is "the problem" (last reply)

What is "broken" in "I find one of the files is broken,"

How do you know? What is broken about it?
Is there an error? Tell us about it!
Better still. Copy & Paste!

The DIR/FULL looks fine and similar except that one process was set to report in Kilobytes instead of the traditional blocks which will make serious analysis just a little more difficult.

Re: copy/ftp issue

And the log of the copy/ftp ?

Tru64Unix,

Hein's point is indeed well taken. High water enabled is indeed the default (verified) on 6.2.

Re: copy/ftp issue

To all,

My apologies, somehow my previous item ended up in the wrong thread.

The moderators may consider this a request to delete both this and my previous entry.

Re: copy/ftp issue

If all we have here is "is broken", well, the set of things that can be broken here is infinite. Specific symptoms or DCL commands or error messages or diagnostics or exact commands and such are a vital part of resolving something that is broken.

Some suggestions around how to pose a question:

Asking questions is as much a learned skill as answering them, in my experience. And both are worth cultivating.

Re: copy/ftp issue

have you also thought of scp to move/copy files? I have been getting spoiled using that to move files around.
