copying qman$master.dat to another node

I need to copy the queues from 1 system to another. Below are the steps I used

$ convert/share qman$master.dat qman$master.steve
$ copy qman$master.steve xxx::sys$common:[sysexe]

On node xxx

$ stop/que/manager/cluster
$ sho que
%JBC-E-JOBQUEDIS, system job queue manager is not running
$ rename qman$master.steve qman$master.dat;10
$ start/que/manager
%JBC-E-QMANNOTSTARTED, queue manager could not be started

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

Can you do that?

Any OPCOM messages? ("REPLY /ENABLE".)

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

You might be better served by finding a copy of DISPLAY_QUEUE.COM which users F$GETQUI to create a set of INITIALIZE /QUEUE commands that will recreate your current queue configuration.
I have one, but it's personal.

Steven,

You need to redefine which node(s) are to run the queue manager. The QMAN$MASTER contains the old node.

$ start/queue/manager/on=(node1,node2,...)

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

As Steven wrote enable opcom or search the operator log and try adding the location of the files.

On the new node execute ...

$start/que/manager/on=* sys$common:[sysexe]

Steven,

I don't think this is an supported operation !

Please try to also move the SYS$QUEUE_MANAGER.QMAN$QUEUES file.

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

I copied the 3 files with backup/ign=int and started the queue manager with the copy.
It works but when I do sh que/all I get "no such queue". When I edit the db I can see the queue names !

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

Same result when I stop the queue manager on the origin node.

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

Mmm strange stuff.

For my test I copied the files and did a "start/que/man dir" where dir was the new location.

At the end I wanted to go back to the original situation (start/que/man orig_dir). It didn't work. All queues were gone. Even a reboot didn't solve it.

Re: copying qman$master.dat to another node

I am assuming that the Alpha and VAX are stand alone nodes or at least in different clusters?

I bet that the queue information is tied to a node.

What if you try starting a queue with the /ON on the VAX node?
