Re: %dcl-e-open

Hi nuno,


it would be helpful if you could provide some more info, e.g operating system version,architecture, what it is you are doing when you get this error, is this new behaviour and if so what else has changed ?

Re: %dcl-e-open

RMS-E-WLK: somebody tries to write to a read-only device, defined through the logical name BG_INI .

Internet AUXS indicates the process trying to write to the file is started as a TCPIP service.

Since BG_DIGI is not a base VMS name, if You don't know to which application-package it belongs, do a
TCPIP SHOW SERVICE
to see if one of the services refers to this name.

Re: %dcl-e-open

What is being attempted when this error occurs? Did it ever work?

To investigate, start with: $HELP/MESS WLK.
It reads: "The hardware device specified for an RMS file system operation is write-locked for protection, and write access is attempted."

That device pretty much has to be whatever is pointed to by "BG_DIGI".
So do a: SHOW LOG BG_DIGI
As well as: $SHOW DEVICE BG_DIGI

Are you running something from a CD?

Cheers,
Hein.

Re: %dcl-e-open

You can either debug the DCL command procedure involved here, or pass along a problem report to the individual or organization that is maintaining this DCL command procedure on your behalf.

If you're maintaining this DCL command procedure, enable verification (eg: $ SET VERIFY) or otherwise insert some debugging statements (eg: $ WRITE SYS$OUTPUT "debug message") or such.

In this case, it looks that the DCL command OPEN has failed here; that there is either some faulty prolog code, a change that has adversely effected the OPEN command, or a faulty OPEN command. Or there could be a system-level issue arising here, and one that could easily involve some sort of a configuration issue or hardware error; something that has locked a disk.

If you have a support contract, use it. If you don't have a support contract, call in a specialist and/or get a support contract. That, or you're going to be learning rather more about how to support OpenVMS and the hardware and the software involved here. (See above.)

Re: %dcl-e-open

To get some more details about the error, do
$ SHOW DEVICE/FULL BG_DIGI:

If, as would seem likely, the device physical name starts with BG then it is an IP socket. Depending on what TCP/IP stack you are using and what VMS version you are runnning (hint: tell us these things), you can get socket details with the command:

$ UCX SHOW DEVICE /FULL BGn

where BGn is the socket's physical device name that was output with the first command.
I have one, but it's personal.

Re: %dcl-e-open

Hi,

Did this DCL used to work and has just stopped working? Has the open statement changed?

What does

$ucx show dev bg_digi/full

display?

I have attached an INETd (Auxillary Server) example which is probably of little use to you as it uses the $assign service from a 3GL rather than DCL OPEN (but it does have 2PC between Windows SQL Server and DECdtm/Rdb :-)

Re: %dcl-e-open

Richard,

For some strange reason the UCX - TCP/IP services command UCX SHOW DEVICE does not allow you to use a logical name for the socket device - at least up through TCP/IP Services 5.4.
I have one, but it's personal.
