I am on 7.3 Alpha openVMS. when i try to enable NFS service it fails with following error:

TCPIP> enable service nfs
%TCPIP-E-STARTERROR, error starting NFS service
-TCPIP-E-BADVALUE, value Service User_name is incorrect
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
%TCPIP-E-STARTERROR, error starting NFS service
-RMS-E-RNF, record not found
TCPIP> exit

Re: enabling NFS service failing

What does TCPIP SHOW SERVICE/FULL tell ?
It should look like

tcpip show service nfs/full

Service: NFS
State: Enabled
Port: 2049 Protocol: UDP Address: 0.0.0.0
Inactivity: 0 User_name: TCPIP$NFS Process: TCPIP$NFS


I guess the service is not configured or not configured correctly.
Use tcpip$config to (re)configure NFS server before starting.

ok running the tcpip config fixed the issue , since it also configured the portmapper

thanks
