Re: machine crash vms 7.3.2

Ahmed,

here is a summary of the crashes seen so far:

- there have been 3 crashes with the exact same symptoms as the one shown here. Same bad values (ASCII text) in UCB$L_SVAPTE ('ent:') and UCB$L_BOFF ('nect'), UCB is for NPA0: in all cases. Question is: what is the significance of this data, where does it come from ?

- in the first 2 crashes, the system was running with VMS732_UPDATE-V0300 installed, the 3rd one has IO_ROUTINES from VMS732_SYS-V0800, this implies VMS732_UPDATE-V0400 has been installed recently.

- the most recent crash in IOC$IOPOST_C+0012C occured, because a BUFIO packet (instead of an IRP) was pulled from IOC$GQ_POSTIOQ - the UCB address pulled from that packet was 0 (because if was a BUFIO, not an IRP). Still waiting for dump of that BUFIO packet to see, which software component this may be related to.

- the machine is a 3 processor SMP system, so there could be issues related to SMP synchronization.
