mount openVMS filesysten on Unix

After mounting an openVMS filesystem on a UNIX box, I get error "Permission denied" when I try to access the mounted filesystem with an user (i.e. nagios).
Additional information:
VMS systemname: mizar.ams.sag
UNIX box: amssrv03.ams.sag
username: nagios

OpenVMS:
tcpip show export
/vmsdisk/sdafax amssrv03.ams.sag

tcpip show proxy
NAGIOS OND 0 0 amssrv03.ams.sag
NAGIOS ON 900 900 amssrv03.ams.sag
NAGIOS ON -2 -2 amssrv03.ams.sag

Any hint is greatly appreciated.

Re: mount openVMS filesysten on Unix

these hints do not cover my problem. I can access the mounted VMS filesystem with user root BUT NOT with another user, even if a Proxy definition exist on VMS.

Re: mount openVMS filesysten on Unix

NAGIOS OND 0 0 amssrv03.ams.sag
NAGIOS ON 900 900 amssrv03.ams.sag
NAGIOS ON -2 -2 amssrv03.ams.sag

only the proxy for root is active (the D in OND), the other two are defined, but not active.
If a TCPIP restart does not activate the proxies, the maximum number of proxies is defined.
There was a thread some time ago discussing how to increase the number of proxies.
(
SET CONFIGURATION COMMUNICATION/proxies=N
)

Also try:
$ @tcpip$examples:TCPIP$PROXY_RELOAD
$ tcpip set tcp/signal

to update cache.

This was one of the max number of proxies threads:

Re: mount openVMS filesysten on Unix

Joseph, how to get a proxy active ?????
I have increased the number of proxies to 50, with no change in the behaviour.
The only way it worked was:
I created a new user in OpenVMS, mapped the proxy to the new VMS user, then it worked - the "Prmission denied" error was gone.
If this is the way it works, OK, if not, please explain me, how it should work.

In my Example:
NAGIOS OND 0 0 amssrv03.ams.sag
NAGIOS1 OND 900 900 amssrv03.ams.sag

Re: mount openVMS filesysten on Unix

If
$ @tcpip$examples:TCPIP$PROXY_RELOAD
$ tcpip set tcp/signal

does not do it, then I suppose a TCPIP restart is needed,
i.e @sys$startup:tcpip$shutdown followed by @sys$startup:tcpip$startup.

[ I have restarted TCPIP !!!! ]

and now all proxies are active ?
