net$server.log generation

when does a net$server.log file will be generated.
I have one decnet task to task communication. It is getting generated in one environment and not in other. When the box/node changes it is not getting generated.

What does that file signifies?
Will it be generated on all environments or any exemptions?

Many thanks
Ravi

Ravi,

if a new NETWORK process is being created for an incoming DECnet-connection is under a specific username and that user's login-directory can be written to by the created process, a NET$SERVER.LOG file should be created.

Re: net$server.log generation

it could be that someone changed sys$system:net$server.com and modified the name of the log file. Or the directory.

Or the T2T reused a process of a just finished T2T (thus append to the file will be done).

Re: net$server.log generation

Ravi,

Failure to create a log file is not considered fatal, and, obviously, can't be logged anywhere.

One way to block creation of new NET$SERVER.LOG files is to create one with version 32767

$ CREATE SYS$LOGIN:NET$SERVER.LOG;32767

Another possibility is the target account lacks write access to it's SYS$LOGIN directory, or delete access to an existing NET$SERVER.LOG.

By blocking log files you're potentially losing useful information. A better compromise to prevent disks being flooded is to set a version limit on the files.

To track where the files should be created, enable login alarms and watch where the processes are being logged in:

$ REPLY/ENABLE=SECURITY
$ SET AUDIT/ALARM/ENABLE=LOGIN=ALL

Re: net$server.log generation

Here is a web search command that can be useful for these questions:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=net%24server.log+site%3Ah71000.www7.hp.com

The Google "site:" keyword targets the search to the specified web server host, and the server listed above is the location of most OpenVMS information and documentation.

Re: net$server.log generation

becuase the log file generation is 32767, it is not generating any new files and it is blocking the new files generation.
So i have deleted this generation and logs got generated.
