Binary.errlog file doesnB4t storage information

Hi !
Which can be the cause by the binary.errlog file doesn't storage information. I've already checked the daemon binlogd and it's ok. I recreated the file and I tested with the command logger -b "Teste", but when I execute uerf -R, it only shows uerf version 4.2-011 (122). The TRU64 version is 4.0D and the machine is in cluster.
Thanks.

What type of Alpha system is this? Depending on the system type you may have to use DECevent rather than uerf to view the error log.

Thanks!! I executed the recommended instructions and also stopped and restarted the daemon. Now the file is ok.
