Re: Ana/crash not working

Hi,

if you try to put the system dump file OFF the system disk (this functionality is called DOSD = Dump Off System Disk), that disk can NOT be a shadowed disk.

So either use a non-shadowed DOSD disk or leave the dump file on the system disk (in that case, it can be a shadowed system disk).

Re: Ana/crash not working

Try ANA/CRASH/SHADOW_MEMBER=$2$DKB100 to get the dump of the member where is has been written to (Not sure if that capability is already in V7.3-2 though).

Re: Ana/crash not working

Hi Volker,

Thanks for the reply. So then I need to change the dumpstyle parameter and dump_dev accordingly. Currently dumpstyle is set as 13 shall I set it to 9 what is ur recommendations.

Re: Ana/crash not working

Hi,

is there really a valid dump on one of the members of that DSA0: shadowset.

Setting up DOSD is described in the OpenVMS System Manager's Manual Volume 2: chapter Writing the System Dump File to an Alternate Disk

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/82final/aa-pv5nj-tk/aa-pv5nj-tk.html

It clearly says: The dump device cannot be part of a shadow set unless it is also the system device and the master member of the shadow set.

IF you believe there had been a valid system dump written to one of the members for the DSA0: shadowset AND you are eager to try to find out, if it's readable, you could dismount one of the members (with DISM/POLICY=MINI to save you a full shadowcopy afterwards) and then try to access the dump file on the shadowset itself or on the privately mounted removed member.

Re: Ana/crash not working

Hi,

to direct your dumpfile to the system disk, set DUMPSTYLE=9 and DUMP_DEV to the device name(s) of your system disk, if there are multiple pathes or multiple members of the system disk.
