How to reset device error count on OpenVMS V6.2-1H3

I found this command in another thread, but it doesn't work:

$ SET DEVICE/RESET=ERROR_COUNT MKA100:
%DCL-W-IVQUAL, unrecognized qualifier - check validity, spelling, and placement
\RESET\
$

I assume this is because it's such an old version. Is there an equivalent command in V6.2 ?
Thanks

Hello

Zdec works with VMS 6.2

It is listed
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/freeware/v8_00freeware_abstract.txt

It should be in the disk3 of the VMS Freeware
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/freeware/

Thanks, but this is a sensitive system and changes like installing new software would never get approved.
How can I find out if it's already installed, and what would be the command to reset the error count?
(Sorry, Unix admin with limited VMS)

if this is not an option, plan a reboot of your computer.

To the best of my knowledge, there is not an HP approved tool existing for VMS 6.2-1H3, and I think there will never be.

Gordon,

The other option of course is to simply note the current error count and watch for changes. There's no clear management reason that this should be 0.
