The Question is:
Ftp stopped working on a OpenVMS V6.2-1H3 with UCX version V4.1. It has been
working fine for years but now it just stopped, restarts en reboots had no
effect. Renaming file ucx$ftpserver.log;32667 to ..;0 had no effect.
Identical machine with identical configuration does still work fine , but for
The following messages appear:
INTERnet ACP Process creation success
INTERnet ACP FTP Accept Request from Host: INTERnet ACP detected UCX$FTPD
exiting before 'accept'
INTERnet ACP AUXS error during process exit Status = %RMS-E-CRE
The Answer is :
V4.1 is an antique and should be upgraded to V4.2 with the current
ECO kit applied.
That said, this would appear to be a problem with a file creation
operation. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to locate the
particular file or directory involved.
Check the default directory for the FTPD and ensure that new files
can be created in it, ensure that new files can be created on the
volume, ensure that no log files have reached the 32767 limit, etc.
If you invoke the FTPD directly from an interactive process logged
into the FTPD server username, you can also potentially use the
(undocumented and unsupported) commands:
SET WATCH/CLASS=MAJOR_FUNCTION FILE
SET WATCH/CLASS=NONE FILE
to enable and disable the file activity within the FTPD application.
(CMEXEC or CMKRNL privilege is required.)
Available SET WATCH /CLASS keywords can include the following:
ALL, NONE, MAJOR_FUNCTION, CONTROL_FUNCTION, ATTRIBUTES,
DIRECTORY_OPERATIONS, DUMP, QUOTA_OPERATIONS and PROTECTION.
