INSTALL and notraceback? $ENQ NODOMAIN Error?

» close window

The Question is:

Two questions:
1. What is the relation between Lock Manager and
   Audit Server ? For example, if the Audit Server is not running and a process
 tries to accquire a lock via SYS$ENQ(), the error status returned is 9460
 (NODOMAIN). If the Audit Server is started the error disappears.
2. Why is it required that INSTALLed images be built with NOTRACEBACK ?
Raj Mohan

The Answer is :

  Please, one question to a posting.
  The restriction around images that are INSTALLed not permitting
  TRACEBACK is intended to prevent privileged images from activating
  a debugger or other similar breach of system security.
 NODOMAIN,  resource domain not found
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  This message can occur under any of the following conditions:
                o The RSDM_ID argument passed to the $ENQ call does not
                  correspond to a valid resource domain for your process.
                o The RSDM_ID argument is erroneously omitted from the $ENQ
                o The system is not running the audit server process.
  User Action:  Take the action that corresponds to the conditions listed
                o Check whether the resource domain is being passed correctly
                  to the $ENQ call.
                o Ensure that the RSDM_ID argument is included in the $ENQ
                o If you are intentionally running the system without the
                  audit server, you must appropriately reconfigure the flags
                  for the SYSGEN parameter SECURITY_POLICY. If you are not
                  intentionally running without the audit server, determine
                  the problem and restart the audit server using the DCL
                  command SET AUDIT/SERVER=START.
