The Question is:
I've a problem with purge command. I can't use decnet to purge file on the
other host. I can delete, dir ... but I can't purge. The error message is
"-SYSTEM-W-NONLOCAL, device is not a local device" . I've already added proxy
at uaf and add node nam
e at ncp.
By the way, we've 3 hosts in the same network, some hosts can purge files on
other hosts, but some host can't. What should I do next?
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard asks that the relevent DCL commands and the full
error message text always be provided. (The "-SYSTEM" message prefix
indicates that at least one additional message was displayed.) The
PURGE command used was also not provided. This omission makes many
questions quite difficult to answer, and reported problems rather
more difficult to duplicate.
In this case, the OpenVMS Wizard is unclear as to the specific cause
of the problem, having just (successfully) invoked the following DCL
$ PURGE 0"wizard phoenix$gandalf"::sys$login:x.x
As an alternative, consider passing the PURGE command over to the
remote host for execution. Please see existing discussions of DECnet
task-to-task communications (using aDCL server, or a server implemented
as an executable image) and associated DCL-based examples present here
in Ask The Wizard.
