NFS Client and File Versions?

» close window

The Question is:

I am running OpenVMS 7.1 and TCPIP Services V4.2, and I am using NFS Client.  I
 am mounting a Digital Unix system and creating/reading files from it.
My problem is that when I create files, VMS is appending it's version number to
 each file.  How do I get VMS not to append the version numbers.
Kind regards,
Andrew Kirk.

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS applications often expect and specify a file version number,
  and the client dutifully passes the specification through to the NFS
  The OpenVMS Wizard is not particularly aware of a way to disable this
  behaviour, nor to somehow "filter off" the version numbers that are
  passed around via NFS.
