The Question is:
We have got 2 systems A & B on the network. We have defined a logical on system
A which points to the database on system B.
AXPVMS>sh log vector$db$dev
"VECTOR$DB$DEV" = "CRWFSH::VECTOR$DB$DEV"
Right now we are in a phase of move to some other location. So, I have another
system, system C, which is configured to work as system B. System C is
remotely located and there is no Decnet connectivity between system A and
system C. My question is how ca
n I achieve the function of the abovesaid logical in my temporary setup?
Thanks & Regards
The Answer is :
You have told the OpenVMS Wizard that you have a logical name, at least
one (unspecified) database, three nodes, limited network connectivity,
and that you need to relocate files.
This information is unfortunately rather insufficient.
The most obvious approach would be to load the user files to archival
media, and reload them on the target system. Other alternatives for
migrating include clustering, but this configuration is dependent on
the availability of the necessary licenses and on the particular
interconnect(s) available amongst the systems.
Redirecting access from one node to another (remotely) depends rather
highly on the particular database -- some databases permit this, and
others do not. Some database packages can use DECnet FAL (which is
what underlies the usual OpenVMS RMS-based remote file access) fore
remote access, and others use ODBC or other protocols for remote access.
Please contact your reseller or Compaq Customer Support for assistance,
as rather more information will be required.
