DCL verb (symbol?) and CONFLICT errors?

» close window

The Question is:

When I use the submit/remote command in this way:
$submit/remote node::users:[name]file.com
I get the error:
%DCL-W-CONFLICT, illegal combination of
   command elements - check documentation
I am not real sure as to why I am getting this message.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard infers there exists a symbol SUBMIT, and particularly
  which equates to a command incompatible with /REMOTE.
  Please use the SHOW SYMBOL SUBMIT to check for a symbol.
  A DCL mechanism is available which bypasses symbols, simply add a few
  characters onto the end of the full specification of the verb itself:
    $ submitttt/remote node::users:[name]file.com
  Strictly speaking, this particular behaviour of the DCL parser is not
  supported, not documented, and may be changed without notice.
