Resolving DECnet LINKABORT Error?

» close window

The Question is:

What would cause an OpenVMS error  'SYSTEM-F-LINKABORT  network parnet aborted
 logical link'  when DECnetting to another node to run a process there? What
 fixes are recommended?

The Answer is :

  Check the contents of the log file typically created on the remote
  node, as a start.  If this was a SET HOST (CTERM) session, check
  for sufficient process quotas and system resources (pool, etc) on
  the originating and destination node, and check for any error messages
  reported prior to the link disconnection -- insufficient process quotas
  and insufficient system resources can cause problems with network
  links, and can also prevent the display of error messages.  Also
  check the DECnet error counts for any specific indications.
 LINKABORT,  network partner aborted logical link
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  The remote process disconnected the logical link either
                because the process exited prematurely or because it is the
                normal way for the process to disconnect the link.
  User Action:  Check to see if the node is reachable, then retry.
