The Question is:
We try to backup a disk using the following command:
For some files we get the following error:
%BACKUP-E-READVERR, virtual read error on file [PROD.NID.LNR]LNR08.EXE;5 at bloc
-SYSTEM-F-INSFMEM, insufficient dynamic memory
Note that the backup continues after this error
with other files.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard will assume that you have set the process
quotas for the BACKUP username to the values specified in the
OpenVMS System Manager's Manual (for BACKUP operator usernames),
and will also assume that you are aware that /IGNORE=INTERLOCK
is equivilent to permitting data inconsistencies; that the
interlocks exist for a reason and that the implications of
overriding the interlocks is fully understood.
READVERR, virtual read error on file 'file-name' at block 'block-
Facility: BACKUP, Backup Utility
Explanation: The Backup utility received an error while reading a block
associated with the specified file.
User Action: Determine why the file could not be read and repeat the backup
INSFMEM, insufficient dynamic memory
Facility: SYSTEM, System Services
Explanation: Either a command or image exhausted the system pool of
available dynamic memory and the system cannot complete the
request, or the system manager did not allocate enough dynamic
User Action: Check for a programming error; this status code can be
returned from a system service request when the image has
disabled resource wait mode. Notify the system manager if
insufficient memory is allocated.

The OpenVMS Wizard would then suggest checking for hardware errors, applying
all current mandatory ECO kits and all relevent ECO kits, analyzing the disk
structure, and re-writing this particular file.
